First time stay at an excellent traditional style hotel. Room was spacious and slept very well on a large comfortable double bed. Evening meal and breakfast were delicious as was the wine. Nothing to complain about and more than happy to recommend!
Clearly a favourite with older couples and singles who return again and again. We arrived without a booking and were lucky to get the last deluxe room which was beautifully set up with a separate toilet and lux bathroom and a window overlooking the front garden. The hotel is family run and other guests were treated like old friends. The restaurant was quite grand and regular guests seemed to have their "own" tables - bottles of wine were left unfinished on the tables for the following night. The meal was very good and we had a delightful young male waiter with whom we communicated in broken French and broken English. His sense of humour given his workload made our evening. This is a lovely hotel but we felt a little as though we could have been in a very upmarket private retirement home. It was certainly not Fawlty Towers but we thought of the two old ladies who reside there. The whole town of Royat smacks of a past era.…
I stayed at the Royal Hotel Saint-Mart in Royat for six days attending a conference with several colleagues. The hotel is located in a 19th century building with an interesting WWII history. As you would expect, an old building comes with its own charming issues such as non uniform rooms, creaking floors, and corridor oddities. That, of course, is part of the charm. Overall, the rooms are quite decent, the humongous beds satisfying, and bathrooms well appointed. The charm does not come without downsides. Rooms facing the entrance courtyard can be very noisy. Between late arrivals, groups congregating with animated conversation to the wee hours, and hotel services (e.g. laundry and garbage sorting) starting at 7:30 AM you may find it hard to get a good night’s rest. That’s especially true if you get a room with single pane glass set in a charming cast iron frame – not exactly sound proof. That’s unfortunate as these rooms tend to be the most spacious. Avoid the rooms near the hotel entrance. Your other option is rear facing rooms. Those come with the downside of being across the railroad tracks. While quieter, my colleagues told me that you’ll likely be roused by the first train at 6:30 AM. They also are not immune to late night animated conversation. All in all, I counted only a handful of corner rooms that would keep a light sleeper happy. Non-uniform rooms also mean that bathrooms are not equally equipped. All have hand showers but not all have shower head holders. Those that do not also do not have shower curtains. If a shower experience is important, you must ask for a room with a real shower -- asking for a shower curtain should be sufficient to avoid a long explanation. Corridor oddities mostly impact handicap access. Not all rooms are easily accessible. That may not matter much since the handicap accessible outside door is usually blocked by parked cars. While there is an elevator it’s unlikely to accommodate a motorized wheel chair. So, if you require wheel chair access, this hotel may be a poor choice. The starch-heavy breakfast is average though the coffee is surprisingly good. Alternatives are a 5 minute walk away. If you want to avoid the 14 USD breakfast charge you need to proactively take care of it when you check in. The hotel also hosts a very popular restaurant that’s an outstanding value. I recommend you try it at least once. The staff is beyond charming. While language skills vary (unless you speak French) they are thoughtful, patient, and go out of their way to help. If you manage to get the right room, the Royal Hotel Saint-Mart will be a delight.…
The hotel is family owned and run in good position near the station. The restaurant has good food and service. The owner was very helpful when we had a car problem and we were able to stay an extra night which was very nice.
Only stayed one night but the room we had was nice and cosy. Modern bathroom but a little old fashioned bed with blanket and eiderdown covering . We had dinner in the restaurant which was first class . Service could not be faulted Free parking and wifi Location to this spa town was within easy walking distance History of the venue was explained to us by the owner and the building has a lot to tell Would stay here again when in the area
