BEST WESTERN Hotel Royale.

Bang in the middle of Bournemouth!

The BEST WESTERN Hotel Royale is perched on the East Cliff in Bournemouth town centre, just a 5 minute walk to the shops, restaurants, night clubs and beach!

Surrounded by 7 miles of golden beaches, Bournemouth has all the sandy scenery you could ask for. And with our own sheltered gardens, there's plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the sea air back at the hotel.

Our comfortable rooms, including some spacious chalet family retreats, have been designed with comfort in mind. There's more room for relaxation in our modern leisure club, which boasts a large and airy indoor swimming pool.
