The Royal Exeter Hotel is a Victorian mansion in Bournemouth town centre and was one of the first hotels in the town. It was originally home to Lewis Tregonwell, a naval captain charged with defending the coastline around Bournemouth. The AA Hotel Guide 2016 highlights the "smart" public areas and "exciting" bar, and 98% of Travelzoo members who stayed here and reviewed their experience said they loved it, particularly the "excellent food" and "great location".
There are 54 bedrooms, split between Standard and Executive rooms. All have free Wi-Fi and 24-hour room service. Executive rooms have modern décor and a spa bath. There's also a small gym.
Bar So serves food and drink throughout the day. 1812 Restaurant & Bar has an energetic vibe, with live music from Thursday-Sunday, so it can be noisy at times. Mixologists make bespoke, seasonal and classic cocktails. The restaurant offers set and à la carte menus, featuring British and French dishes.
Lonely Planet sums up why Bournemouth is a great place to visit, pointing out its "glorious 7-mile strip of soft sand", "hip hideaways" and "tempting watersports". There's a great selection of things to see and do, including Bournemouth Gardens and the Oceanarium (The Bournemouth Aquarium), both are a 5-minute walk from the hotel, or you can see a show at the Bournemouth International Centre, which is opposite The Royal Exeter Hotel.
