“It’s good. Very good! It is a 600 miles round trip for me to drive to Ventnor and The Royal from home. Third time now I have done it, must be mad, but I will do it again. Stayed for the Gastronomic weekend and enjoyed every bit of it. Impeccable, friendly service, comfortable room and great food. Even met some lovely people. No need to say more.”
