No no no don't be mislead by the name! The worst hotel I have ever been to. Checkin took hours, staff looked like newly appointed and didn't have a clue of what's happening, Rooms are out dated and scruffy. Breakfast was basic and didn't have the intercontinental feel.. Check out was equally worse, they took more than 2 hours to...

It was the first time we had been to a Traditional Dorset Afternoon Tea in the Lounge at the Royal Bath and we were very impressed by the splendour of this Victorian hotel, which was opened in 1838 and was Bournemouth's first hotel. We enjoyed our tea of finger sandwiches, homemade scones and cakes, with tea and coffee, sitting in...

This is the 4th time we have visited this hotel and it is always a successful stay. We were allocated a lovely sea view room with four poster bed which was a nice surprise. Spotlessly clean, fresh towels every day and lovely staff. Food is very good with plenty of choice in a very big dining room. Lounge area is...

We stayed here recently in this lovely old hotel which in it's day must have been magnificent but looking a little tired now, nevertheless we had a very pleasant stay. The bedroom was nice and large and the en-suite clean and tidy with a shower over the bath but with adequate power to have a decent shower. The staff were...

Stayed at the Royal Bath Hotel last week for 2 nights. The hotel was perfect. Wonderful rooms, facilities and staff. Everyone was so helpful throughout our short stay. This hotel tops my list to certainly return another day. Located in an ideal position

This hotel has sat in its prominent position in Bournemouth for all of my life and it was actually built in 1838. 'Royal' was added because The Prince of Wales stayed there in 1856. I mention this because this is a venue with some history, and you do sense it when you are there. The public rooms are large and...

I have been a member of Spindles for the past 3 years and have to say this is the best leisure club in Bournemouth. Lovely location, hot sauna and great staff. Big thanks to Julia and Pavel for making us feel almost like home and work hard to make sure everything is working smoothly. Big thumbs up to the cleaners...

The staff were really friendly especially Zac and Chelsea in the Spa. Lovely afternoon tea in the lounge and hope to do something similar in the...

We were there on a four day break having previously stayed before it became a Britannia hotel. We were not disappointed and found the hotel still to be of a good standard. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable although things were a little chipped round the edges. As part of our package we ate in Oscars brasserie, a...
