Just got back from a wonderful weekend at The Royal. The rooms were lovely and spacious, there were 16 of us in the party and we were all accommodated pretty close to each other. The food and service were great, all the staff could not do enough to help, and were very attentive, obliging by taking photos for us and...

Lovey hotel, lovely staff, had three days chilling out, my only gripe is that the windows in our room No 16 didn't open, very clean, but who ever did some small jobs to the bathroom should change their trade, scabby piece of wood holding the toilet together, also no room in bathroom to put your toiletries other than on the...

A great example of how a Hotel should operate....Great location, lovely atmosphere, and great staff especially Carrie, Lucy, Gryff, Sarah, and Rob. Lovely clean , well appointed rooms. Nice ambience in the Bar during the evening, and polite, efficient service in the restaurant and during breakfast. Very well done to Sally and Matt, and their helpful and courteous staff.

This hotel is situated in a great elevated position above the town however, all attractions are within easy walking distance. Old English Inns offer great value with their winter discounts On this visit we decided to up grade to a superior room, this was more like a small suite, with a large window giving a fantastic view of the countryside...
