Lovely old Hotel in the heart of Barnstaple, everything was in easy walking distance. Shops, Castle Centre, Museum & River Taw all on your doorstep. Great friendly staff, comfy bed and all at a great price. Only stayed the one night B&B at the Royal & Fortescue but will be back for longer next time.

A nice traditional hotel, attentive staff, spotlessly clean room. Most factors of the Royal & Fortescue were of high standard though the breakfast didn’t taste spectacular, could do with a few more options. Location is ideal, king-size bed very comfy. Overall, a lot of perks and a couple of areas of improvement. Good value for money. Would probably re-visit.

Booked to stay here for a couple of nights recently, it’s a nice hotel and ideally located in the heart of town. The room was comfy but a bit on the small side and plenty of tea and coffee provided.
