The hotel was only about 5 minutes walk from the hotel, it had it's own parking, that they didn't charge extra for! the room was a good size and nicely decorated with a sea view and most importantly...

We stayed at this hotel over the bank holiday. I was unsure what to expect but was really pleased. The receptionist was friendly, the room clean and newly redecorated. They have an excellent cocktail bar with friendly staff. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. There was live music in the bar later and the hotel also has a nightclub... More

We stayed at the Royal Exeter Hotel for the first May Bank Holiday weekend. The Hotel itself is very nice looking and conveniently located in Bournemouth. Overall, our stay was ok, but the one thing that bothered us was that directly below our room, the hotel has a club--the music from which kept us awake past midnight. It was really... More

Partner and I stayed at this hotel on the May bank holiday and it was very pleasent. Staff welcoming and let us know of what was going on. Room was clean, loved the bath! Found the bed extremely comfy. However, whenever you walked around the wardrobe creeked. Suprisingly couldn't hear the nightlife that was going on in the hotel. Would... More

Stayed Friday night. Apparently every weekend the bars and music stay open until 3am. Not sure if the time of ending is correct but whereas one of us fell asleep immediately (about 11.30), the other was kept awake until well after midnight. We were on the 3rd floor but the din obviously rose up! Not to be recommended on a... More

Stayed here Saturday night for a girls weekend. Arrived and check in service was slightly stand offish and not very friendly. Our room was on the first floor and the room itself was lovely the bathroom could have done with a better clean. They failed to warn us that if you are on the bar side of the building the... More

Stayed on a Saturday with a group of friends while visiting for a night out. Hotel is minutes away from the town centre and the beach. Front desk staff were welcoming and helpful, rooms were simple but clean and fine for an overnight stay. Decent, free wifi in rooms too. Something to be aware of is the hotel has both... More
