Lovely restaurant, polite and friendly staff, and the food was quick to arrive. Quite pricey but worth it for the quality and portion sizes of the food. Well presented inside and out, and great views of the harbour from some tables. Would reccommend

Had lunch here 29/7/16. Would highly recommend the hotel for lunch. Service and meal were excellent. Did not stay here but the hotel looked really nice and clean. If you are in the area I could recommend eating here and by the look of the interior I would think it would be a lovely place to stay.

I stayed at the Royal three years ago and loved it. This time I found it had lost a lot of its charm. Not sure if there are new owners, but something has changed. I got the impression that no one seemed to care about the hotel and its guests. There were a lot of little things that added up...

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your comments. We apologize for the shortcomings you noted during your return stay with us. The Royal has not changed ownership, but was experiencing several staff shortages due to illness at the time of your visit. Many of the things you have noted related specifically to that and are not at all what we look...

We had a great third floor room overlooking the harbour. Furnishings were very good quality, bed was comfortable, room was very clean. Even though the hotel is historic, it has been completely outfitted to modern standards. The restaurant and pub on the first floor are among the best places to eat in Campbeltown

Booked in for a 5 day stay and were not disappointed, staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. The food was excellent and plenty of it, breakfast set you up for the day. Its right on the Harbour but very peaceful.

We popped into the restaurant for lunch and it was excellent. I see the previous review had qualms with the staff....well I have to say they were all excellent when we were in. They could not have been more helpful or friendly. The food was excellent and beware if you have the sandwich choice it is a meal sized portion....

We had travelled from Australia and decided to forage the heritage of the MacAlister clan. It is quite a distance to Campbeltown and we were exhausted when we arrived in town. After visiting the information centre, noting we had past Glenbarr Abbey - the home of the clan, we decided to have lunch at the Black Sheep Pub. Lunch ordered,...
