Reviews - The Royal Hotel

3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
South Parade, , , Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JP
The Royal Hotel is a charismatic, historic and luxuriously appointed Georgian hotel centrally located within Weston-Super-Mare in a unique situation. It enjoys both a wonderful sea views and close proximity to the promenade, town centre, Italian Gardens, Winter Gardens, Sovereign shopping centre and the Jill Dando Memorial Garden.

The Hotel is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Somerset countryside and many places of interest that are within easy travelling distance: Cheddar Caves & Wookey Hole, Bristol City & Water Front, city of Bath, Cribbs Causeway Retail Park, Quantock Mendip Hills and Glastonbury & Wells.

In 1810 The Royal Hotel was the first hotel to be opened in Weston-Super-Mare. It is set back from the sea front behind extensive lawns, has extensive car parking and is easily accessible by car, coach and rail. For guests travelling by air, the drive from Bristol airport takes approximately 25 minutes.

All 37 bedrooms are fitted to a select standard and all very well equipped. In addition several of the bedrooms are themed to a superior standard.

The Royal Hotel epitomises the elegant regency style that has made Weston-Super-Mare famous. The recently refurbished Golden Jubilee Restaurant has an excellent reputation with hotel guests and local residents alike. This is due to the excellent menu devised by our Head Chef, which includes dishes to tempt and excite all tastes. The menu changes frequently as our Chef creates new dishes for all our guests to enjoy.

The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Somerset countryside.

Disappointing
Disappointing really as from the outside it looks as the name suggests, 'Royal'. Unfortunately it was not. The Accommodation was a little tired and dated, but you can forgive that, but we were disappointed to find that the mattress was very creaky and the springs were noisy and that was just sitting on it! The pillows were 'crackly' as they had waterproof cover's on them. I chose not to take them off as after inspecting the pillows, they were long overdue to be replaced. But by far the worst thing was that it was impossible to take a shower during the 20 hours that we were there due to the scalding water even on the coldest setting. Reception were already aware that this was a problem and I was disappointed that they didn't even offer a part refund for the inconvenience. The reason for our stay was that we were attending a charity ball at The Pier, but when the music became too loud we retreated back to the hotel for a drink. There were 12 of us and although it was only 11.45pm, we were greeted by surly staff barking out that they stop serving at midnight before even asking if any of us were resident. I am amazed that in this day and age when hotels are struggling for trade, we could be spoken to in this way. With a round of drinks costing £40, I would have thought they would be pleased to take a bit of extra cash for not much effort. Needless to say, we won't be returning or recommending this hotel.

Excellent hotel, great position, good value for money and as the parking is free comparable with budjet hotels in the area. We will definately be returning.

Great hotel
Great hotel, handy for the beach and the local amenities. Room was great only downside was the noise from the local wine bar/ club which meant we couldn't leave the window open even though it was a really warm night (but not the hotels fault). Breakfast fabulous with a great choice and the staff were very polite and attentive. Would definitely stay again but would request a room on the other side of the hotel.
