staff where very friendly and the rooms were amazing for the price

Rugby weekend
Is a very nice hotel, brilliantly located with nice rooms and friendly helpful staff, however we were on the 6th floor and could still hear a lot of noise coming from the pubs and clubs in the street. This was probably made worse by the fact that it was a weekend though.
Ffion, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Lift was out of order and my room was on the 4th floor. Staff were apologetic and provided a drinks voucher as a good will gesture.
Claire, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Unfortunately the lifts were out of service and I was on the fifth floor. But I was offered an upgrade if I was to book a future stay. Overall I was happy with my experience in the Royal and will be returning sometime later in the year.
Mark, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Lovely staff but not worth the money
This hotel was not what I would rate as a 4 star, it was quite worn and there was hair around the shower the toilet didn’t flush properly and floor was a bit sticky in some places. The decor was worn.The lift didn’t work so although vouchers were received this was difficult having had spinal surgery
