Had breakfast in this hotel today with friends. I ordered the Avocado and Bacon on Sourdough with a poached egg and tomato salsa . It sounded appetising on the menu but that is where it ended. It was cold tomato (tasted tinned) The 'Avocado ' was a squeeze from a tube of green paste and the poached egg was hard....

Great hotel, needs new mattress! Staff are good but not engaged and could be more focused. Nice big rooms and friendly and very clean and comfortable hotel. New mattresses and better staff and the hotel would be first class.

We needed to stay in Deal for one night to attend a funeral and this hotel was ideal. We were driving up from Wales and the hotel ensured our room was ready early so we could change for the event. Our room was spacious, well appointed and clean, with a choice of shower or bath. There is an excellent breakfast...

I stayed in a Superior Single room over the Easter weekend of 2017. The hotel and her staff are welcoming and helpful. As my room was not used the evening before I was fortunate enough to be able to check into my room early. The hotel manager was very friendly and knowledgeable, I felt right at home. The room itself...

As Deal regulars were popped in for a family meal expecting the usual pub style grub that previously was on offer at the Royal. How wrong we were, the new menu is excellent and all the dishes were well prepared, generous potions and tasty. Service could do with being a little quicker, but they were very busy at the time

I had organised a surprise family meal for my parents silver wedding anniversary. The staff were so great at helping me with this and even made name cards with people's orders on. Special mention to jorden who put up with my endless emails and requests and made the evening seamless. The food was nice and of a reasonable price. It...

I recently met to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was not of a good quality....2 of us had prawn cocktail which had a weak vinaigrette instead of a sauce.... the chips were not good and the chicken dish was salty.

The Royal has a wonderful, unique location - the only building on the beach side of the seafront road in Deal, and virtually on the beach itself. That alone should be enough to tempt visitors to stay. Add to that friendly, helpful staff, good, clean, well maintained rooms and public areas, a decent snack and restaurant menu and a nice...

Probably our fifth stay here. It's a great building in a great location right on the beach. However the nicest thing about the hotel is the young, cheerful, helpful staff. We stayed over the Mothers Day weekend, and perhaps unsurprisingly, the restaurant was absolutely rammed all day. However the staff were, as ever, charming, despite having to deal with some...

We walked down a very breezy seafront and were very nearly disappointed as the bar in the Royal was very busy. Our son was visiting and The Royal does a good vegetarian burger which he really enjoyed. Wine so good we had 2 bottles and desert (sharing chocolate sundae) was amazing. Friendly service as usual and altogether a very pleasant...
