The Royal Norfolk Hotel is situated in a delightfully sunny spot on the sea front with extensive lawns and superb Channel views. This exceptional Georgian building dates from the 1830s and was visited by the Emperor Napoleon III of France and various descendants of Queen Victoria. The hotel also has its own large Car Park. ****Free Wi-Fi in public areas **** Part of the Leisureplex Hotel Group. Bognor Regis has been a seaside fishing settlement (and occasionally also a base for smuggling operations) since Anglo Saxon times. It became a fashionable resort in the reign of George III and has been frequented by royalty on numerous occasions. Visitors to the Royal Norfolk Hotel have included the Emperor Napoleon III of France and various members of Queen Victoria's family. The resort gained the title Bognor Regis after George V stayed here to convalesce after an illness in 1929. The resort is quite flat and has an excellent promenade walk. There is a pier and a delightful park, Hotham Park, which boasts a narrow guage railway, putting green, crazy golf, tennis court and boating lake. On the beach between Bognor Regis and Aldwick lies the wreck of a floating pontoon - part of the Mulberry Harbour which was destined to be towed across to Normandy on D-Day June 6, 1944, but did not make it to Normandy and was washed up on the beach shortly after D-Day. It is clearly visible at low tide throughout the year. Bognor is a seaside town which has some good shops and a theatre. The excursion possibilities are numerous, with numerous stately homes and several important towns and cities, as well as some smaller seaside towns, within easy reach. The beach is predominantly pebbly but the water is clean and the quality of the light often remarkable. Inland the scenery is quintessentially English with the splendour of the South Downs, England's newest National Park, very close at hand. The Royal Norfolk Hotel is a short walk from the pier and shops. All 60 rooms are centrally heated with private bath or shower and WC, television, hair dryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The Superior Rooms all overlook the garden and the sea. There is an attractive cocktail bar with television, a sea view restaurant, a relaxing lounge overlooking the garden and a bar lounge with small dance floor. Live Entertainment is provided at least 4 nights a week in our Goodwood Ballroom. You can relax with a drink on the outside wooden deck patio or our extensive garden overlooking the sea. Lift serves most rooms (some rooms accessed via several stairs). There is parking available for 25 Cars and 2 Coaches. IMPORTANT CLIENT INFORMATION.
