Staff here excellent, nothing too much trouble. Food, we had an evening meal, was excellent. Breakfast was excellent quality and plenty of choice. Rooms were well presented and spotlessly clean. Bedding and shower towels crisp and spotless.

Close to amenities. Two parking areas, one next to the hotel. We did not eat here, but the room was quiet, large, with a comfortable bed. The staff were friendly.We had stopped over to complete the Bideford 10 race, and will use the Royal Hotel again next year.
