Welcoming staff, tasty food on offer.
The staff is reputably helpful and welcoming, and those travelling with dogs said they were able to stay in certain rooms here. Guests thought there to be a good standard of tasty food on offer across all meals, even if a few people thought the prices were a touch high.
Clean, comfy and good value.
Some of those who stayed mentioned they thought the hotel offered value for money, with clean and comfortable rooms with all the necessary amenities, free parking, and a smidgen of older style charm. Furthermore, the hotel is said to boast some wonderful views.
A bit dated all round.
Those who stayed here were generally in agreement that the hotel decor was dated, and could use freshening up, or at least a fresh lick of paint. The bar was thought to be looking particularly tired, and the occasional room maintenance issue was also encountered.
Wi-Fi only in public areas.
A handful of Royal Goat guests were unhappy to find that Wi-Fi was not available in the rooms, and only accessible in public areas. However, this did not seem to be an issue for the vast majority of people.
Bar and food service closed early.
The bar and food service here reportedly closes rather early, so to avoid disappointment, make sure you check the opening times in advance if you are arriving late and are in need of a bite to eat, or a nightcap refreshment.
