Overlooking Ventnor Bay on the most southern tip of the Isle of Wight, the Royal Hotel is set in tranquil gardens. Built in 1832, it is one of the oldest hotels on the island and, with its refined ambiance, has been welcoming the discerning traveller for over 180 years. Each of the 53 rooms has been individually styled with an emphasis on an English country house with a contemporary twist. Guests can enjoy award-winning cuisine in the hotel’s main restaurant, which has achieved 2 AA Rosettes for its excellent food over 15 consecutive years. The bar, the colonial-style conservatory or the terrace are the perfect places to unwind with a pre-dinner drink, the subtropical gardens are ideal for relaxing in, and picturesque cliff-top walks around the surrounding coastline are easily accessible from the hotel.
