Not so Royal

Pros: Nothing
Cons: WiFi Decor
A once grand and regal hotel that is looking very tired and dated. Although the room was clean it was very minimalist with no home comforts. The decor in the hotel was way below the standard one would expect, wood chip wallpaper covered on emulsion with numerous rips and stains, threadbare carpets completed the look of austerity. The ceilings had damp patches and the walls had so many cracks in them I thought I was in an earthquake zone. Although there is WiFi available this is only available in the lobby and not in the rooms, and even then the signal is so week you might as well use a carrier pigeon to send a message in 2018 you'd expect better than that. Breakfast is at 7.45, which is fine, but expect to fight your way through the coach-load of pensioners who must have their breakfast as soon as possible because they have to be somewhere for 10am, and don't sit on one of the many tables that haven't been allocated to you. One morning I was sat at a one of the many vacant tables, no coach party on that day and only a handful of guests at the other 50 tables, and asked to move because i wasn't at my allocated table. I moved, as I hadn't yet attended the buffet counter, and watched as the table remained empty throughout my breakfast. when I challenged the reason I had to move no one could explain why. Bizarre to say the least. In short the hotel that was once the jewel in the crown of Whitby now has the lustre of a pebble washed up on her beautiful beach.
