Occupying a spectacular position by Dartmouth harbour and the River Dart, right in the heart of the old town with its picturesque cobbled streets, and surrounded by amazing nautical history, this venue exudes class and authenticity. Their friendly and efficient hospitality team are on hand to cater for all your heart's desires, pulling out all the stops to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

This iconic and unmistakable 17th-century waterfront building presents the perfect venue to revel in everything that the ancient town of Dartmouth has to offer.

Formerly a coaching inn, The Royal Castle Hotel is right on Dartmouth's quayside and a great place to unwind and relax. Special events are held regularly such as live music in the harbour bar every week, and the hotel is something of a social hub both in and out of the holiday season. Weddings frequently feature in the hotel calendar, and it has proved a popular venue for local couples.
