My partner and I absolutely loved our stay at the Royal. We affectionately nicknamed our room the Duck Egg (in reference to the colour on the walls). The room looked just as good as the photographs online, if not better. Not only that, the room was huge, as was the very comfortable bed, it was spotlessly clean and very tastefully...

Plenty of added extras in the room like a coffee machine, bottled water, quality biscuits and a proper hairdryer!
