We only live 60 miles away but we keep coming back. The combination of the beautiful town and the old fashioned homely nature of this hotel are a winning combination. We always try to visit on a Tuesday night when their Indian Head Chef puts on a great curry evening. This trip has coincided with a Jan half price offer...

The Royal Castle Hotel is a lovely place to visit, Whether we have been eating there or drinking we have enjoyed sitting by a warm cosy fire. We recently dined there and had their Sunday roast, it was excellent and at a good price. There were several real ales on sale so we just had to sample a few of...

Fabulous location. Fabulous decor. Ok service. Food could have been better. We're being picky but my wife is vegan and we weren't 100% sure when they said the soup was vegan and it came with butter for the bread, so I don't think she listened properly. Also we were wowed by the setting and the feel of the place but...

We love the Royal Castle and have visited and been very well fed on numerous occasions. This time we had our young Puppy with us and were welcomed in the usual way, all the meals that we had were of exceptional quality. It was the Christmas Market Weekend and we had some lovely mulled wine and mince pies in the...

All round a great experience staying here. Character property in a great location with nice rooms. Staff being very welcoming and helpful creates a nice atmosphere. The two bars are also nice places to spend some time. But I advise you to book direct with the hotel as you will then get breakfasts included for the same price. You will...

This is the place to get a great meal. We visited at lunchtime and found it fairly busy, but they were very obliging in recommending a place for us in the crowded dining area. The staff were superb and nothing was too much trouble. Even the manager/owner made an appearance and was assisting someone with walking difficulties to find somewhere...

We've just got back from our 4th Christmas break at the Royal Castle in Dartmouth. Again it was excellent in every way. The staff, accommodation, food, bars, location and all the other people staying and visiting were great.
