First time in this particular Best Western and probably the best I've stayed in so far. I had to wait a bit as I was way too early, ordered a pot of tea. No problems there. Nice big and clean room , loaded with great amenities, excellent service, great view. Public transport is very good, bus stops across the street.... More

Good value huge rooms comfortable rooms. I stayed here as I had business in Portsmouth. I don't very bother with the car park as the spaces are very small, instead I park nearby in the road. Not the sort of Hotel you would take your wife for a romantic weekend away but great for business.

I've returned here many times often with my disabled daughter. There are steps in hotel but if you have a wheelchair the staff will take you through the basement from car park to lift. The location is brilliant right opposite the beach and you can hear the waves rolling in. Food is excellent, staff so friendly and happy to help... More

As members of Best Westerns Rewards we were upgraded to a Sea View room which was very comfortable.No Complaints there.All the staff we encountered were friendly polite and... More

We stayed here for a birthday celebration. Excellent room rates for b&b, big and airy room with sea views on 2 sides but the smallest bathroom I have ever been in. The food is good in the restaurant and the bar meals very generous. The hotel needs a refurb but the general ambience and the friendly staff make up for... More

Last Saturday my partner and I stayed at the Best Western Royal Beach Hotel for our company's late Christmas and New Years Dinner Dance. Historically we have always stayed at hotels in Bournemouth, however, due to incidents last year the management changed locations. What a wonderful hotel the Royal Beach is!. At reception, smiling faces, a willingness to help and... More

Thank you David for a great review of the hotel and services, there were in fact 243 guests that evening so as you said delivering that volume was a challenge which our team both accomplished and enjoyed, we look forward to welcoming you all back next January, best wishes Chris Gilmore GM More

Went here today with a party of 24 people for my stepmothers 50th birthday. We were a mixture of adults and children. The room was beautiful and we had a long table set and decorated very nicely. The staff were the best I have ever been served by and nothing was ever to much trouble for them. The food was... More

This is how just how I imagine a stately classic seaside hotel should look! A few parking spaces at the front, but more if one drove around to the rear (number recognition, so remember your car number!). Reception was friendly and efficient and my room was very spacious, bay window overlooking the sea, couple of arm -chairs and table, large... More
