Good sized room with comfortable bed. Plenty of parking which from previous trips to Bournemouth was a major bonus. The hotel is situated on a quiet road and set back a bit so nice and quiet. Not too far to walk to the town centre. It only took me 15-20 minutes. The wifi connection was very good. I only ate... More

We needed an overnight in Bournemouth and found an exceptionally good deal being offered by this hotel. Best Western quite often manage to pull off good deals like this so I frequently look to their places first. It is located in a leafy road just back from the east cliff which is just a few minutes stroll away (and delightful).... More

Well, this was booked for our Honeymoon and was a complete disaster from start to finish :( On entering our room, we quickly noticed that every floorboard in the room and hotel squeaked terribly, more to the point so did every one above our heads, not a great start. Breakfast the following morning was a disaster, the sausages looked anaemic... More

My sister and I spent one night at the Royale last week and I must stay it was very pleasant. We had a nice quiet room which was very spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did use the swimming pool, unfortunately there was not a jacuzzi which is a shame, but the pool was fine... More

This was a return visit for us. As before, all staff were very friendly and the lounge area is very relaxing and comfortable. Full English breakfast excellent. From our previous experience, we knew to ask for a room at the back and this (Room 313) was absolutely fine - very quiet and spacious. Our only criticism was that the pool... More

Vernewood Many thanks for the kind review and so sorry to read that you felt the pool was cold. I don't understand that at all since we host baby swim lessons in there daily and the temperature is checked before they enter the pool and it has to be 31 degrees - apologies anyway! Thank you for your repeat custom... More

Just on our way back from a short stay in best western hotel Royale and I must say what a lovely time we had. The staff were polite and attentive, the food was very good, and the room comfortable. The pool was an unexpected surprise, if it was a little small and car parking was at times awkward. I would... More

Jo_Jo_13579 Thank you for the review and I am sorry that you found your room 'noisy' - I do wish you had said something at the time especially staying for 3 nights and we would have moved you.

This hotel has the friendliest and most helpful staff I have encountered in Bournemouth. Our room was excellent and perfectly clean as was the bathroom. Breakfast was buffet with plenty of choice and regularly refreshed, the quality of food was excellent. Every time we stay in Bournemouth it will be at the Best Western Royale
