I had a great stay at this hotel, and it has fantastic parking. The staff were welcoming and kind throughout the whole stay, and the bar area and breakfast were worthwhile. I did have a problem with my bath and the water came back up the plug hole, which seemed an issue on the top floor for some reason. But,... More

We chose this Hotel as we knew it had nightlife and we were meeting up with a group of friends (and we're not the quietest bunch). We were treated well by all members of the team - desk, bar, restaurant, cleaning and breakfast staff. One member stood out however and went above and beyond to make us feel extremely welcome...

second time I have stayed at the Royal Exeter hotel whilst working at the BIC. Rooms are comfortable and breakfast is good. The cocktail bar has a great stock of alcohol, but if you stay above the bar it can be loud as everybody smokes outside there.

We have stayed here so many times over the years and wouldn't go to anywhere else when in Bournemouth. Love a late evening cocktail and the food is always good there. Drink a few Whisky Sours and have a totter down to the beach. Job done.

Having been a regular business traveller to the region and having stayed at The Royal Exeter regularly for over 5 years or more, it is with some sadness that I note a total deterioration of the usual high standards. Our company used to have a Bartercard account with the hotel and many members of our staff would spend money in... More

We booked a two night stay through Travel Zoo and was very pleasantly surprised. Our room was very large and even had a sea view. The hotel is very central and everything was within an easy walking distance. Our meal on the first night was included in the deal and I really just expected pub grub. We were really pleased...

Stayed for one night tied in with a concert at BIC. Free parking - this in itself was a delight! Location perfect, close to shops, gardens and seafront. BIC is literally a stones throw away. The reception desk were very welcoming and helpful. Room was a good standard, clean and modern enough. The food was outstanding both evening and breakfast... More

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
