My partner and I wanted to get away for the night, we chose the royal bath hotel due to my parents having stayed here cheaply a couple of months earlier. Our package was averagely priced for what it was, a double room with dinner and breakfast. Our room was small in an almost deserted area of the hotel (overlooking a... More

I have just stayed for 1 night. Couldn't find the room service menu so tried to call down to reception 5 times but no reply. Ended up going down to reception to be told that not only did they no longer do room service but also that the buffet style dinner option wasn't available. They then continued to say that... More

Lovely Hotel in Bournemouth, great location; beautiful gardens; great facilities available; and helpful staff. We stay regularly in Bournemouth and always wanted to stay at the Royal Bath Hotel (which now belongs to the Britannia Hotel Chain) because of its location overlooking the Bay. Yes, the hotel has seen better and grander days during its 'De Vere & Earlier Times',... More

On impulse, I travelled to Bournemouth for a day trip and liked it so much (delightful people, gorgeous beach, stunning weather), I decided to stay overnight. Admittedly I hadn't booked ahead and it was a relatively busy time so I wasn't expecting the best of choices. The exterior architecture and the location of the hotel is great. It reminded me...

Went for a 1 night stay, was looking forward to using the spa. Pool very small. Jacuzzi only big enough for 2 people. Staff rude and unhelpful. Room basic bathroom tiny. Food buffet style dining, not much choice and not very hot.

First of all, we had to wait soo long for our car to be taken to the car park which we dont even know the reason until now.. To be honest, our was huge but everything was old.. View was great! The hotel couldn't provide one ice bucket! For a 4 star hotel, that should not be too much to... More

Booked this hotel at short notice for Easter Break. the building is impressive but it has seen better days and there are lots of areas where it is time to replace fixtures and fittings rather than refresh. Our room was large and reasonably clean but so dated and shabby, chips in furniture, rips and stains on carpets etc, and overly... More

We stayed at the The Royal Bath hotel over easter and I was saddened that this once great hotel linked to Oscar Wilde has lost its crown. I was so looking forward to staying at the The Royal Bath as I originally come from Bournemouth and I had so many wonderful memories of this hotel when I was a young... More

My partner booked here for a quick get away break. I had stayed here a few years ago and it wasnt that bad...however, it now appears to be in a real state and the room rates are not in line with the standard and quality of the accommodation. We paid £79 for a tiny double room, (Room 805) which was... More
