"The Royal is a handsome, four-storey building fronted by a pretty wrought iron veranda that overlooks Ventnor’s Esplanade and the English Channel." The Telegraph Travel
Surrounded by cliffs and windswept headlands forming an especially beautiful part of the Coastal footpath and English Channel, Ventnor possesses an unrivalled and enduring beauty.
The Royal Hotel - named "Ultimate Hotel Experience" by Red Funnel - is nestled into exotic south facing gardens overlooking Ventnor's stunning coastline. For the best al fresco views, head for the clifftop Riviera Terrace. The nearby beach, heated outdoor pool and daily high tea make this a great choice for families.
Our 51 bedrooms are each decorated with flair in fine fabrics and furnishings to guarantee our guests have the most comfortable experience possible.
The Royal Hotel has achieved 2 AA Rosettes for excellent food for over 25 consecutive years and has appeared in every Michelin Good Food Guide since it's inception.
“Set within an elegant hotel is this fittingly grand dining room hung with portraits and chandeliers. Good value light lunches are followed by more sophisticated dinners where old favourites are offered alongside more modern dishes.” - MICHELIN guide inspectors 2017
