I stayed here for 2 nights on business this week. It's a homey hotel about 15 minutes walk away from the beach. The rooms are fine and have everything you need including a hair dryer, toiletries and tea/coffee but could do with a bit of updating. The breakfast was delicious with a great selection of cereals, fruit and fried items.... More

Organising our annual trip down to Tankfest at the Bovington Tank museum, this hotel caught our eye because of the great reviews it had received. Taking these on-board, we booked two rooms for three nights arriving Friday June 27th 2014 (room numbers 125 and 126). Until we arrived, we didn't realise there are a number of chalet type units built... More

Just spent 2 nights in this hotel. My husband and I were very pleased. Staff were great, nothing too much trouble. We stayed in a family room at the back next to the car park. Not actualy in the hotel, but still nice. Very clean indeed, and I am very fussy..... breakfast was also great, overall great place.

Excellent Hotel providing easy access and parking (Charged). The facilities in the lounge dining, and bedrooms are in line with Best Western standards. The location of the hotel is suitable for the town and beaches. Major local bus routes are a 5min walk.

We stayed in the BW Royale Bournemouth as a last minute solution to a book out with another hotel. I was recommended by a friend and took the booking as I was desperate after being let down. I was pleasently surprised when we arrived to be greeted by an efficient and welcoming reception with easy car parking and a clean... More

I spent two nights at the Best Western and was very pleased with the hotel. All the décor appeared to be new and clean. Quite modern but comfortable. A great bar area with a television that didn't intrude on conversations. The breakfast was generous with a selection of continental breakfast items, fruit or a full English breakfast - buffet style.... More

Check-in at hotel was great, very easy, and room was spacious and very clean. Hotel overall could have done with a little update decor wise and people upstairs sounded like they were trying to run a marathon which kept us awake at night a few times, but all the staff were welcoming and bar was fairly priced. Didn't eat in... More
