Just spent a Friday through Monday at this lovely hotel with a golf society. The staff are superb and only too pleased to help you and the meals were first class. Attached to the hotel is a lively bar and excellent night club neither of which can be heard from your room should you prefer a less active stay. Ideally... More

We're regular visitors to Bournemouth and usually stay twice a year in the town. So we've stayed in a lot of different hotels over the years, never staying twice in the same one as there's always been something that we didn't like. But we have now found one we would definitely go back to - the Royal Exeter hotel. We... More

I chose this hotel as it was close to the BIC and the reviews were generally ok. However I didn't look at them closely enough. I telephoned ahead of my visit to request a quiet room away from the nightclubs. On arrival I was told there would be music until about 2.00 am but that it should be quiet enough... More

I was interested to read that the first house built in Bournemouth was put here, by a Posh Gent: and a very good place to be. Nowadays, an established hotel, decorated in attractive 'plushy' colours and furniture, I was very pleased to have found it. I hadn't realised that Bournemouth has a reputation of being a 'Party Town,' nor that... More

Stayed here for one night on a Saturday as the hotel is extremely convenient for the BIC. Alarm bells were rung when we were asked if we had been 'warned about the noise' when we booked. Mmmm. No, we hadn't. Our room on the top floor was older in style, but quite fine for our short stay with a nice... More

A marvellous hotel from every point of view. Single room was unusually spacious. Having bath & a shower was a pleasant surprize. Sarah on Reception was wonderfully helpful from carrying my cases to giving help on signing in to Wifi. Michele & Charlie were also very friendly & efficient in 1812 restaurant. I had a very convenient parking space at... More

Good centrally located hotel, albeit a bit dated with squeaky floorboards it's being renovated at the moment. Staff very friendly and free parking is a bonus. Attached bar is fab but closed early at 10.30 on a Tuesday night !! Great full English breakfast and whole hotel spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay again.

I went for a doo in Bournemouth and stayed here. It's an old hotel with eccentric corridors and not that even floors that has been given a lick of paint a a little modernisation. Downstairs there is a modern bar and restaurant of high reputation, but for me a bit noisy, as was the music that was very audible from... More

We booked a superior room at the Royal Exeter Hotel in Bournemouth Dorset for a long weekend stay.The hotel is in an excellent location close to the main beaches and within easy walking distance of the town center. Workmen had started to assemble scaffolding to the hotel exterior as we arrived and first impression on entering the foyer was that... More
