A once Grand Hotel in a prime location that delivers a truly terrible customer experience. The marketing is totally misleading. From the time we arrived the room we booked (sea view with balcony) was not available as it is a first come first serve basis even though we had been told when we reconfirmed twice on the phone we would...

Avoid - We booked 2 days in this hotel due to it being central to Bournemouth town centre, and had to check out after 1 day, because the hotel was so bad. The booking for standard double, and ended up in Room 121, which was a box room in the dungeon basement of the hotel, and beside noisy road, it... More

I booked a room with a sea view during the annual Air Show. Great views of the air show and the evening show including the fireworks display all from the comfort of your own balcony. Room and bed very clean. Had lunch in hotel and this was simple but good. Hotel has old style charm and nice gardens. Good central... More

We would just like to put a much different perspective on the much appreciated Air Festival day we had there this sat it was well laid out on the lawn a really good mix of people and whilst you have to go to the back fence and the veranda area to get the best views it is still an amazing... More

We paid £40 per head for a barbecue during the air show. The tables were laid beautifully in the gardens and we were given a complimentary Pimms. However, the barbecue was dire. The burgers were cheap and greasy, the buns stale. There were no onions for the burgers, the corn on the cob was mushy and cold, the jacket spuds... More

My friend and I booked a cream tea at the Royal Bath hotel. On arriving we requested that there were no egg sandwiches as we cannot eat eggs. The lovely waitress said no problem. When the tea arrived there was only one tea bag in tea pot for two. There were egg sandwiches which we could not eat and the... More

Damaged furniture several with rips. No very inviting! Tea was served. The other person who I was with also celebrating a special birthday. We were so looking forward to... More

This hotel was very nice, the bedroom we had was massive with 3 beds. The pool was lovely so was the sauna and hot tub. The breakfast was good and the 3 course dinners were excellent and good value at £9.95p per person and the kids ate for free. The bar prices were a bit expensive but you could get... More

We stayed here recently for four nights. I don't understand why people are complaining. Our room was spotless, with spacious ensuite and clean towels every day. There was lots of choice for breakfast and evening meal. The hotel was impressively large with lovely grounds and backing onto a coastal path, not far from the town and beach. The staff where...

This room was booked for me by a friend and I was horrified when reading about the room to see it had no windows (this was casually added to the end of the room description and easily missed!) I managed to get the booking changed to a room with windows for an extra price. The room I ended up with... More
