The hotel hosted our Burns night party this year and did a wonderful job. The good was excellent and the service from all of the team friendly effective and engaging. We are already looking forward to running next year's event.

Came here with some friends for afternoon tea. I've had it at a few places now and this was definitely one of the best! Loads of food, two rounds of tea and the option to take a doggy bag home after! What is not to love? :) Would recommend going. Very well priced and it was busy in there, staff...

We stayed at the Royal as part of a wedding party - held elsewhere - we had 3 rooms. Whilst the rooms were nice and beds comfortable, two of the rooms were really cold and one smelt strongly of sewage. We got to our rooms past 11 pm and tired, so not inclined to raise these issues with night staff....

Stayed here for one night with a weeding party. On arrival no parking available, car park very small, was told that there is parking in roads either side of hotel, there was but permit holders only! My husband drove round for 20 minutes looking for parking. When booking in was asked to pay even though the room had already been...

We celebrated our daughter's wedding on 7/01/17 at the Royal Wells Hotel. It was such a memorable occasion. Our thanks to James, the manager and Helen the coordinator. Also to Annabelle and Gemma and all the rest of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. They really made our daughter and her new husband's day very special. The ceremony room...

On arrival our room wasn't ready (a portent of things to come) but we were advised that as soon as it was we would be notified. Well that didn't happen and had i not chased it up we would still be sitting in reception! In spite of paying £140 (ugh) for the the best available room, one of the curtains...

An otherwise good hotel was spoiled by a disastrous breakfast, Yogurt on cereal and berries took ages to arrive. Why not have it prepared along with the self serve juices? The cooked plate took 35+ minutes!! Various excuses were offered. Manager failed to surface after 3 requests to the young waitresses. Suggestions to the Manager: 1. Always come quickly to...

The hotel was nice but could have been much better, Room was large but no safe, hot water took forever. Dogs barking and quite noisy Breakfast was not bad but on second day had to send eggs benedict back as too much vinegar bacon over cooked and coffee cold. Staff was very young but did try to help

Very friendly and welcoming staff, rooms comfortable. Only let down by possibly a lack of staff. Rooms not provide with milk for tea (a simple oversight I expect) but breakfast was very slow, and the Avocado served was nowhere near ripe and to hard to cut. Staff were excellent in deal with our issue and offer an alternative but after...

What an effort is was to get the breakfast waiters to get anything correct. Service was appalling. I also left a charger in the room and have contacted the hotel via 4 different methods (phone, email, Facebook and twitter) to ask them to send it to me. They simply don't bother responding. How a hotel with such poor service manages...
