Christmas Residents 2018

Make your 2018 festive season memorable and be spoilt rotten. Celebrate this Christmas and New Year in the luxurious surroundings of The Norfolk Royale Hotel, we promise you a visit to remember!

We have something for everyone; traditional carols, festive food, live music, dancing, trips to the pantomime, as well as sumptuous afternoon teas and cake buffets.

Whether you are joining us with family or friends you will find great food, a festive atmosphere and the warmest of welcomes. My Team and I are here to pamper you.

The Norfolk Royale Hotel is situated in the centre of Bournemouth. We are a few steps from all the nightlife, entertainment and leisure activities that the town is renowned for. Not to mention shopping! Bournemouth has all the high street favourites and nearby Castlepoint Shopping Park will be full of Christmas sale bargains.

It may be a little chilly during December, but our award winning blue flag beaches are just a half mile walk from the hotel through Bournemouth’s beautiful gardens, perfect for a bracing stroll before lunch or afternoon tea. Water sports fans love Poole Harbour, the conditions are perfect for windsurfing and jet skiing. Just west of Bournemouth is the stunning World Hertitage coastline, with romantic locations such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove attracting admirers from all over Europe and beyond.

This is how your luxurious Christmas will look:
