Wheelchair accessible

Overlooking the marina and steam clock, The Royal Yacht is thought to be the oldest established hotel on the island. Although it has a long history, it is very much a 21st-century hotel, with state-of-the-art technology in all the bedrooms and the two penthouse suites. There is a range of impressive dining options to suit all tastes including the award-winning Sirocco restaurant and all-day menus in Zephyr. In addition, there is a choice of bars, a luxury spa with an indoor pool and gym and conference facilities.
