The Royal is a Grade II listed building and first opened as a hotel in 1846 and has been owned by the present owners since 1995. During this time there has been an ongoing programme of renovation and improvements to ensure that this lovely property, which was designed by Brunel, is well maintained and provides attractive facilities for our many guests.
Recent improvements include the total refurbishment of all bathrooms and showers and the redecoration and restyling of the restaurant to create a more informal dining environment has just been completed resulting in a stylish Brasserie which we have named "Brasserie Brunel” as a tribute to the famous designer.
We have an excellent reputation for food and a friendly, relaxing atmosphere. The Royal is totally non-smoking.
