This is our 4th visit to the Norfolk Royale in Bournemouth. We come every January when they offer a special rate for Dinner, bed and breakfast. It's a 4 star hotel with swimming pool, sauna and steam room & has very pleasant public areas. The location couldn't be more central.

I’ve stayed in many of Bournemouth’s hotels over the years and have to say that i wasn’t overly impressed with the Norfolk Royale. The room was a little tired and dated, along with the rest of the place! On the plus side, the breakfast was very good.

Hi the hotel is almost in the town centre so the price is about right for the hotel. There aren't any side roads you can park. The road is straight off the dual carriageway. Hope you have an enjoyable holiday. Regards
