The staff are led by the Duty Manager Alan who has perfect customer service skills, this is passed onto his staff who are well groomed, friendly, helpful, hardworking, polite and a credit to Best Western. The room was a bit small but ok for 3 nights. The... More

We wanted to take the kids away for a few days just before the end of the summer holidays. We had a fairly tight budget and my wife suggested the Best Western Royale in Bournemouth. I was very sceptical as I had stayed in 'chain' hotels before, and the experience had never been good, However I couldn't find anything to... More

Spotlessly clean throughout, modern decor, friendly professional staff and very nice room. Breakfast was excellent and the food served for evening meals was also great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Bournemouth other than this hotel.

Really restful break. Made to feel at home - staff really attentive, room (superior) had a lovely view and was quiet. Food excellent (probably the best we have experienced in the UK at the price). We'll be back.

Despite having a terrible cold That didn't put me in the best mood for a long awaited break, I was very impressed. On arrival we were given one of the suites. The rooms were very spacious, good powerful shower over the bath that was lower than normal and easy to step into. The staff were all lovely without being over... More

Decent room, clean and comfortable. Only downside was the noise from other guests disturbing us most nights. 8 and 11 year old loved the swimming pool, which we used every day. It is a good size and warm. Breakfast was included and was very good, setting us up for the rest of the day, we required very little else to... More
