A charming Bideford hotel that is steeped in history

With an atmosphere and character that is quite unique, parts of The Royal Hotel date back to the 17th century. The sensational Kingsley Room still has its original pine panelling and magnificent ornate ceiling.

With its pretty riverside setting, the Royal makes a wonderful base from which to explore all the delights of North Devon. We are literally on the Tarka Trail making us the perfect location for walkers and cyclists or take a short walk over the bridge into Bideford to catch the MS Oldenburg to explore the National Trust's unspoilt Lundy Island. 

Add to this our legendary service and mouth-watering cuisine and you have all the ingredients for a break that is truly memorable.
