Royal Exeter Hotel
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This converted Victorian mansion is a 5-minute walk from the beach and Bournemouth Pier
- It was one of the first hotels in the town
- The AA Hotel Guide 2020 praises the hotel's "ideal" location and "exciting" bar
The Royal Exeter Hotel is a stately Victorian property in Bournemouth town centre, five minutes' walk from the beach. It was once home to Lewis Tregonwell, a naval captain charged with defending the coastline around Bournemouth from smugglers and invaders.
Bournemouth has a "glorious 7-mile strip of soft sand" and a number of "hip hideaways" to visit, says Lonely Planet, and there's an abundance of things to see and do, including Bournemouth Gardens and Oceanarium: The Bournemouth Aquarium, which are both five minutes' walk from the hotel. You can also catch a show at the Bournemouth International Centre, which is directly opposite the hotel.
Bar So serves food and drink throughout the day, and mixologists make bespoke, seasonal and classic cocktails. The newly refurbished 1812 Restaurant & Bar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The hotel has 54 bedrooms, all with free Wi-Fi and 24-hour room service. There's also a small gym.
