Stayed as a honeymoon night after our wedding to get close to the beach. Location is fantastic and the outside of the hotel looks very grand. Public areas clean and very nice, large bar area although the TV satellite needs to be looked at as there was a big football match on and it constantly froze and was very difficult... More

My wife & I have had a couple of poor experiences in this hotel and it was only due to the fact that the hotel I had booked let us down that we came back - reluctantly. We were expecting the worst but were pleasantly surprised. Service was much improved, Staff were a lot more helpful and overall, things were... More

We booked the 'Royal Bath Hotel' in Bournemouth purely for the location being close to the theatre. It has an excellent location right on the seafront and 2 mins walk from the theatre. This hotel looked very good value for money compared to other hotels in the area so I booked a 'compact' room. Upon arrival it looked very grand... More

I read recent reviews about thus hotel, and considered cancelling as the reviews was bad, but I thought to myself I would go and see it for myself. Anyway depends how fussy you are, yes the building is very old, so does need decorating, but the bed linen was very clean and also the bathroom. All the staff I came... More

We had a great value deal from Groupon including b&b, evening meal, wine and free spa access. Our room faced Bath Rd. But it was quite spacious with large beds, a bit too soft for our taste, ironing board but no safe or fridge. The bathroom was clean and functional and there were signs of wear and tear. The towels... More

SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED BETTER SERVICE FOR THE PRICE WE PAID! SECURE?? On arrival on a Tuesday afternoon, as we were early we asked for reception to store our bags, this was okay'd by an unenthusiastic receptionist who said the porter would store them away. We went off for a few hours, on returning we saw that our bags were still... More

After a brief stay in the Royal Bath, in what I must say was an average room for the price, we was charged £99.00 for someone else's room in error! It took 2 days, at least 7 phone calls to rectify the situation and receive our refund. The manager, who I asked to speak to on seven occasions, still has... More
