Warm helpful welcoming. Great location. Room large with everything you need. Staff very helpful and kind. Only annoying thing was the bed! Kind bed great size however the mattress was hard and lumpy, did ask for the second night we stayed there if possible for something to be done, reception said they would sort something out however it didn't happen....

I am late filing this. Overall I would say that our experience was fine. Fantastic location in the centre of the city and a close walk to the beach. We had a family room because we had our 7 year old grandson with us. He loved the top bunk bed. The room could have done with some refurbishment. Breakfast was...

Excellent welcome from the young lady on reception even though we had arrived too early but we could check in and leave our car in their underground car park before wandering through the pleasure gardens to the sea. Excellent location with only one road to cross from hotel to beach and handily placed for the shops. Good executive room with...

Super helpful and friendly staff. Location is great and feel of hotel is so nice. We have visited a number of times and keep coming back. Decor needs a little uplifting in parts, but still a lovely stay.

All staff and facilities were very good, the room, hotel facilities - especially the pool and jacuzzi and garden area were perfect to relax in. I came to attend the Townswomen's Guild AGM which was very enjoyable and the hotel and staff added greatly to our first experience of Bournemouth, thank you all.

Just the one night in Bournemouth and the Norfolk Royale was an excellent base. Close to the action but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. A lovely building, nice lounge and bar, lovely garden. Rooms were delightful but let down slightly for overlooking what is a surprisingly busy and noisy road at 8am and a weird tv system....

I was not happy for the price I paid. Poor breakfast all over cooked or undercooked, I had hairs in my dinner and pudding was horrible. My daughters bed smelt of urine. I do not see how this can be 4 stars.
