My wife and I recently had a 2 night DDB break with a Travel zoo voucher, which was tremendously good value. We normally stay at The Hallmark East Cliff and have never had to complain. Our experience at this hotel was somewhat different. On checking in we were given the key to our room on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately the...

It was our first experience of a Best Western Hotel and it was spot on in terms of location to Bournemouth town and Winter Gardens (15-20 minutes walk) and 10 minutes to the sea front. We were greeted by Carlo at reception who made us feel welcome and gave us the code for the good size swimming pool which is...

We stayed on the Travelzoo deal on Saturday night (£20 extra) and had a lovely time. The staff couldn't do enough for us and we really appreciated how welcome we were made to feel with our young baby (it was our first night away since her birth). They provided a travel cot which was in excellent condition.We were initially given...

Just back from a very pleasant 2 night stay at Best Western Hotel Royale with friends. Very good value at only £59 a night for 2 people including breakfast and dinner. The buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty to choose from. Dinner was good too and plentiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lounge area was nicely decorated...

Relaxing stay whilst visiting a friend in Bournemouth. Room was adequate and bed was comfortable. The staff were very friendly and attentive to my needs. A short walk to the cliff with spectacular views of the fabulous beach.

Recently stayed at this hotel on a two night deal. We arrived a little early, but decided to go for a swim in the indoor pool, we found the pool area in need of upgrading and a good clean, was really cold as all the doors where open for maintainance I think, but not a relaxing experience.

Staff friendly and helpful, breakfast and evening meal of very high quality. You can always tell a good breakfast from how lean the bacon is and if the fried eggs are still runny. The evening meal was first class – veg not boiled to a pulp, and would highly recommend the tuna. The wi-fi signal was good throughout the hotel,...

I stayed at the Hotel Royale for a business trip and found it to be very welcoming and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was particularly good, there are two menus the brasserie and Chinese (they have a Chinese chef). I sampled food from both menus and was very impressed especially by the Chinese food. My room was comfortable and...

Having booked a weekend away in this hotel as a getaway, my wife and I found it to be ok, not good, not bad but decidedly average although it was very clean and the bed was very comfortable.
