Royal Beach Hotel Exterior


Picture yourself in a wonderful Victorian hotel enjoying panoramic views over the Solent. Standing proudly on the seafront at Southsea since 1866, it evokes an authentic feeling of bygone days.

Magnificent chandeliers, grand staircases, seafaring memorabilia, enchanting restaurants, two lifts and a relaxing sea view lounge to wind away the hours.

124 recently refurbished bedrooms including 48 sea view rooms

Free Wi-Fi in all rooms

Three suites licensed for Wedding Civil Ceremonies

Wedding Packages starting from £4,195

4 excellent conference suites accommodating 10 – 250 delegates

5 function suites (max 300)

A la carte restaurant and bar menu available

Built in 1866 a few steps away from the sea, and advertised as a ‘visitor paradise’ this carefully restored Victorian hotel retains its period elegance but offers all the modern comforts.

With 124 spacious and comfortable fully equipped en-suite bedrooms, extensive conference and banqueting facilities and friendly but professional service, the hotel is ideal for business or pleasure.

All rooms have satellite television and, for a small supplement, front facing rooms offer superb views across the Solent. The Lounge Bar is open to non-residents for all-day dining and the restaurant is open for dinner Monday to Sunday and for Sunday Lunch.

The hotel is conveniently close to all key attractions, including the Historic Dockyard (for HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860 and the Mary Rose), Gunwharf Quays (for shopping and leisure), and the Spinnaker Tower. It is also situated close to ferries for the continent and the Isle of Wight.
