Founded in 1832, The Royal is one of the oldest hotels on the Isle of Wight, and still one of its finest. Originally built as a coaching inn called Fishers Hotel, it became known as The Royal Hotel after enjoying Queen Victoria's patronage.
Steeped in history yet offering every modern comfort, The Royal Hotel has been an irresistible destination for the discerning traveller for the last 180 years.
Dining at The Royal will be a highlight of your stay on the Isle of Wight. The Royal Hotel has achieved 2 AA Rosettes for excellent food for over 18 consecutive years and has appeared in every Michelin Good Food Guide since it's inception.
Whether enjoying a light lunch in our beautiful conservatory or an intimate dinner for two in our elegant, lofty Restaurant, you will feast on exquisite local food, carefully matched wines and enjoy some well-deserved pampering.Find out more
"We are extremely proud of all our staff and apprentices" says William Bailey owner of The Royal. "The Royal has very high standards and has held two AA Rosettes for over 20 consecutive years - this is a very high pressured environment and our staff need to demonstrate talent and dedication to have a great career in the hotel industry.”
Our Royal Rib gives everyone an exhilarating experience whilst gliding over the crest of the waves with a Three Hundred horsepower engine. It is simply one of those boats that you will want to experience.
The Rib can be chartered by the day although you are welcome to use the boats for as little or as much of the day as you choose. The skipper, boat and unlimited fuel are included.
