Rich naval history

History and heritage isn’t just confined to our ales though. From the moment you set foot in The Royal Hotel, Deal’s rich naval history echoes throughout, reflected in the traditional style of the bar and the attractive themed décor of the bedrooms.

Frequently visited by Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton in years gone by, the hotel has long lived up to the town’s ‘Befriend a stranger’ motto - and we look forward to extending a warm welcome your way soon.
