We had visited the hotel once before and have fond memories of the friendly staff and lovely food. Well this time it exceeded all of those memories. The food was extremely well presented and delicious. The hotel itself was warm comfortable and decorated to a very high standard. The whole experience was flawless and my wife loved being pampered in... More

We stayed for a weekend at the beginning of October and were pleasantly surprised at the general standard of the hotel - definitely better than general Best Western hotels we have stayed in. The staff were very helpful, especially in the bar and restaurant - as we developed into a rather large group with friends. Food was very good, especially... More

We were a party of 10 staying at the Connaught for a weekend. The hotel was very nice, clean with easy access to town, if down quite a steep hill. The restaurant staff had put a lot of effort in to setting up the room for our evening meal, even printing off special menus with our name on! Like a... More

First time at a Best Western for a few years as they never seemed to live up to expectations. Thought I'd give them a go for a change. I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The staff, the room and especially the fitness suite, were excellent. 5 minute walk to the town centre made it easy to find restaurants. Try... More

I looked at the hotel reviews before booking and although reviews are helpful I do not take them automatically as fully accurate but it gave me a good overall view. We were not disappointed and can certainly see why the hotel scores so highly and is rated number 1 in Bournemouth, we too rate it as very good. The staff... More

We have been coming to the Hotel for several years and are constantly reminded of the effort and continuous improvement the Management and Staff put into their work. The Staff are polite, sensitive and aware without being intrusive. I have stayed at the N.Y.

Stayed one night while attending a function. The room, although a little small, was clean and well appointed. the shower room was modern. All the public areas were well decorated, clean and tidy. All the staff encountered were a credit to the hotel, especially the barman asking if we wanted large or doubles for the G&T's ! Breakfast was the... More

We had not visited Bournemouth before so booked 3 nights at the Connaught. We were not disappointed. This hotel was everything we wish for, it was immaculately clean throughout, nothing was too much trouble and the staff were excellent. They were highly efficient, friendly and extremely well trained but moved around and did their jobs with a minimum of fuss.... More
