Cons:Our room was quite a distance from reception, but not a major problem really.
Cons:The room had no windows, I thought we were in a storage cupboard, the shower kept changing temperature and the shower head kept falling down. The bed was tiny and hard. It was a really dreadful hotel.
Cons:See our comments of 'what we liked'. Terrible hotel. Needs total modernisation, as location is good. Need new staff, training, etc. avoid staying there at all costs!

The Royal Bath Hotel and Spa was the first hotel to open in Bournemouth in 1838 and is said to have once been a regular haunt of Oscar Wilde. It’s a grand old building on the seafront with three restaurants, a bar, a leisure centre and a full spa. The rooms have been tastefully renovated and designed to reflect the history of the building. Most have views of the sea or the hotel gardens.
There is a heated indoor pool as well as a splash pool for children. The spa has a steam room, a range of beauty treatments such as pedicures and facials, as well as massage. The fitness suite has a range of cardiovascular machines and free weights. The gym and pool are open to guests and there are additional charges for the spa beauty treatments.
Couples report that the atmosphere of the rooms, the sea views and the in-house restaurants make this a lovely place to organise a couples retreat. The spa facilities as well as the fitness centre are a strong attraction also.
