Echoes Restaurant

For fine dining whatever the occasion, Norfolk Royale, BW Signature Collection is the place to enjoy great food and great service.
Echoes Restaurant is situated on the ground floor and serves locally-sourced seasonal British cuisine. The art deco conservatory-style dining room provides a light and airy setting for breakfast and lunch, while by night it's transformed into an intimate candlelit atmosphere for dinner.
Breakfast is a choice of continental or full English, while dinner sees a three-course table d'htel menu served. We have an ever-changing seasonal menu but you can expect the likes of pan-fried cod with new potatoes, braised beef in onion gravy, and chickpea Thai curry. We're also open for lunch - including a traditional roast on a Sunday.

Opening hours
Breakfast: 07:00 - 10:30
Lunch: 12:30 - 15:30

Lounge Bar

At the heart of hotel life is our Lounge and Bar. Whether you're after a light bite before a show, a glass of wine with colleagues or you're treating someone special to traditional afternoon tea, we've got it covered.
On colder evenings, you can relax with a freshly ground coffee in front of the fire on our comfy leather sofas, while in summer the lounge opens on to our impressive art deco veranda where you can enjoy cocktails and snacks with friends.
Our informal lounge menu includes breakfast baps, sandwiches, salads, burgers and pizzas.

Your special day is special to us too. We will go out of our way to ensure your expectations are not only met but exceeded, whether you're planning the wedding of the year or a simple blessing with traditional afternoon tea.

We're licensed to host civil ceremonies and partnerships and, if you're having a church ceremony, we're within walking distance of nine churches - as well as the only beach in England where you can legally get wed.

Choose from our four beautiful suites or private enchanted garden to hold your celebration. These include the Surrey Suite for intimate weddings of up to 15 seated guests, and the Dorset Suite, which can seat up to 100. If you'd like an outdoor wedding, we can host large ceremonies in our private garden, which can be heated for those chilly nights. It also has a private outside bar and barbecue area.

We have a variety of wedding packages to make it easy to choose your food and drink. Alternatively, you can work with our chefs to create a bespoke menu to reflect your personal taste and wedding theme.

Here at The Norfolk Royale Hotel, we are licenced to host civil ceremonies and civil partnerships in each of our beautiful suites and in our landscaped private garden. We have small intimate spaces suitable for as little as 10 guests but can also seat up to 80 guests for a large ceremony in the enchanted garden.

Great food for a great day


Often the drinks reception is the first part of your perfect day where you can finally mingle amongst your loved ones, so it is a very important aspect of your wedding. The hotel can hold a drinks reception for as many as 150 guests or as few as 10. Enjoy Pimms, Prosecco, Champagne or a non-alcoholic beverage in our lounge, garden or one of our private suites. The Dorset and Surrey suites both have private bars so that your guests can purchase the drink of their choice, or alternatively you could run a bar tab and treat your party. Canaps can be arranged to accompany your arrival drinks.


Our aim is to ensure that the first meal you share as a married couple is nothing less than perfect. Your wedding breakfast can be held in various areas of the hotel. Our smaller suites create an intimate ambiance for as few as 10 guests, whereas our Dorset suite can seat 100 guests.

Great food is an essential part of a memorable event; therefore, we have a variety of packages to suit every party. Alternatively, you can work alongside our chefs to create a unique menu to reflect your personal taste and compliment the style of your big day.

If you fancy something a little different to the norm, just let us know! We can offer a hog roast in the garden, afternoon tea in the lounge or a delicious buffet rather than a standard 3 course sit down meal.


Now the fun really starts! Once again, we have a wide range of options for your evening reception. Our Dorset and Surrey suites can accommodate up to 150 guests, have private bars, sound activated disco lighting, portable dance floors and air conditioning. Or if you'd like an al fresco party we could host your evening reception in our private garden, which can be heated, has a private bar and a BBQ area.

The food will once again play a big part in your evening reception, we have a number of buffet packages, or we can organise something bespoke especially for you.

Beautiful bedrooms

Here at the Norfolk Royale Hotel we have 95 beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms. Our honeymoon suite is a real treat for your first night as a married couple, but we also have family rooms, single rooms and everything in between.

As well as our beautiful bedrooms, overnight guests can also enjoy breakfast in our Echoes Restaurant, a dip in our indoor pool and late night drinks in our Lounge Bar. If they stay for several days they could try out dinner in the restaurant, cocktails on the terrace, afternoon tea in the lounge and everything that Bournemouth has to offer!

Something a little different

The traditional Summer Wedding Breakfast followed by Evening Buffet and Disco isnt for everyone, so we are happy to offer many alternatives, here are some examples, but if we can do it for you we will!

Afternoon Tea
Cocktails and Nibbles
Evening Wedding
Midweek Wedding
