Stay in the heart of Bournemouth Great location - show map

This property is 2 minutes walk from the beach. Opened on Queen Victoria's coronation day in June 1838, the Royal Bath Hotel & Spa Bournemouth was the first hotel in Bournemouth. It offers 3 hotel restaurants, a health spa and lovely sea views.

Just moments from the seafront, this classically styled hotel has well-equipped rooms, each including a satellite TV and free internet. Some rooms also offer views of the secluded grounds and across the bay.

Royal Bath's restaurant uses seasonal, local produce whenever possible. Drinks, sandwiches and afternoon cream teas are served in the relaxed Lounge.

For their dining experience, guests can choose from the views at the Garden Restaurant, light meals at the Cafe Promenade or fine dining at Oscar’s, named after regular hotel guest Oscar Wilde.

The Leisure Pavillion allows guests to relax in an indoor pool, hot tub or sauna. There is also a gym and a range of health and beauty treatments available. Access to the spa and leisure facilities is subject to a surcharge.

This is our guests' favorite part of Bournemouth, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 8.8 for a two-person trip.
