Having visited this hotel for business I knew it would be perfect to take my Grandson and his parents away for his first holiday. We were not disappointed - nothing was too much trouble and the staff were amazing. The rooms spotlessly clean with big comfortable beds. Definitely a Royale experience.

Stayed here for a week while attending a conference. While the rooms are a bit dated they are clean and the staff are so fantastically friendly. The staff could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble and any issues were resolved very quickly. The breakfast is great, both full English and continental. We ate in the restaurant...

Any time we are in Bournemouth, we check to see if there is availability at this hotel. The hotel is on a quiet tree-lined street, just a 5 minute walk to the seafront. The main building offers clean, comfortable rooms. Our corner room had high ceilings with big windows on 2 walls giving a light and airy feeling to the... More

I stayed here for five nights for a conference in Bournemouth. Although quite a way from the centre, I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely walk and it's right near the cliff lift! My room on the third floor was basic but lovely and clean and suited my needs perfectly. The breakfasts were always tasty and plentiful. The evening meals... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights. The standard double room on the third floor was very small and very hot. The walls were paper thin and the shower pressure was almost non existent. We were woken about 07:00 on the first morning by people chatting very loudly. I went to the reception and was told that they would... More

This is a nice hotel, it was all clean and tidy and well presented. I stayed here for one night for business, I was greeted by a lovely lady in reception, who talked me through the facilities and really made me feel welcome after a horrid journey. I was a little late for the restaurant so she recommended the bar... More

Nice, clean hotel but the parking situation was a bit stressful - spaces a bit too small - would advise arriving in the daytime! However reception staff friendly and helpful did their best to help. Unfortunately our double room was pretty small and in need of a bit of re-decoration and new furniture - the bed was small and mattress... More

Little_Paz13 Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you appear disappointed with your room. Unfortunately with older buildings there is always a spread of room sizes and indeed decors. We simply can't put photos of every room on the website! My sincere apologies that your room was smaller than you wanted. Kind regards Michael Katzler Managing Director More
