The Oceana Day Spa at a nearby hotel

Executive room



A welcoming hotel on Bournemouth's peaceful East Cliff, a short walk from the beach – includes breakfast, dinner and access to the swimming pool and leisure facilities

Set in a period building fronted with greenery on Bournemouth's peaceful East Cliff, the Best Western Hotel Royale is a comfortable bet and a mere five-minute walk from the beach. Miles of sandy shores and stand-out Blue Flag beaches promise plenty of invigorating salty-air walks, and you're a pleasant 15-minute amble from the town centre's shops, bars, restaurants and typically English seaside pier. The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum and Bournemouth's Oceanarium aquarium are within short strolling distance too.

The hotel has a handy partnership with a nearby hotel, allowing you access to The Oceana Day Spa, whose pool sits beneath a Swiss-like arched wooden ceiling and is perfect for a relaxing swim when you don't fancy testing out the English Channel's not-so-toasty temperature. Dinner and a generous buffet breakfast spread are served in the hotel's brasserie, and there's a characterful bar and lounge area for all-day refreshments too. The hotel holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for its warm service, among other accolades


Enjoying its tranquil home on East Cliff, you're a short stroll from the sea and an easy 20-minute walk to the shops, restaurants and nightspots in town, the Oceanarium and Bournemouth's classic seaside pier. If you feel like diving back in time and doing a little art-gazing, make time for the splendid Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum on the way ‒ around a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Bournemouth revels in no less than four award-winning Blue Flag beaches, so gorgeous coastal walks are a must.
