It's easy to see why this hotel is rated number 1 by tripadvisor and Expedia. Welcome drink on check in. Smooth check in and keys ready and bags up in the room before you've even finished your drink. No squirming over a credit card to leave on file. They know you will settle on check out so no need to be pedantic and swipe a card twice. The entire hotel including the three restaurants (see review of the Highlander) all allow you to sign food and drink to the room. The Camelot Spa also allows you to sign to the room so there is no need to carry a wallet around for the duration of your stay. We had booked into the Heritage rooms. Room 10 was the furtherest away from the stairs but also quite near the Pyjama lounge (which can be a little noisy if neighboirs are being selfish on returning from an evening out). The room itself was done perfectly with an immense bathroom with bath and shower. The main area had instant as well as Nespresso type coffee machine. We had a private balcony which we watched the sunrise every morning. Our family stayed on the standard rooms and I can highly recommend those also. They only have showers. But they also have semi private patios facing the gardens of the hotel and the sunset views. I can't speak highly enough about this hotel, we travel often and I'm often hyper aware of hotel shortcomings. The Royal is superb. Do yourself a Favour. Contact the Camelot Spa and book a sundowner Hot Tub hour, get a bottle of bubbly and enjoy the evening. We sat in the rain and it was marvelous. We will return for sure.
