Price - good Meals - apart from the cold carrot and coriander soup, quite good and tasty. Breakfast was nice. I understand there is a relief manager but the staff were helpful. Perhaps worth noting that I was the ONLY person eating so can't say if it was slow but the relief manager was very helpful. No cask beer that...

Clean, comfortable rooms. Was only here one night, and found it very good value. Wouldn't hesitate to return if I'm ever in the area again. Short walking distance to the town centre, and handy for the football ground.

We went for a meal here 3 weeks ago with friends. As we walked in there was an offer outside on the A-board, 2 steaks and wine for £20 (there were no specific time or dates listed). We found a table and went to order drinks at the bar. It took just over 15 minutes to get served for 2...

Spent a very nice Saturday night at The Royal in Scunthorpe. I am surprised at the last February review where someone said the rooms have not been refurbished. The smell of fresh paint was everywhere, including the rooms. Typical above a bar establishment well worth £45 a night. Scunthorpe is not for me, but had the hotel been transported to...

I stayed here only one night and then moved to other place! The place is deadly old! Someone wrote, that it has been renovated, but they renovated only pub - rooms remain the same! They are very old, dusty and the carpet smells awful! It seems they recently painted the walls in corridors, so you get the paint smell free...

After hearing about the refurbishment in the telegraph, me and my family decided to give the place a try, and we're glad that we did! The place has vastly improved since I last visited, the decor is beautiful, stylish and comfy. As soon as you step in the front doors you are welcomed into a friendly atmosphere with staff who...

I strongly advise Trip Advisor to review it's settings as the latest unjust comment from Rob E, is slanderous and a defamation of character. I also recommend The Royal Hotel to take down the review, I can imagine the person mentioned in his poorly spelt and terrible use of grammar review will not be too happy, and hasn't the opportunity...

Stayed at the Royal for two nights in December 2016. Very basic but you get what you pay for. We checked in late at night but after a little wait someone came and showed us to our room. Rooms were basic but the beds were really comfy. Rooms could do with a lick of paint but overall I enjoyed my...
