Uniqueness in the heart of Dartmouth Feb 28, 2012
I'm pretty much staying here once a week at the minute for business reasons so I figured I'd review it. Right in the middle of the harbour in the picturesque Devon town of Dartmouth, the Royal Castle is the obvious place to stay, even if at £100 a night it is maybe a little expensive (though that may be reflective of Dartmouth, to be fair).

It's got 29 individually unique rooms (no two rooms are the same) all of which come with a double bed and various amenities. The risk here is that some rooms are notably better than others so try and get one facing the harbour or the inside rather than one at the back as the ventalation can be a bit noisy (its an old buildings, after all). But if you get one of the better ones, its a good deal. The place is set out like an old manor house and the two bars downstairs are also open to locals. One is themed as a country pub, the other as a more modern bar. There is also a more fancy resturant which is used as the breakfast room in the mornings that overlooks the harbour.

The staff can arrange parking for you if you are in Dartmouth during the months you have to pay for parking (May-September) but their carpark is a fair way away. The staff are generally fantastic and the food is good as is the selection of local ales. The food caters from general gastro meals to slightly more refined tastes.

On the whole, its a good place to stay and would get top ratings if it was £80 per night rather than £100 which, for a building so old that the floors are uneven, seems a bit much. Still, I keep going back so there must be something to say for it!

Royal Castle Hotel Overview

Dartmouth with its cobbled streets, intriguing shops and world famous restaurants and bars make for a magical stay any time of the year. The award winning 17th Century Royal Castle Hotel in Dartmouth is privately owned and perfectly located in the very heart of Dartmouth overlooking the harbour and romantic River Dart. We provide a fantastic base from which to experience this amazing part of South Devon. Each of our twenty five unique bedrooms possesses those finishing touches that we hope will make your stay a very memorable one. All our bedrooms have en suite bathroom or shower, telephone, tea and coffee making facilities along with flat screen television and radio. Please note however that all bedrooms start on the second floor and unfortunately we do not have a lift. All the rooms are non-smoking. The Royal Castle Hotel has a river view, stylish and relaxed Grill Room restaurant with delicious food made from the best and freshest local produce. We offer two bars: our contemporary Harbour bar and our more traditional Galleon bar. Both have real open log fire's burning in the winter.
