A quiet and relaxing hotel, The Royal is set near the river within a five-minute walk of the busy town centre and the quay. The bright, well maintained public areas retain much of the charm and style of the hotel's 17th-century origins, particularly in the wood-panelled Kingsley Suite. Bedrooms are well equipped and comfortable. Meals and lounge snacks are delicious.
