We stayed for two nights on 11th and 12th May, booking direct with this hotel certainly gets you a good room rate. We stayed...

A lovely hotel we thought, staff were all excellent and efficient. Ate there on 3 of the nights and can't complain about anything, the service was spot on. After sitting down I think the longest we waited was only 2 minutes before a waitress took our drinks order, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. As for breakfast, I...

We decided on the house home made beef hamburgers. What a mistake!!! The toasted bread roll was burnt , the hamburger was burnt they were like bricks,the salad was soggy and weeping like a willow. The coleslaw had seen better days and was nicely fermenting in its little pot next to the so called hamburger. Why did we not send...

Dropped into Deal for the day. Great spot. Walked the front and saw a few attractions and then stopped here for coffee and a muffin. Nice bar on the front looking out to sea. Looked a nice hotel with staff waiting to serve.

Wonderful setting right on the shore and a very light bright room with an inviting ambiance. We had a couple nice beers but left after noticing the waste paper basket just on the public side of the kitchen door with papers and trash overflowing onto the restaurant floor while no less than a half dozen staff, including the very chubby...

Sunny terrace great view- Royal you have everything that makes a great coffee/ breakfast venue. So why are you using cheap , nasty tasting rosettes of catering ' spread' on your toast? Please - so we can resume our visits, use proper butter.

Views are average.. the staff seem to have been out all weekend so service is poor presentation is medium and for the way they handle your order from beginning to end is awful. Will...

Had breakfast in this hotel today with friends. I ordered the Avocado and Bacon on Sourdough with a poached egg and tomato salsa . It sounded appetising on the menu but that is where it ended. It was cold tomato (tasted tinned) The 'Avocado ' was a squeeze from a tube of green paste and the poached egg was hard....

Great hotel, needs new mattress! Staff are good but not engaged and could be more focused. Nice big rooms and friendly and very clean and comfortable hotel. New mattresses and better staff and the hotel would be first class.

We needed to stay in Deal for one night to attend a funeral and this hotel was ideal. We were driving up from Wales and the hotel ensured our room was ready early so we could change for the event. Our room was spacious, well appointed and clean, with a choice of shower or bath. There is an excellent breakfast...
