Just got back from a two night stay at the Royal Exeter Hotel in Bournemouth and stayed in room 201 at the front of the hotel.
The hotel is in an excellent location for BIC, Winter Garden, Pier and Pavillion Theatre.
I will list the good points first and then go into the negatives. Good location for amenities, free parking, free wifi in room, friendly staff, great breakfast choice and quality.
And now the negatives, the hotel is located literally on a small roundabout, the bar / nightclub stays open very late and is very noisy, rooms are not air conditioned or cooled in any way. Rooms are spacious but very dated, pillows are hard. Some of these points to some people will sound very picky and unnecessary but added together they put the whole experience into perspective. The ceiling above the bed was patched to a very poor standard after what must have been a damaged roof. Room 201 that we stayed in is directly above the front reception of the hotel and bar SO which as stated stays open until very late with thumping bass music and groups of intoxicated people shouting and swearing into the early hours. This noise coupled with the road noise and passing vehicles sounding their horns from the busy junction made our stay unbearable. When we mentioned all these points to the two young female receptionists, they apologised but stated that because we booked on the internet we wouldn't have know it was noisy there!
