If you think that there is a mistake in your reservation or if you require any changes to a confirmed reservation, please contact us to discuss.

Unfortunately, due to our prominent position, we don’t have a car park at the Royal Castle, but you are able to stop outside the front of the property to unload and check in. There is a car park close by, but the spaces are generally used for short stays during the high season.

Alternatively, there are two car parks in Dartmouth – Mayors Avenue (TQ6 9LW) and Dartmouth Castle (TQ6 9NF) which charge £3 for overnight stays. During the summer season, the best option is to use Dartmouth’s park and ride which is located at the top of the town. For more information, please visit www.southhams.gov.uk

We do not have any EV charge points but you can find out more info here about the closest to us. 

All our rooms are complete with luxury toiletries, tea and coffee-making facilities, free WiFi and a hairdryer.

Please note, air conditioning is only available in select rooms. 

We welcome well-behaved dogs into a few, specially selected, rooms at an additional charge of £15 per night, per dog. If you are looking at bringing your dog with you please give us a call to ensure you are allocated the correct room.

We ask that dogs are not left on their own in the rooms. Your dog is allowed with you in all areas of the Royal Castle.

Included in this additional rate you will find our 'Proper Dog' hamper complete with tennis ball, Forthglade treats, biodegradable poo-bags, a can of our 'Proper Dog' pooch-friendly beer and Proper Job beer for you to take away with you.
