The Royal Hotel overview
The Royal is a beautiful Georgian hotel dating back to the 18th century that’s ideally located on the Deal seafront and echoes the town’s rich naval history throughout. Lord Nelson, the inspirational Admiral in the British Navy, and Lady Hamilton frequently visited The Royal Hotel in years gone by.
Once the busiest port in England and now a charming seaside resort with quaint streets and historic buildings, Deal is a great base from which to play the three past and present Open Championship courses in this area of Royal St George’s, Prince’s and Royal Cinque Ports.
The Royal Hotel offers a great choice of different sized guestrooms ranging from standard doubles to family rooms and even ‘feature’ rooms that have fantastic sea views from their private balconies. All combine historic charm with a coastal style and come complete with modern conveniences.
