Hotel car park is small (aprox 10/12 cars) so you have to be lucky to get one.Room was exceptionally small for a double room. No room to swing a cat.Standard of cleanliness was average. The bathroom was clean,carpets hoovered,tables and tv polished. But look further it was poor, the windows werent cleaned and had an awful amount of dust all up the side wall. Dust was also clinging to the walls in corners. Stain on the ceiling from historic leak that needs to painted. Down to the bar to order food an drinks,oh dear,cash only. Card machine in bits. Had a starter and was ok but then waited for 40mins for fish and chips to arrive. terrible service. All whilst listening to terrible background music. Upon leaving informed reception about cleanliness issue and she took our mobile to show manager. Response was that House keeping will be informed. But mngr couldnt be bothered to come out and apologizes in person or offer a refund or free drink. Poor show. Value for money not.

Room tip: Go to a Travelodge...

Got a really cool, albeit chilly, room at the top of the hotel. Decent size room and bathroom. Would definately stay here again. Nice food both for evening meal and breakfast. I thought i had reviewed this hotel before but it appears not.

We arrived late from an island ferry and the hotel was only a moment from the pier. Our twin room was comfortable, clean and had a view of the sunset over Kerrera. We had drinks in the hotel and all the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

We have been going to this hotel for a few years. Our room was lovely and clean and airy, bathroom was also lovely. Only problem there was no chicken on the evening meal menu for any of the nights and I don't really like meat. But apart from that we really had a lovely time. I would give the Royal a five star thumps up.

Room tip: Room 208 is nice and quiet
