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.

Dear Lizzielou, thank you for taking the time to write a review about Hotel Royale. I am so sorry that you were the only person taking Dinner in the Hotel that night apart from the resident diners attending the Function. It is highly unusual that nobody else chose to take dinner on that evening as it was a Saturday night and we are generally very busy. I am however pleased that you really enjoyed the food. We are launching a super new menu very shortly and I hope you will return and experience our usual warm, welcoming and friendly dining ambience, Patricia Green
