Booked a double and single room and was upgraded to a sea view. Double room spacious with excellent sea views. Room well equipped and very clean....

The rooms are very clean also all the public areas and restaurant. Lovely views from the restaurant and the lounge bar. They also have function rooms available. They provide bar meals...

Good hotel, clean, well decorated, good food and restaurant, pleasant, helpful staff. Hotel has parking for 42 cars, once full it becomes a problem, typical of the area. Right on seafront with access to the beach across the road. Recommended.

The room we had at the Royal, was a double, tidy compact, for us ok as we only use it to sleep and getting ready. The restaurant was buffet for both Dinner and Breakfast, service was quick, except the last...

Stayed here for a friends wedding, its a lovely large hotel room was spotless as was the bathroom. Bed comfortable. Staff Friendly and great Buffet Breakfast. The building is gorgeous and the Best Western are doing well keeping it up to date . Will stay again. Love Best Western Hotels a much nicer atmosphere than many chains.

Fantastic tea dance organised by Mrs Pat Andrew. over 70 people attended and the hot Pierre did a grand job too. Such a shame its ending next week, but looking forward to supporting Pat Andrew at the Royal Maritime Hotel in Old Portsmouth from 26th April 2017
