The Royal Hotel - Ventor- Isle of Wight

About

The seaside resort of Ventnor is a delightful time warp with a host of off-beat arty shops and its own subtropical micro climate. The Royal Hotel, built in 1832 overlooking the Esplanade, complements it to perfection, with solidly traditional values and service. As one of the Island’s most luxurious hotels, the hotel has taken great care to refurbish the interior in a classic British style that guarantees comfort as well as charm.

This historic building has entertained the crowned heads of Europe, and was a favourite destination of Queen Victoria’s whenever she visited Ventnor.

The Royal is the epitome of timeless elegance and shares the rare privilege of being one of only 30 establishments to be listed in every Michelin Guide since it was first published in 1911, and was the first hotel on the Isle of Wight to be awarded a four-star rating.

Dining at The Royal will be the highlight of your stay.

The menu at The Royal reflects the abundance of quality produce harvested from the Isle of Wight’s bountiful coast and countryside. From light lunches to celebratory feasts, The Royal specialises in memorable meals, cooked with flair by accomplished chefs and accompanied by perfectly matched wines and impeccable service.

The Royal kitchen team create sensational modern British dishes using the freshest seasonal produce, including crab and lobster from nearby Ventnor Bay, foraged sea herbs, lamb and beef from Island-based farms and locally grown garlic, tomatoes, asparagus and heritage vegetables.

Passionate about superb seasonal food, The Royal Hotel has earned a reputation for our accomplished modern British cooking, achieving two AA rosettes for food excellence for twenty consecutive years.
