Don't be dismayed when you arrive at The Royal Hotel in daylight, to an empty car park, once inside the pub doors it's actually acceptable and although I can't comment on the basic rooms, the upgraded rooms are very nicely furnished, although could be cold at times. Reception provided a spare heater without request as it was a cold day....

A complete tip. No heating in room. Windows do not close or lock. A fire hazard. Poor access. Filthy. Only stayed as got here very late and tired. Nothing on their website is true. It should be shut down. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

My Son and I stayed here overnight as we were working locally and it made more sense to do so than go home. The hotel is undergoing a lot of work and it is not frankly in the best of surroundings. The staff were polite, and although the whole thing is ramshackle, the room was very clean, the beds were...

Stayed in the hotel for 1 night for the Super Bike Championships at Brands Hatch. On arrival we were shocked as it looked a lot different to the pictures on the Website. Went into reception, no one there.... sign said to go through to the bar to be checked in. So we battled our way through the locals in the...

Stayed recently, no heating in room & it's mid-October!! Very dusty & drab rooms which aggravated my chest!! Restaurant had a blip....so had to either order a take-away or dine out... where in Purfleet can you dine? Luckily we found a lovely Indian restaurant & taxi firm!! So no I won't stay again & nor will I recommend it!

AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! We pre-booked and paid for our room online, and on the day we tried to call to discuss our check in, as we were going to be arriving late at night. However, after several attempts no one picked up the phone. We then arrived at night after the wedding we had attended, only to find that there...

Used to come to this pub/Hotel back in the seventies and eighties so thought we would give it a try for a couple of drinks as it has a great location next to the river, thoughts of how it was in it's heyday where the place was busy with families and a great restaurant serving good food with a carvery...

I'm not one to complain but the staff are rather rude, my room hasn't been serviced in 2 days, and I'm staying for 4 nights... I've had to ask for clean towels, tea, milk etc every day as well as clean towels, emptied my own bin and put it in the skip outside! The shower leaks all over the floor...

Clean room (but the hall way smells badly of smoke as people are obviously smoking with the door open) with a nice view and a path to walk along the Thames. Hard to find anywhere to park or anyone to check you in or out as there isn't anyone on the main desk and the bar is busy. The rooms...
