Stayed one night and it is absolutely fabulous. Dinner was excellent and breakfast this morning was also excellent. Staff friendly. Clean and bright. Good position near The Pier and shops. Please Travelzoo more offers for this hotel.

We booked with TravelZoo some months ago and were really looking forward to this break. We weren't disappointed. We arrived in Bournemouth mid morning and drove straight to the hotel car park. The reception staff said they were more than happy for us to park there although we weren't able to check in till later in the day. On checking... More

The Royal Exeter Hotel has a lovely location, near to both the beach and the town centre. It is on a hill, and some might find this not to their liking. We stayed 2 nights, Thursday & Friday, with an upgrade to an executive room, in early March 2015. We arrived a little later than planned, but the receptionist made... More

We stayed two nights in the hotel, and had one dinner. Our room was large and comfortable with nice big bath towels and lots of hot water. The dinner which was included in the special offer we were on, was excellent, much better than expected, and the breakfast was also first class with a great selection of fresh exotic fruit... More

The upsides: The room was very clean and comfortable and of a good size. The hotel is really well placed for the beach and the town centre and I imagine in the summer when you just want to laze on the beach it's a great place to stay. It had a very well stocked tea tray and a good size... More

We had asked for a quiet room but it seems all rooms have their noise issues. Location was perfect for a gig at the BIC, the room was clean with a comfy bed and decent shower...but sleep? No! We were told the live band finished at 12.15 but it was still pounding through our 2nd floor room at 12:45. Then,... More

Great stay here, lovely old big building if you don't mind creaky floors which add to its character. Great location, 2 mins from beach and 10 mins from shopping. Food lovely in Restaurant and I'm a fussy eater. Staff very helpful and always want to please. Happy to bring dinner forward for us so could get to an early engagement.... More

We'd been forewarned that the hotel might be noisy at the weekend because of its town centre location. That didn't begin to prepare us for the unacceptable noise level inside the hotel, not outside. We'd been allocated a first floor room directly above the bar/disco and, when we requested a change, were given a much smaller one in the attic,... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Royal Exeter on several occasions over the past few years whilst our daughter has been at student at the Arts University and have always enjoyed our return visits with the finest breakfasts on offer. Last Sunday the three of us had the most delicious and reasonable three course lunch with friendly and... More
