Don't know who's idea it was, but the hotel is very pink outside! Reception staff and check-in were very efficient. The suite was large, but in need of a refurb (creaky floors in particular). The room was on the front right as you look at the hotel, and heavy lorries seem to use the road by the side quite early... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Norfolk Royale. The hotel itself is in a decent location and the car park price is good value considering your car is locked away in a secure underground car park. The room was clean and acceptable. Some of the staff were brilliant. A special thank you to Stephanie - Reception Manager for... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my champagne afternoon tea experience. There was a good variety of sandwiches and cakes. The venue itself is tastefully decorated and in excellent condition. The staff didn't rush you, I would say it's one of the best afternoon teas I have had locally.

Location is excellent, but decor is in much need of a refurbish. Everything worked in our room, but it's been years since a last saw a non flat screen TV. Reception staff very helpful, at lunchtime we had the club sandwich which was excellent.

Constant pulsing low-level machinery hum made sleep a stop start affair. The breakfast service is not designed for people in any sort of a hurry. Toiletries not replenished, which is just stingy, as is the lack of free wi-fi in the room in this day and age. Creaky floors, faded splendour, a whopping £5 tray charge for room service.

I've stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend and parents three times now and we absolutely love it! The location is excellent right in the centre of town, the rooms are always nice (HUGE TVs), the food is excellent and the pool area is small but perfect for a quick dip. It's the perfect hotel for a stress free mini... More

Had a lovely afternoon at this hotel for afternoon tea. We started off with a glass of champagne each, followed by a pot of tea and then sandwiches, cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam. Absolutely perfect. The setting was great as well as the service. We had a couple of drinks at the bar which were a bit... More

We arrived early and our room was ready. Service was excellent and the food in the restaurant was first class. Dinner needs to be earlier so that guests can attend concerts without rushing. The rooms do need updating especially with flat-screen TV's, but they were extremely comfortable and an ideal Hotel to stay for all the amenities of Bournemouth.
