With some sections dating all the way back to the 17th century, The Royal Hotels unique and charming atmosphere brings it to life. The Kingsley Room, the most historic part of the hotel, still retains its ornate pine panelling and magnificently detailed ceiling.
The riverside setting means as well as some beautiful views, The Royal is a delightful base to explore North Devon from. We are lucky enough to be on the Tarka Trail, which is perfect for walkers or cyclists as the trail wraps around the scenic Taw River. Alternatively, cross Bideford Long Bridge, one of the oldest in the UK, and catch the MS Oldenburg to Lundy Island, an unspoilt National Trust treasure.
This excellent location is perfectly complemented by beautiful rooms, legendary service and mouth-watering cuisine, meaning a trip here will be memorable.
