My wife and I stayed here recently for a one night break booked with Travelzoo. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations. The hotel is in an excellent position in the centre of Bournemouth with the added bonus of having a large car park that is free. Everywhere in the hotel is spotlessly clean with a modern decor. Our bedroom... More

As with other reviewers below, we took advantage of the £69 offer, with limited expectations of what we would get for that - how wrong we were! From the warm and helpful welcome when we arrived very early on the day of our check-in, the large and well-equipped room, the great location just a few steps from the pier, to... More

(Read on to my last paragraph to find out why I am especially grateful to Kayleigh.) With a couple of friends, my wife and I were looking for a short break and, like other recent reviewers, discovered the Royal Exeter’s amazing £69-a-night deal for a double room with a three-course evening meal and a full breakfast. For such a price,... More

We recently stayed at this hotel on a Travelzoo deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean, large and comfortable with a lovely shower and complimentary toiletries. The dinner was amazing, although we had to choose from a separate menu in line with the deal but all food was to a very high standard although the drinks were... More

We stayed here 23-25 March. My wife an I had often seen this hotel from the road and wandered how it survived and then we had an opportunity to have a short stay and what a surprise. The car park is not easy to access but once in side the hotel ..what a surprise, very clean, modern, excellent bedroom large... More

Had to deliver something nearby so decided to stay the night. Got a very good deal that included dinner bed & breakfast. The hotel is traditional but the bedrooms have been updated and were of a good standard. The staff were young, enthusiastic and helpful. The food was good and it was just a short walk to the beach. We... More

My wife and I have just returned home from a Travelzoo £69 bargain 24 hour stay. Nice retro hotel - well kept with friendly staff. Had a very nice room with partial sea view. Dinner in the excellent 1812 restaurant provided the new experience! The menu contained some interesting extra charges. A bread roll with the first course incurred an... More

We visit Bournemouth regularly and always stay at the Royal Exeter. It offers great value for money, secure car parking, excellent freshly cooked breakfasts, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable accommodation. We ate in the 1812 restaurant and can thoroughly recommend the quality of food. The hotel is also across the road from the BIC and a 5 minute... More

The purpose of our trip was to attend a concert at the BIC so we required a hotel close by and this is just across the road. The Hotel is magnificent and we had a wonderful room on the first floor in line with the 1812 Bar. We had been warned that as it was a Saturday, and they have... More
