You get what you pay for
Ok. This was just a two night stay at the Royal Hotel in Woolacombe. Although the hotel is maybe half a mile up the main road from the sea, it does have a great view over the coast and surrounding hills. The hotel has seen better days - It has not seen much updating for many years. This goes for the room we had and all the public spaces. The bed was hard and the walls seemed to be thin - we could hear snoring and other people's televisions... The swimming pool, in particular, needs a lot of money spent on it.....
However.... at £60 a night for three of us including breakfast, a lot of the above is irrelevant. Let's face it - a youth hostel these days would probably not be much less. The hotel is nice and warm, the water was hot, swimming pool warm. There is a full size snooker table, a table tennis table, a large bar area ... In short there are several things to keep kids entertained. Breakfast was good too. My main gripe would have been with the receptionist who seemed more intent looking at her computer than being friendly...

Another short stay
Another overnight stay, hotel very quite but then it is winter, again staff were helpful & polite - it is like stepping back in time but rather in a quirky way not horrible. We had a room with a view this time which was lovely, actually sat outside on the balcony with my morning coffee in the sunshine looking over the valley to the sea. Didn't have time to have breakfast this time.

Lovely View
We were very fortunate to be given a room with a view of the bay. Being January it was a bit too cold to sit on the balcony but could imagine enjoying a glass of wine watching the sun go down! The room was warm and clean. The bed linen and towels were fresh. We weren't bothered about the age of the bathroom fixtures but didn't like the sliding doors, they are noisy and you could hear them from other rooms. Some areas of the hotel have been refurbished, so some areas are showing their age.

The one thing that let the room down was the dirty headboard (room 310)
