Stayed here a few weeks ago as part of a visit to Dartmouth for a joint birthday celebration with my best friend. The staff were excellent all round, we had a very nice room and dinner and breakfast were both enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Stayed for a few nights after Easter, I have stayed here before and really enjoyed the experience so came back and was not disappointed. Staff from cleaners, reception, bar, breakfast, managers are really friendly and make sure the stay is up to expectations. This is an old hotel but is spotless, really first class, can't be easy due to all...

The staff and food here simple first class and I cannot fault. But what was totally disappointing was the room. I have stayed at hotels all over UK and around the world so I have a good feel if I get room worthy of cost. Here for £160.00 A night I got a small box room. I knew when booking...

Having stayed at The Toyal Castle for a number of years it is a pleasure to report that the hotel treats all its guests, without exception, with the most friendly and attentive way by all members of staff, again without exception.

Lovely hotel and very welcoming staff. Food extremely good, especially breakfast with a good selection. The room we had overlooked the harbour and it was very comfortable. The only slight niggle was the dessert in the main restaurant was expensive for the tiny portion they served, although it was delicious, we felt it could be more generous.

Great for pub food and local beers look out for curry night. The Sunday carvery is excellent. This is a very stylish venue with fabulous views across the River Dart harbour. Do visit and enjoy the local events that Dartmouth has to offer including the music and food festivals and regatta!

Old fashioned decor but with a warm welcome, excellent service and the best breakfast we have had in years. Hotels like this are sadly disappearing, being swallowed up by faceless business groups. Utterly charming. We will be back.

From the moment you arrive at the Royal Castle Hotel, you know that you have a delightful stay. All the team are happy and smiling and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent both in the dining room and bar. The bedrooms are a delight, we had a four poster bed and an excellent bathroom. Next time we...
