Royal Hotel

Poor 2.0
Only demolition could improve it
This hotel is disgusting. Old, dirty, musty, tired, hardest bed ever. Staff try their best to help guests but they can’t disguise their frustration about working in such a dump
Colin, au1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Don’t miss this 70s vintage hotel - it’s wonderful
We love this hotel. It is classic vintage 70 S and an absolute gem. Long may it stay as it is and those people who said it needed modernising or freshening up have no taste. The Royal Palace is a perfect piece of vintage, not hipster but absolutely authentic. If you are interested in design or 20 th century decor and architecture then go to the Royal. Staff helpful, rooms sooo spacious and breakfast is wonderful.

Could be better
Nice and helpful staff. Spacious room and bathroom. Comfortable bed. Bathroom could be more clean. Tub wasn't clean properly, half empty shower gel from previous guests was left on the edge. Few hair left near sink. Receptionist and barman were very helpful and happy to help.
