Tripadvisor Review – May 2011

February 24, 2015


Had a room on the 4th floor overlooking Liberation Sq and the Weighbridge and were fortunate enough to be there for the Liberation Day celebrations which were absolutely brilliant. Had a superb view of everything from our balcony. The choirs, bands, parades, liberation vehicles and vintage cars were all first class.

Our room was superb, large bedroom, bath and separate shower, two TVs (lounge and bathroom), large balcony with table and chairs, minibar, tea and coffee facilities (replenished twice per day), turn down service – everything you needed was there! We did not see/use the spa and pool as we were too busy exploring the island but other guest remarked on how good these were.

The hotel was exceptionally clean and the food in all three restaurants (Cabin, Sirocco and Zephyr) was first class. Lazy Jack was another bar with superb lounge area. Breakfast was served in the Sirocco and you could choose to eat in the restaurant or on the terrace – excellent, and with a wide range of food available. Chef always on hand to cook omlettes and fresh eggs.

The staff were extremely courteous and nothing was too much trouble.. The receptionist even smiled when we told her that we had spilt a full glass of red wine over the carpet! “Accidents happen” was her response.

We cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel. My husband has travelled the world, staying in many different hotels and he said this is certainly the best he has stayed in with respect to cleanliness and service.

Like many other city hotels, the Royal Yacht does not have a car park, however, it is only a few minutes walk away (uphill).
