The Royal Hotel, a listed property built in 1791 as former  haunt of Royalty and Aristocracy, is ready to welcome you. Blending the original structure’s rich history with 21st-Century comforts, the sympathetic restoration of this jewel in the crown of Southend-on-Sea now comprises a ground floor cocktail bar and lounge along with the Ballroom situated in the first floor.

The Royal Hotel takes customer Deposits, in some circumstances, to secure table bookings for meals or for certain events. Should a customer choose either to cancel in advance or not attend, regardless of the reason, it is the Royal Hotel’s policy that the deposit or full payment is not refunded.


Also, a customer deposit cannot be transferred to offset part of another customer’s bill.


However, completely at management’s discretion, deposits on tables for meals may be transferred to reserve a similar booking at a later date if cancelled with more than 30 days notice. Tickets purchased for an event are non-refundable if the customer cancels or does not attend. If a customer chooses to cancel their event due to government restrictions, (ie. wearing masks) but the event can still take place, deposits or any monies paid cannot be refunded.


Should The Royal Hotel close due to Government lockdown, bookings can be moved to a later date or refunded in vouchers.
