Situated at the very heart of Dartmouth, The Royal Castle Hotel enjoys a landmark location and fantastic views over the river Dart. This award-winning 17th century hotel is an iconic and unmissable building and in the perfect place to enjoy everything that South Devon has to offer.

Planned Refurbishment

The Royal Castle will be temporarily closing, for interior decoration and maintenance work, from Sunday 4th October. We’ll be reopening our doors again on Thursday 22nd October.


Our two downstairs bars and first floor restaurant will be getting a fresh lick of paint and undergoing some sensitive restoration, to give them a new lease of life and ensure that our guests continue to have the best possible experience.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We’ll miss our locals and visitors to Dartmouth. Rest assured, the unique and historic character of the hotel – including our bars and restaurant - will be fully protected and waiting to welcome you back in a few weeks.


If you’re planning to visit us when we reopen, please call our central reservations team to book a room: 0345 241 1133.


See you soon!
