Royal Exeter
Center of town, private car park essential. Very old building with creaky floors. Nice restaurant and lounge bar.. Do not go on bank holiday!

Central location, Victorian charme
The Royal Exeter is the oldest hotel in town, and is still family-owned. Apart from great food and a location right between the town's center and the beach (both 5 min. walking distance), it offers a certain Downton Abbey / Victorian charm, but the rooms are modern with all the amenities. The staff was very helpful and nice, and they do have a good sense of humour - I felt very welcome.

Nice hotel. Added the 3 course dinner.

Royal Exeter Hotel, Bournemouth
Front desk friendly at check-in. Linens and bathroom were clean but it seems the place has not been maintained over time. There is almost certainly mold in the walls- the mustiness overwhelms and could be a real problem for someone with allergies. It rained the night I was there and the fan in the bathroom ceiling poured water all over the floor. I informed the front desk and they appeared totally unsurprised, simply commenting that "it rained last night".
