Firstly I can say all of the staff were friendly and helpful The room was clean and more than adequate Sadly the food was a huge disappointment I appreciate it is not easy to cater for large numbers but the hotel accommodates a large number of people and apparently another seventy rooms are being added The food was not of...

I stayed for three nights as one of a large group visiting Bournemouth for a conference in the Pavilion Theatre just across the road so the location was excellent. I had single occupancy of a twin room with a sea view, which was more than adequate whilst not luxurious. The bed was very sof and I didn't sleep well and... More

Mixed service levels from staff, some good others poor to bad. Was okay for one night but would seriously consider another option for longer. Food was okay and the beds comfortable but these can be achieved in most places.

During the buffet our plates were cleared before we'd even finished our mouthfuls. When we pointed this out to the manager we were tutted at and told that they were just efficient. No apology. Rooms all unbearably hot. Charged for swimming. Charged for towels. Charged for lockers. Bedroom windows dirty and didn't open. No outside line on phones. No wi-fi.... More

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at The Royal Bath Hotel. When we first arrived there was a queue to check in, purely because of lots of guests arriving at the same time. The two male receptionists were consistently working hard to deal with guests. Our receptionist apologised for the wait and was very helpful. On reaching... More

The decor and furniture were well worn and dated, (nothing like the website) the sink in the bathroom had a big crack in it, the bath was chipped and the not so white silicon around the bath was black and...

Myself and my partner decided to get away for one night and booked a lux double room, on arrival we didn't have a clue where too park as the hotel was situated on the main road on a roundabout with a queue of cars already outside, just next door is a big public car park but as it was a... More

This was obviously once a very a very prestigious Victorian Hotel now in need of a little TLC but still maintaining some style and a sense of opulence due to the sympathetic décor and grande fittings. The on-site Parking is quite expensive (£25 per day) so we opted for the nearby Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) council-run multi-storey which charges £12.50... More
