A historic luxury hotel in a class all of its own

A contemporary boutique hotel 

Once an ancient coaching inn, this hotel retains its historic charm whilst offering all the modern comforts you expect. 

Bang in the centre of Barnstaple, the Royal & Fortescue Hotel is a gem, ideally located for exploring Barnstaple and the surrounding North Devon area. You are just a few steps away from tempting designer shops, the ancient pannier market and the theatre. 

 The welcoming public areas are buzzing with atmosphere, whilst the luxury accommodation is blissfully serene. With a choice of function rooms, the Royal & Fortescue is also perfect for a business event, wedding reception or a special celebration.
