We visited the Royale for a long weekend with our son and daughter in law and baby grandson, we were all welcomed and we all had a brilliant time. The hotel is spotless in all public areas and bedrooms. The food is superb from breakfast to dinner but the main thing that made our stay was the friendliness and helpfulness... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 2 nights for £65 per room b&b. Good location (7 mins to beach and 12 mins to either Boscombe or Bournemouth piers). Very good value. Good breakfast selection - hot and cold. Friendly staff. Small but clean room with en-suite. The negatives are the receptionist wasn't as attentive as she should be, and the shower in room... More

I'm usually in the Ramada Encore when I'm in Bournemouth so if was a nice change to find it full and check into the Royale instead. An altogether more traditional affair. My room was a bit small (202 double for single occupancy) but very clean and comfortable and a bathroom which looked like it was installed last week. Wifi was... More

Was greeted by the staff very well and throughout the stay. The hotel public area was up to a reasonable standard. The room that I was in was very dated. There was a lot of noise from the room above from just walking and talking until the early hours, so no sound proofing. Can't comment on the pool as never... More

We checked in fairly early and the staff were very friendly. Managed to get car parking space though car park did get very busy which does seem to be the case wherever you stay in Bournemouth. Room was comfortable and clean and breakfast very good.
