Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

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 an abundance of things to see and do, including Bournemouth Gardens and the Oceanarium: The Bournemouth Aquarium, which are a 5-minute 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. 1812 Restaurant & Bar serves European fare and offers both set and à la carte menus. It has an energetic vibe, with entertainment including live music, so it may be a little noisy.

The hotel has 54 bedrooms, and all have free Wi-Fi and 24-hour room service. There's also a small gym.

The food!

Great room but did have trouble sleeping due to noise from generators (perhaps from the gardens as the christmas ice rink was being put up) and noisy radiator. But still thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Other Comments
They had lifts BUT in the corridors to the rooms they had 3 or 4 steps with no hand rails I found this difficult but I could always hold on to my husband. If I was alone I would have had problems. This wasn't mentioned in the adverts . I am disabled.
