After reading mixed reviews, I was a bit worried about staying here, but I need not have worried! The hotel was in a nice area, close to many other hotels that I recognised from when I was choosing where to stay. I was only here for one night, but it was lovely. Easy to find, easy to park, very quick... More

Stayed there this week for an annual conference as I have in previous years. All communal facilities are very good as are the staff who are exceptionally helpful and friendly parking was also good. The hotel was fully booked yet all the food I had was very well cooked. Breakfast was diverse and quality ingredients (with perhaps the exception of... More

We took the car for a spin, and ended up in Bournemouth...seemed like a good idea at the time. We chose the BW Royale, as it was the first BW we came to, as I'm a rewards card holder. The car park was rammed, and we didn't have a reservation. Despite this, we were given a small yet adequate room... More

Hotel determined by Chrous member but great choice and value for money with good parking. As a Best Western Rewards member this enabled us to request an upgrade and the room provided a King size bed, adequate bathroom and suppiled with the usual hotel provisions. Hotel easy to find and is a 10/15 minute walk from the Convention centre/town centre.... More

A single night stay as part of a business trip, but due to traffic problems arrived very late, around 11.30pm. Easy to find and lots of car parking space. Friendly check in despite the late hour. I was allocated a chalet - a separate section of rooms at the rear of the hotel. Very spacious and clean, but did have... More

I stayed here at the end of March as we had tickets to see Micky Flanagan. This is a relatively comfortable hotel near Bournemouth town centre, which is a 10-15 minute walk away. Our double room was quite small and in need of some decoration and modernisation. If we had been staying here any longer I would have asked for... More

JohnSusan17 Thank you for your complimentary review. You are absolutely right that some of the rooms at the hotel are smaller than others but in an old building this is an inevitability which gives it character! To avoid any confusion we are rated by the AA as a 3 star hotel and advertise ourselves as that. The bar staff were... More
