          The fact that they could cope with my arrival at 230 in the morning off the ferry.

          Extremely warm rooms - stuffy

        • Older travelers

          The staff could not have been more helpful. The location opposite the castle was good and central to the town.

        • Single
          6.6

          1. The Towels. 2. breakfast served to the room (£3.00 extra). Staff have friendly attitude.

          Room with view over carpark - and noise of kitchen vent.Grubby common areas and stairways.Food relatively pricey - cooking OK but unremarkable. Only has a bar with restuarant tables and a restuarant, there is no lounge area to sit and relax in the evening. Its a bit B+ - OK but not brilliant.

          An excellent location in the centre of Stornaway. Views from the bedrooms are lovely. Although I only had breakfast I heard others talking about the quality of the food on the dinner menu and I noticed that it attracted outsiders

          Perhaps in need of some refurbishment throughout. Appeared a little grubby in places and the pillows were very hard!

        • Older travelers

          The attentiveness, support, cheerful and helpful service offered by the staff and the excellence of the food, albeit lack of local kippers!

        • Single
          7.0

          Standard of cuisine very good

          Constant humming of machinery outside window of Room No.10. A good night's sleep was impossible.

          Frfiendly staff

          Rate was absolutely overprized compared to many other hotels.

          It was very central.and food good but pricey.

          It was very expensive for what you get, have stayed in much better for half the price and even less in country wide hotel chains. The room I had was next to a duct system that was so noisy I had to turn the TV way up to hear it, the fan with-in the duct did not go off until late in the evening about 10.00pm approximately, my room was not cleaned on second night and tea tray not filled, at price I was paying would say this was scandalous, also very poor parking only enough for about 6/7 cars and some of these spaces taken up by staff.

          When I arrived they did not have my booking logged but the girl on reception very politely sorted out the problem.

        • Older travelers

          Right on the harbour front so very convenient. The HS1 Cafe Bar was great for food and drink during the day. Car Park at rear to hotel was handy.

          The bedroom was quite cold - if it hadn't been for a back up plug in radiator it would have been worse. No heat of any kind in the bathroom so showers need to be taken very quickly!

        • Single

          Evening meal was good.

          At £92 for the smallest single I have ever stayed in for b+b this hotel is well overpriced. It's very tired and needs a facelift. Bathroom and facilities are very poor. In fairness the restaurant was not bad and my evening meal was good. I stayed at 4 hotels on the islands during my week there. The other 3 were to a much higher standard and all were under £60. The Royal needs to rethink its positioning and prices.I Will not return.

        • Single

          I have stayed fve times and the location and food are excellent

          This was my fifth stay and first time in a back facing room (room 10) and a totally different experience to the front rooms. Noises from staff using the recylcing bins until 12.30am and from the heating plant. Feel these rooms should be discounted as marred the experience as difficult to sleep.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Lovely room. Very friendly staff. Great food.

          Rather pricey. Small carpark. Difficult to locate hotel in the dark as there was scaffolding obstructing the sign and when I tried to phone the hotel to check the location the phone was continuously engaged.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Very good food, nice ambiance in both restaurants, very helpful and friendly staff that "went the extra mile" for us.

        • Single
          7.8

          Friendly welcome, attentive, felt they were grateful I had chosen to stay there

          A bit noisy (cars on the street outside)
