The Royal Hotel has a natural, sociable atmosphere which is evident most in Quinn?s Bar, where you will settle right into the lively atmosphere, surrounded by local guests and your fellow hotel residents savouring the Craic and a pint or two. Regular live musical entertainment with renowned musicians at the weekend adds to the warm ambience. The Quinn?s Bar serves a Traditional Carvery lunch every weekend, with a Bar Menu offering a variety of sumptuous dishes daily. Additionally, the Heritage Bistro serves sumptuous cuisine with carefully selected and locally produced ingredients, which are second to none and are prepared by the team of exemplary chefs.
The hotel is a traditional, whitewashed building.
Small and quaint.
A good choice of hotel for those seeking nice 3* accommodation on the outskirts of Dublin- Bray is a lovely coastal town. There is also the Merrill Leisure Centre on site: a state of the art fitness and wellbeing facility and is exclusive to members and hotel guests only. With a fully equipped gymnasium including a Kenesis Wall, an indoor heated 14 metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi are just some of the fantastic facilities this leisure centre has to offer. WiFi is complimentary throughout. (GW 06/2012)

We stayed in room 353 which is located at the front of the hotel on the main street,almost above the entrance. It was very noisy with all the commings and goings and Saturday night revellers rolling past until 3am. We asked for a pamphlet/flyer/brochure for Johnnie Fox's Pub from the receptionist who did not understand what a pamphlet,flyer or brochure was and had not heared of Johnnie Fox's pub Possibly the most famous pub in Ireland and just a few miles up the road from the hotel.Most of the staff seemed to have poor English.Check in at 4pm is rather later than most hotels.

As usual, we had a most relaxing, cosy stay at the Royal Hotel and Leisure Centre Bray. The staff were extremely friendly and obliging. Must say there was a brilliant christmas atmosphere about the place. Will be back again!!!!
Hi our stay at the royal in bray was not very enjoyable.
The rooms were very small, the beds were uncomfotable and the lock on our window was broken and right outside the window we had a flat roof so needless to say we were nervous leaving stuff in the room when we went out that evening. The corridors in the hotel were a bit shabby too. the hotel was dissapointing. Also where the room was located in the hotel it was about a mile walk and you would easily get lost finding your room.
