I've just returned from a Spa Break weekend at the Royal Hotel. We booked two nights, with breakfast, evening meal, cream tea and a 2 hour session at the Thermae Bath Spa. I stayed with my four sister in law's and we stayed in two rooms, one triple one twin. Good comfy rooms, tea/coffee making facilites and an en suite...

My friend Jane & I stayed at the Royal Hotel on the Travelzoo deal from 24th to 26th March 2015. For just under £150 each we got B & B - delicious breakfast with lots to choose from, a glass of champagne, afternoon cream tea & a 3 course evening meal on all 3 days. The food was excellent, the...

Have to agree with all the fellow contributors - this hotel is excellent value on the Travelzoo deal with all the extra goodies but apart from that we really appreciated the cheerful and helpful staff.

We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Royal. Our deal included afternoon cream tea, 3 course a la carte dinner with a glass of champagne and a full breakfast - what value for money!

Reviewed 23 March 2015

Stayed one night as part of a deal with the Spa close by. Its an old building, with plenty of character and history, and some of that manifests itself in a few quirky features, high ceilings, some odd layouts and a few squeaky floorboards...but none of that was a negative. The room was clean and fresh and whilst it looks...

Jersey, United Kingdom
Reviewed 22 March 2015

My daughter was called to audition at Bath Spa university, the trip from Jersey necessitated an overnight stay in Bath - a city unknown to me. I decided that proximity to the railway station was a must, in order to minimise travel by taxi around an unfamilliar town. The Royal was chosen, and the location really is right opposite the...

Tavira, Portugal

The hotel is one of our favourites; when we enter we are greeted with a warm and welcoming smile which is an attitude typical of all the staff. The hotel, which is not modern and impersonal, exudes this approach. Being close to the station it is handy for travellers but there was no noise from trains. Breakfasts were great and...
