“Good location, great rate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Got a great rate of £69 per room incl breakfast. Breakfast was buffet style and was fine with normal breakfast fare. Hotel was clean and tidy but felt old in places. Grounds and the outside of the hotel could also do with a freshen up. It has the potential to be excellent. Good, central location with shops, restaurants, the beach and international centre all very close by. Valet parking at £20 per 24 hours or an adjacent public car park at £12. If you get the choice ask for a room on the upper floor as we experienced floorboard creaks from the room above. Friendly, helpful staff.

This hotel is clean full of wordly charm and incredibly relaxing. Although a part of a hotel chain it is very friendly but at the same timequite intimate. Fantastic rooms lovely staff and a very chilled breakfast no fuss no hassle great selection of fresh food.

This hotel has the potential to be glorious with some money spent on it, but it is comfortable and convenient to the beach.

Room Tip: I believe there are refurbished rooms - On reflection, maybe I should have asked for one.

Just returned from the Royal Bath. Its a good hotel in a great location - just a short walk to town and the BIC. This hotel is now very tired and in nned of some money spent on it.
We upgraded to a sea view room for an extra £10 - worth it, but it was on the far lefthandside as you look at the hotel from the townside. You get a good level of comfort and cleanliness.
We had a drink in the bar after seeing a show, and no lagers were available on tap.
For the money and experience, i think the Premer Lodge is better value.
Its more upto date and in better condition, although the Royal Bath could be exceptional. They have the staff quality and ambience. The Pool and Spa are good though, and much more what you would expect from this Grand Hotel.

Room Tip: Sea View & in Royal wing if possible
