This hotel is simply terrible and reminds me of another hotel in Paris where the receptionist was walking around without shoes; at least that episode was funny. Rooms are dirty, small and uninhabitable. Members of staff seem to be tired of living (I bet if you work in such a place). Breakfast is just a joke. Awful. This place is... More

We booked a double standard room. It was very clean and looked just like the pictures and had an amazing garden view. Bed was very comfortable. The breakfast served was very delicious. I really loved the history behind the hotel and how it was build by Russel Cotes over 100 years ago and was the main hotel for the higher... More

I live in Bournemouth but wanted a night out from home and come here for nice coffee in the comfortable lounge and my wife enjoys the swimming pool. Incidentally Alf Garnet filmed here when the pool was outside, very interesting episode. Had a massage at the spa and my coffee, very nice. The service can be hit and miss but... More

We thought the hotel was good value, we were attending a wedding locally the next day so it was fine. Staff helpful, we could sit in the restaurant where we liked. Meals exceeded expectations, house wine with dinner pleasant. Yes the decor and carpets could do with updating, but it was fairly clean. One tip - if you dont want... More

After booking this I was filled with dread having read the reviews, so much so I thought about cancelling! I am so glad I didn't. This hotel is in a fantastic location, A downhill walk to the seafront and opposite the shops & bars & clubs. We went for a mini break, just for both of us to escape reality... More

In the 1930's my grandparents who were refugees from Russia would spend their summer holidays at the Royal Bath , then the perfect English hotel . Last weekend I took my family, taking three rooms with fabulous sea views .Sadly the rest of the hotel was a faded shambles with photocopy prints of London up the stairs, dreadfully hung pictures...

The Royal Bath is in one of the best locations in Bournemouth, convenient for everything. It is however starting to look a bit run down in some areas but we like it for its 'old world' charm. Has a real old fashioned feel which doesn't suit everyone. We didn't eat here this time as last time the food wasn't great... More
