Been here before and food and service was good. However went here for lunch with a friend and even though service was good from the waitress and food and wait for the food wasn't as good as my previous visit. We ordered 2 Sunday lunches and fish and chips and it took far to long to come out. Other customers...

Stayed here for three nights. Busy hotel fully booked. Lovely setting on shingle beach. Staff very friendly and helpful but service in bar etc very slow but they were busy. Breakfast good and good pub menu. Didn't eat at hotel but sure it was good. Will stay again and hope to get one of the balcony rooms next time.

Welcoming staff and good service.The food was good with nice choice. We have a wheelchair user and the facilities were very adequate. There are two restaurant venue choices, the main restaurant and the lower restaurant close to the seafront. Both offer the same excellent standard

We stayed two nights in this nice hotel with excellent location just by the beach in Deal. There is short walk to very nice restaurants near by (the one in hotel is not too bad either, quite noisy though). Lot of nice activites near by as well. Hotel was old in a good way, room was quite spacious and comfortable...

I stayed in a large family room which was nicely furnished. The hotel is a historic inn and is in a good central location by the beach. No real amenities but the bar and restaurant were nice enough. Breakfast was OK but not of 5 star quality - choice was a little limited which is not surprising given it is...

Never did I think I would ever have anything remotely negative to write about the Royal Hotel in Deal, as we’ve always enjoyed our prior stays there. The rooms have been "upgraded", which is ok, except that the bed is no where near as comfortable as the old one was, nor are the pillows as soft and comforting. The room...

We stayed for one night in the Hamilton room. All I can is it was excellent. Massive bed, stylishly decorated room. French Windows to a balcony just a few metres from the beach. The bathroom was also excellent. Breakfast good and staff were friendly and efficient. Not the most modern hotel but we will be going back.

Deal is a lovely little seaside town, good independent shops and places to eat. This hotel is ideally situated. It is clean, has lots of character, and the advantage of having a seafront bar. We ate there one night, and the food was reasonably priced and good value for money. You can eat in the bar or the hotel dining...

We had a one night stay on our way to using the Euro Tunnel. We booked a family room which on first inspection seemed very nice. However, as soon as you look a bit further you find there are quite a few maintenance issues. Grout failing out in the bathroom, lots of cracked tiles, damaged walls, shabby furniture. Looking out...

My Husband and I stayed in the Wellington Suite for two nights in may and we had a brilliant stay at The Royal. The Suite was a great size, with a huge bed and really nicely decorated. A roll top bath sat in the corner of the room looking over the Deal Pier. The hotel was right on the beach...
