SimoenB Thank you for the most complimentary review and I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the hotel and the attractions in Bournemouth.

It was our first trip away with our 2 young boys and we were slightly worried about how the stay would be. We were welcomed by Alan Gilmour who looked after us so well for our whole stay and made sure we had everything we needed. The location was perfect, 2 mins from the beach and a short walk in...

Clean nice hotel room. Staff really friendly even when we'd done our booking incorrectly they were happy to change it. The bed was comfy and room had a tv. Close to the bars and restaurants only a short walk. Very good value for money, only let down was quite noisy in the morning

Well it was time for our annual visit to the Hotel Royale (Bournemouth). As usual we were greeted with the same warm reception from the staff on duty at the time. I would like to think that we're more like "old friends" now rather than guests, as we have been visiting this hotel for a number of years now. We... More

We booked a room for three adults as we were going to a concert in Bournemouth. Our room was round the back of the hotel in some 60's style chalet/ flats....but when we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised. The room was massive. One double bed, two singles and loads of floor space. It felt really spacious. Decor was... More
