Hotel New Royal (Whitley Bay, United Kingdom)


Hotel New Royal (Whitley Bay, United Kingdom)

About New Royal

Situated in the perfect spot, right on the promenade, the Royal Hotel offers boutique accommodation and a host of dining options in the very heart of Whitley Bay. The rooms are bright and cheerful, and feature en-suite bathrooms, flat screen TV’s and alarm clocks. Reception is open limited hours and can assist with local information and restaurant reservations in its seafront complex. Wi-Fi is free of charge and available throughout the property. The Royal is perhaps better known for its restaurants than its accommodation. Michilino’s offers delectable Italian food, while Noir is the spot for comprehensive afternoon tea’s and later on tapas. A new gastro pub is opening soon and will proudly serve British food. The main attraction is surely the promenade and the lovely beach out front. There are many attractions on this stretch, but families will certainly not want to miss the Blue Reef Aquarium, just 1.5 miles to the south.

Positive Reviews


Great location on the promenade

Of course it had to be the Royal's position right on the promenade that guests most appreciated. In summer they found it convenient for when they headed for the beach out front, and at any time of year the promenade made for a lovely seaside walking route.


Very good breakfast buffet

While there were compliments for all the meals offered by the hotel and its associated restaurants, it seems that it was the breakfast that most impressed the guests. It was described as a very comprehensive buffet, with plenty of hot foods include and it was mentioned that all but the most picky of eaters would find something they really liked.


Staff eager to help

Again and again guests complimented the staff for their excellent sense of hospitality. They were said to be welcoming and friendly, but more than this, very eager to help their guests in any way they could.

Negative Reviews


Rooms looking a bit tired

A good many guests commented that the rooms were beginning to show their age. The fabrics seemed a bit frayed, and the decor looked just a little out of date. They believed that they would benefit a great deal from even a fairly minor refresh.


No lift

Guests mention that there is no lift no the building, and really no way to avoid the stairs with ramps and so on. While this was not an issue for most, those with mobility issues should take note.


Difficult parking in the area

It seems there is either no on-site parking, or very little indeed. This, taken to together with the popularity of the area in summer, meant that some guests had a hard time finding parking reasonably close to the hotel.
