All the hotel staff made you feel welcome. Staff were very knowledgable about the area. Smiles all round, an extremely clean hotel. Good provision of all advertised services. I would very happily recommend a stay here.

Great hotel, in a perfect location. The staff were faultless, the room was clean and well presented. Breakfast was lovely, good quality and lots of choice.The pool is a nice little extra and was clean and tidy. Plenty of parking, we had no problems finding one during our stay.We will definitely use again and would highly recommend.

My husband and I decided to take our granddaughter to the seaside for a short bucket and spade holiday. We wanted an hotel with a swimming pool and within walking distance of the beach. The Royale suited us all down to the ground. Parking was £2 per day, which we didn't begrudge the hotel as there was plenty of room... More

If I had known Bournemouth better I would still have found it hard to get a hotel nearer to the air display. We were within one minutes walk and found it very handy. The staff were all excellent.

A lovely hotel with excellent service and very helpful staff. The breakfasts are fantastic! It's in an ideal location, a walkeable distance from the town and handy for a path down to the beach. The cliff lift is even nearer but not working at this date.
