I went with my partner we booked the britania hotel only to be turned away and told we were actually staying at the royal bath hotel because it was part of the britania group. First impressions the hotel looked amazing and very well presented, then in reception it was full of frustrated people, "free parking on site" WRONG we then... More

The queues at the reception to book in were unacceptable. I paid in advance for Dinner but on arrival was told this only gets you a Buffet Meal and to eat in the main Restaurant would be an extra charge. The Food in the Buffet was awful probably not fit for Human Consumption. Although I had paid for Dinner throughout... More

My Daughter had booked her Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception at the The Royal Bath. What a great day and evening we had. Started with a reception in the beautifully laid out and colourful Secret Garden. The Breakfast was a complete success, the preparation, the food coupled with the helpful staff. Food was very good and the meal was all... More

If I only new this was part of Britannia group, then I would have not booked this. Actually was my company who booked this, so I kind of forgive myself for staying in such establishment Apparently this hotel used to be the cream the la cream in Bournemouth way back in 1900 or so and unfortunately for us nothing has...

I stayed here for 3 nights as the usual hotel I use was fully booked. I will not be staying here again out of choice. The hotel is a very old hotel, probably the oldest in Bournemouth, anbd although has distinguished heritage could do with a bit of a face-lift. Miles of corridors, carpets are going threadbare throughout the hotel,... More

Excellent room with a wonderful view - lots of space, spotlessly clean. Cannot comment on food as did not eat in. Very good position for all the amenities of Bournemouth. Lots of goo restaurants nearby, close to theatres, cinemas, shops, buses. Had some difficulty finding the room in the first place but thereafter OK.

Very good hotel with one exception. Not good for those with limited mobility. Needing more hand rails at front entrance. I was lucky in that I got a room with wet room. If I had to stay where my friends were it would have been impossible. Glad I didn't have to use wheelchair, is was bad enough with walking aid.... More

I have always fancied staying at this hotel, one of the oldest if not THE oldest hotel in Bournemouth. I used to travel to the town regularly in my professional life. The completion of a partial refurbishment and rebuild of an Academy was the reason for this visit. A royal visitor was to be the special guest to mark the... More

We have been to this hotel a couple of times now and hope to return again soon. The staff are really friendly and the cream teas are amazing. On our second visit we upgraded to a sea view room, it was such a good decision, overlooking the beach and pier, with a really good view of the gardens. The food... More
