Before I write this.. some context. My stay in Bournemouth was last minute so perhaps my late booking was a low priority for the Royal Bath. I stayed in the Menzies East Cliff the night before, had a great room and pleasant stay but sadly the Royal Bath let me down in numerous ways. 1) Being placed in room 0125... More

I have been staying at the Royal Bath for business regularly since February to April this year. There are two main reasons why I chose this hotel; it is all about Location and their Gym. The Royal Bath is next to the Bournemouth Pier and it is easy to walk around. The Gym and spa facilities used to be free... More

We stayed for one night, a Saturday. On arrival we checked in and was allocated a room, no 308. We really could have used a map to find the room as it was a long way from reception. We got to the room and guess what? the room key had not been activated!!! So off I go back to reception... More

The rooms were very good , hotel clean and tidy, gardens were lovely and the pool, sauna, steam room etc was also very good. We had bed breakfast... More

I checked in on Saturday 12th April at around 5.30pm. There were six receptionists standing around having a chat and continued even when I was standing at the desk. The room was tiny, unclean, and very noisy as all the walls were stud walls so you could practically hear the person next door breathing. The staff were unhelpful and clueless... More

Rooms tired but beds very comfy, we had a suite so had 2 adjoining rooms which were of good size - windows blown though so couldn't see out of most of them and huge crack in one. Shower was laughably bad. We had dinner in Oscar's restaurant. Service was amazingly slow - we were in there for over 2 hours... More

On arrival the hotel couldn't find my reservation so I had to wait 45 minutes for them to find it, in that time I heard guest after guest complain on everything from a room with no windows to leaking taps and refusing to eat in the hotel as their experience was so bad. The staff seem utterly clueless and the... More

Husband and I had 4 nights at the Royal Bath to unwind following our daughters wedding. We had a problem with the windows not closing when we arrived and were immediately moved to a new room which had views over the gardens and to the sea. Clean room, good breakfast, helpful staff, yes its a bit tired round the edges... More
