“Good hotel, standards you'd expect.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Our room was comfortable, clean and adequate for the one night we planned to stay. Breakfast was good, full English or Continental. Staff very pleasant and took my comment about no surface areas in the bathroom positively. I would also say I'd want a good light above the mirror in the bedroom, so I can sit down and put my make up on and blow dry my hair, rather than stand & bent over the basin.
Set back one road from the seafront in the quieter end of town, we were able to walk to the sea.

Room Tip: Take your own hairdryer!

Lovely bedroom, excellent meals. Main lounge a bit cool but the main doors open into it. Would recommend to anyone who wanted a not too expensive hotel for business or just a few days away. Easy walk to East Cliff with views over the bay or walk down to the beach.

Room Tip: Try the 3rd floor - quiet but the lift is very, very small, not suitable for those who travel with l...

I've stayed at numerous hotels in Bournemouth and this hotel was one of the best. Buffet breakfast was superb rooms were clean and spacious and the staff were very good from start to finish.
The hotel is less than 5 mins from the seafront and about the same into the town, and for a few quid your cars securely parked as well all day. Great hotel would stay again.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough, my wife and i stay here at least once a year, usually winter time and with friends, and i can honestly say it cannot be beaten on price and quality.
Admittedly there may well be better hotels in Bournemouth but not at the value we have found at the Hotel Royale, staff cannot do enough for you (big thank you to Kay you are a star).
Food is absolutely wonderful and the rooms are very well appointed, the inclusion of an indoor pool just makes this great value for money.
A stones throw away from the town centre and can be walked in about 10 min or so,
so very accessible for shopping or exploring.
Will definitely be booking again in the near future.

Room Tip: We normally stay in the st Moritz suite or trhe family rooms at the back of the hotel

It is always so nice to start the day with such a positive and complimentary review for which I thank you. The staff were very touched by your comments and it is most refreshing when people write a review because they thought it was good rather than only ever commenting when they feel let down.
Please keep recommending us and come back and see us soon - we love customers like you!!

We stayed only 1 night, but the hotel and staff was nothing more than excellent all round. As we were too tired to go down to the restaurant, we ordered a meal to the room, which again was really excellent. Breakfast was good with fried and scrambled eggs which you don't always get in self service, but the staff were on hand to help if needed. Will stayed there again on next visit to Bournemouth.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write such a complimentary review about the hotel. I cannot underestimate the benefit and encouragement it gives the staff and naturally helps other travelers in their selection process. Please come and stay with us when you revisit Bournemouth and you may be sure of a warm welcome and an equally enjoyable stay.
