Best Western Hotel Royale

Reviewed March 10, 2011

We booked a late leisure break stay here in early March, me, my husband and 4yr old daughter in a family room. We are not seasoned hotel stayers so not too much comparison, but were impressed with all members of staff and acknowledged by everyone. The room was plenty big enough for the three of us with a double and single bed, all very clean. We used the pool (pool towels provided) which was lovely but the showers were too hot to use there were notices to this effect and we believe maintenance was being carried out to them. Breakfast was plentiful and hot and the service was very efficient and friendly. Easily accommodating our 4yr old and a family with a baby were helped with heating baby food etc. The location is great, close enough to town to walk but no noise (The church bells stop chiming the hour between 10pm and 8am!!) . The building is old as is every other hotel in Bournemouth as a consequence there are creaky floorboards which woke me up once or twice. Our showerhead was broken which led to a dissappointing shower but this is easily fixed so shouldnt be an issue to the next family?! There are barriers at the car park entrance and you need a token to get out, there are notices saying you need to pay for a token but we were never charged. Overall we had a good stay and would recommend this hotel for a short break.

We booked a night here at the last minute to have a day away and were really thrilled to find it was such a lovely hotel. Having read other reviews we can't understand the negetive ones as we found the room was really comfortable, clean and spacious and the staff were so friendly. The receptionist was so accomodating and the manager was so helpful to bring us a heater to tide us over until the heating came on.
Also the breakfast was a treat with so much to choose from the buffet and again the staff were a credit to them.
Many thanks to them all and we will definitely come again!

This hotel was pretty good, room nice, pool good, not too hot (like most hotels). Easy walk to the pier, good breakfast. A little bit noisy though due to creaky floorboards. I was impressed with the free wifi.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and were very impressed with the hotel in general. Nice decor in rooms and all public areas. All staff very polite and accommodating while still being friendly and approachable. Table d'hote menu excellent in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Yes, there are some squeaky floorboards but nothing that would keep you awake! Beds a bit noisy but still comfortable. This hotel is popular with families, probably because of the pool and value for money the hotel offers. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for my husbands birthday. we were allocated room 204 which was spacious and clean. The staff throughout our stay were excellent. I must mention Nochad who looked after us in the restuarant, whom was excellent and I cannot commend highly enough. He really is an asset to the team. My husband and son enjoyed the pool. We found the hotel well upkept and the decor very good in all areas. Yes, they charge for parking, but this goes to a local children's charity which personally we found more than fair. The hotel room was very warm, and the WIFI operated fast and we had no problems with this. The room was clean, and the bedlinen clean. It's a short walk to the centre or you can get a taxi for around 4 pounds. We were also very pleased with the quality of the food in the restuarant and via room service. I would very much recommend this hotel and would like to thank Nochad for making our stay that much more fantastic.

I would rate this hotel as the best hotel in the UK for their greatest service ever as i have been around in many hotels for my business purpose... i visited with my family recently and for the second time alone for my business purpose which was great and again im more happier to stay here so i have decided to write this long review as to help who ever wants to visit for a such a fantastic hotel..
We stayed here over Christmas were really impressed with the convenient location of this hotel and its intimate feel and lovely views. rooms were just perfect for our needs. They had lots of space, excellent complimentary tea/coffee facilities and the staff were great.. specially i should mention Mr.Nochad he is such diamond person for this hotel as he helped for my needs evrytime i visited, and all other staff were great too.. excellent friendly service and the food was just great too! Breakfast was a friendly service and a little more relaxed.
Without a doubt the service in this hotel is the best in the world, from arriving to departure we were greeted and assisted by very friendly staff who simply gave a very good impression of enjoying their job – each and every member of staff were simply stunning in their service delivery from reservation through to our departure which made our stay perfect.The ambience of this hotel was simply perfect for us and we can’t wait to return again to out next holiday or any of my business visits.. star hotel..
