Award Winning Training at The Royal

Built in 1832, The Royal is the Island’s premier four-star hotel and shares the rare privilege of being one of only 30 establishments to be listed in every Michelin Guide since it was first published in 1911. The Royal was also the first hotel on the Island to achieve Four Stars, AA rating and has held 2 AA Rosettes for excellent food for over 20 consecutive years.

"We are extremely proud of all our staff and apprentices" says William Bailey owner of The Royal. "The Royal has very high standards and has held two AA Rosettes for over 20 consecutive years- this is a very high pressured environment and our staff need to demonstrate talent and dedication to have a great career in the hotel industry."



We value and seek to recruit apprentices across all departments of the hotel as we believe learning hands on is the best way. We offer a general hotel management training apprenticeship, chef apprenticeships covering all five sections of the kitchen and a range of other apprenticeships throughout all departments of the hotel.

If you have a vision to embark into a career in hospitality we can help you on your journey and would be delighted to meet you. We have team members right throughout undertaking apprenticeships from those with over 20 years at The Royal and those just starting.
