The hotel has the monopoly in Dartmouth as the only 4 star hotel and as a result overcharge for the value and experience. Good food in the restaurant with great service however the value and comfort do not justify the over priced rooms.

Lovely old building. The Ladies washroom is upstairs and as you go upstairs you get an appreciation of how old this building is with the sloping floors and call bells on the wall. I would like to stay here one day and spend some lazy time by the river Dart. We had a sharing platter and two coffees. Very tasty....

We tried the Tuesday curry 'buffet' night for £10.95. The price does include a dessert, however, the choice is limited. It seems to me that the diners here are easily pleased for paying over and above for what's on offer at this place. Also, bar staff were more interested in putting things away behind the bar rather than serving/greeting customers....

Staff were very helpful. We were upgraded to a room with a view, which was really kind for our anniversary....much appreciated thanks. Very clean, and the breakfast was scrummy! A lovely area to explore and walk the coast from.

The location of the Royal Castle is excellent, right in the heart of Dartmouth. Beautiful views over the River Dart.

The only downside was the many flights of stairs and...

Stopped here for lunch and loved the ambience- decorated as a traditional old English pub offering a great menu and good wine list. The service was excellent and the food great quality and value for money. Dog friendly too.

It is always a real pleasure to stay at the Royal Castle from the moment you step in the door of this atmospheric establishment. The owner Nigel has time for every guest which is a rare quality these days. The staff, especially Tony, make you feel right at home. Quality accommodation, delicious food and the best staff. What more could...

Haven't stayed here, but have eaten in the bar a number of times. Good beer on tap, comfy seating and dogs are allowed. The food is good, possibly not as good as previous years. Centrally located with ample street parking, especially out of season

Easy to find hotel, no problems parking outside for unloading and valet parking. Upgraded to river view room upon arrival. Really nice room, plenty of space, super comfortable king sized bed, large luxury bathroom with shower and jacuzzi, scrummy breakfast. Staff super welcoming and helpful. And all for £100 for the night, what's not to like? We also ate dinner...

This is not the first time we've stayed at The Royal Castle and it certainly won't be the last! The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Its a dog friendly hotel where our canine chums are treated like guests!
