The Royal & Fortescue Hotel, Boutport Street, Barnstaple, EX31 1HG


Once an ancient coaching inn, called 'The Fortescue Arms', the hotel earned the right to include 'Royal' in its name after the Prince of Wales (later Edward 7th) paid a visit. The 3-star Royal & Fortescue Hotel boasts a restaurant, coffee shop and the brasserie next door which has an amazing, ornate Tudor ceiling. All 49 elegantly-styled and comfortable bedrooms have a television, direct-dial telephone, hairdryer, tea and coffee-making facilities and free Wi-Fi. Guests can enjoy complimentary use of the indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and gym in the leisure club at the hotel's sister property, the Barnstaple Hotel, a 20-minute walk away.
