Lovely stay, great location.
We stayed at the hotel for one night.
The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable-we both slept really well. We didn't use the hotel pool so can't comment on that. The hotel breakfast was very good-plenty of choice for hot and cold food. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was quiet and a lovely short walk to the beach. Parking was only £2 per night and the staff were happy for us to leave the car a few hours after checking out.
The only faults for us were with the shower and we admit that we forgot to mention this when checking out. We stayed in room 302- the water pressure was very low so really impossible to wash long/thick hair and the temperature was inconsistent -boiling hot or freezing, nothing in between. The only other gripe would have been with the windows- we were on the top floor and looked out over the front of the hotel. However we couldn't see out at all because the glass was so dirty -I think the double glazing may have needed replacing as it looked like the seals were broken and water vapour had filled the gap between the panes.
Coastal long weekend
Ideally situated friendly hotel for Bournemouth centre and surrounding coastal and New Forest areas.
Well linked to 3 other hotels in adjacent sea road who's facilities may be used. Hotel has a good sized swimming pool, unfortunately at time of visit, the heating element was not working and the water temperature was too cold for my friend to use the pool. Hopefully this will be resolved. Also at the current time, the East cliff lift to the beach is out of action due to a landslip. This restricts easy access to lower walkways and into town especially for those less able. No information was given at the site regarding repair programme or timetable.
Nice little stay (chalet room 121)
Above room was almost perfect, family size room with lots of space at the rear of hotel.
Very comfy bed good sized bathroom. Lots of tea coffee etc. My only niggle was the wif, it was awful in the room told reception who said they would reboot (but we know it's a token comment, no disrespect but nothing ever changes). It could have been just this room but signal constantly dropped out.
Had dinner and the food was spot on, the breakfast was a very well laid out buffet style one with lots of choices, probably one of the best breakfasts with excellent attentive staff with great manners. Very professional staff all round, credit to the management. But please sort the wifi.
One last thing the pool was great. For £60 we will be stopping again.
Good Value, clean and friendly.
Very comfortable stay
I've stayed here monthly in the past 6 months and always had a pleasant stay, the staff are friendly, the hotel is quiet, great location, pleasant bar area, TV and Internet always work well.
It's all I need. It is one block from the seafront and great for getting into town if needed.
Comfortable and affordable
The staff are always friendly and it's good value for money
The hotel was good with the staff being very professional and knowledgeable.
Breakfast was good although we had to wait quite a while for vegetarian sausages. The pool looked dirty and the water was pretty cloudy.
Iwould stay here again though as it is within walking distance of the town centre.
The hotel is very tired in need of updating asap, the rooms were as you'd expect from a cheaper hotel, the staff were helpful but limited knowledge nice pool.
BEST WESTERN Hotel Royale
Mum and daughter 40th birthday treat.
Felt hotel was dated. Pool area didn't feel clean water slightly cloudy and sink in loo area badly cracked and dirty. Used once and didn't linger. Excellent meal and bottle of wine which was recommended by the head waiter. Had difficulty making the barman understand that we wanted a filter coffee and a drambui coffee.Ended up with 2 lattes with a drambui in one. we felt that at nearly £10 this was expensive
