Am I the only one to remember as a child, walking from a tiny caravan with no water, toilet or electricity, to a resort centre and passing a magnificent seafront hotel and thinking the people we could see inside were either rich or ''posh''? As our holidays were always wonderful, it was not envy but curiosity about things that were unobtainable so of no real significance. Approaching the Royal Beach brought back those feelings more than anywhere else we have stayed. The blindingly white paint (the sun helped) and the glossy black of the ''faux'' balconies gave us a childlike feeling as we went into reception that turned into adult full joy as we were shown to the biggest room we have ever had and joy of joys, a wet room! The Hotel has managed to retain all of it's aged character with all the modern amenities. The lounge was cosy and comfortable with a decent wine list at reasonable prices. The dining rooms were magnificently appointed and the food was very good and with several menus plus specials, varied enough for anybody. As we have come to expect at B.W., the staff were ''above and beyond'' All in all (sorry for the cliché) it was all a child could imagine and all we hoped when we booked. Thank you Royal Beach and as Arnie would say ''I'll be back!'' Well set up inside for disabled but could not see a way in for wheelchairs on front or back entrance steps.
