I was very surprised to read some of the reviews on here our experience couldn't have been more different. We have just returned from a 2 day break in Bournemouth and found the hotel staff to be very accommodating (we had booked to stay in the Wessex Hotel but were so appalled we checked out immediately and walked in to...

We stayed at the Royal Bath a few years ago for a special event and decided to revisit to celebrate another event. Times have changed. It seems the Royal Bath is now under new ownership. Well, they need to set up a serious staff training programme. The hotel has lovely grounds and we enjoyed our break but there were so... More

Having stayed at the hotel before and having an excellent room we had no reason to doubt it for this stay. How wrong we were. We hadn't realised that it was no longer owned by De Vere Group but by Britannia Group who unfortunately appear to have let standards drop. The room was small, the windows, old sash type, couldn't...

For over an hour I... More

Having previously stayed at The Royal Bath expectations were high when we decided to bring our Children here for Easter Weekend however this Hotels standards have dropped to below a 3 star Hotel, upon arrival the car was parked for us by a very Helpful porter named Scott, for an additional charge of 20:00 per day, upon entering our room...

What should have been a good review was totally turned around when the hotel decided to rip me off after my departure. My wife bought a 'wowcher' deal for my birthday because we had been impressed on previous stays when the hotel was run by de vere, we even talked two other couples to book, and I paid for an... More

Booked to stay in the Royal Bath for our anniversary and was really looking forward to it. The hotel has a fantastic location, its right on the seafront and has lovely gardens and a very elegant decor and lounge area. The atmosphere upon entering the impressive lounge area was slightly ruined by the sounds of a man playing 'come fly... More

After reading several bad reviews on here and other sites for this hotel after booking it, I was aprehensive of what it'd all be like, but thankfully was pleasantly surprised at how wrong all the bad reviews were! Was seen to very quickly at the front desk and was issued two key cards without having to ask for an additional.... More

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
