Love it Here

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 2, 2011

Well we walked out of the Rail Station and there it was...the little side entrance I remembered to this old yet elegant hotel. Once called The Railway Hotel we were told, but when you view from the front entrance you know why it is Royal now.

Our rooms are great. Dara5 has a vew of the city wall and the room is light and bright. Mine is good too. I just do not have the view.

Our rooms are quite large.

We each have a bath! Joy oh joy,...a room safe... and internet connection. The latter is a bit of a bore as we have to re log every 1/2 hour if we want it free.

The television is a bit old fashioned but it works.

Unique Quality: We have two options to dine...the more formal setting or bar food. We chose bar food and it was very tasty. There is a very good selection.

The Hotel has beautiful surrounds which are hidden if you enter from the station entrance. The hop on hop off bus stops outside but you can walk into town easily. Everything is so handy.

Seems the hotel is popular with business folk. Prices more expensive mid week.

Directions: Right next door to the train station

Grand Victorian railway hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 27, 2009

To be honest this is not a good choice of hotel.

Typical of the Victorian railway hotels the public areas are on a grand scale while the rooms are small and cramped.

The rooms are not air-conditioned and the 'superior' garden room room we stayed in had no ventilation and was impossibly hot and stuffy. We had to prop the door open to try to get some air into the room.

It was clean, the bathroom was good with adequate toiletries, but there's no fridge.

Staff in the restaurant and bar were as disinterested as any we've ever encountered. Waiting fifteen minutes for coffee with breakfast in the morning is unacceptable! For dinner, not having booked and the restaurant with only three tables occupied, we were told the kitchen may not be able to handle any more customers! In fact eventually we were allowed to eat.

Unique Quality: Conveniently located adjoining the railway station, it has a nice garden area and is a simple walk of a minute or two into the city centre.

Directions: Adjoining the railway station.

If you have some cash to...

by written on August 24, 2002

If you have some cash to splash, and want that little bit extra , the you could worse than the Royal York Hotel at the Railway Station. It is one of these grand old victorian Railway hotels that has not lost its style inside and make syou feel that little bit special.
£ 100 approx.

Try the tourist information centre in the Railway station, about same day availabilty as it has been known to get a room for as low as £55

Unique Quality: Service is special, has fitness room but a fitness complex is opening up this year.
