The Royal Wells Hotel
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

My assessment is based on the deal we had for the 2 nights we were there.
Unsure what the usual rates are, but we got a two night stay for £150. This included breakfast and one evening meal. It’s a large hotel with easy access to town centre (Pantiles and all that) However, it is hilly and if one is dodgy in the feet department you may want to consider a cab back. That’s the bit all uphill.
The included dinner (3 Courses, but not drinks) was very good, choosing of the main menu. I opted for the crab pate, lamb and cheesecake. A very good standard with lamb being pink
how I like it. I was not asked so if you want the lamb cooked through then you had better mention it on ordering.
Our very comfortable room (25) was spacious with a huge bed. One gripe of mine are the plastic cups they put in the bathrooms. They are not needed by me or the planet. Real glasses are in the main room - use those.
Parking is on a first come first served basis and the car park was smaller than I expected.
Breakfast menu extensive also very good quality.

All staff were very pleasant and efficient.
All in all a great 2 day break. Would recommend Scotney Castle for a visit and Hever Castle both small car journeys away.

Positive: On-Site Parking. Friendly and helpful Staff. Lift to all floors.
Room 16 on 3rd Floor, fairly small Double room, relatively quiet, great view, clean linen, shower-room facilities good, quality Gilchrist & Soames products supplied.
Tea and coffee facilities in room along with bottled water replenished daily.

Slightly Negative: A tale of Two Breakfasts ....... English Breakfast on morning 1 was good, not quite as happy with slightly dry Kippers or the attempt at American Pancakes on morning 2.

Room Tip: Top (3rd) Floor less affected by noise from functions being held below

On arriving we were shown to our lovely room..recently refurbished it was modern..clean and spacious.
The only comment I would make is the pub outside my window needs to clean it's roof up as the washing machine and cigarette butts were not a very nice view.
Breakfast was lovely and we loved the choice...unfortunatley the SOME of the young staff were quite lazy and wanted to spend as little time in the restaurant as possible and plenty of time at the rear end of the bar longing about and checking there phones
Saturday night I was glad I had not booked in the restaurant as the hotel had some sort of function which didn't bother me at all..what did bother me is the amount of young children that thought the hotel was a playground ..up the stairs along the corridors and the bar area was like a creche...whilst the parents did nothing and nor did the hotel staff..a shame as several people left the bar to go else where
Hotel very good ..
But when there is a function the hotel need to understand they also have paying guests

We really enjoyed our one night stay. Firstly, the staff at reception were hugely helpful and accommodating, switching the double room that we had originally booked to a) a twin room and b) one with a bath, at the last minute, with no dramas. For the rest of the stay, everyone working there was professional, attentive, and cheerful. The hotel itself was impressive, our room was beautiful, and the food we ate in the hotel restaurant for dinner and breakfast was top-notch. Many thanks.

We found a good deal for this hotel and went for a midweek break. On arrival the staff were friendly and accommodating and we were lucky enough to get in our room a little earlier. We found the room very clean with bottled water supplied which was replenished daily and the evening meal in the restaurant which came with the deal was very tasty. It's a short stroll into town, downhill going uphill(not too steep) coming back, there are buses that run by. I think it's a good place to stay if you want to visit Royal Tunbridge Wells.
