I have just returned from a very enjoyable three night stay. The hotel was lovely, with a very professional team, who should be congratulated for their excellent service. I can highly recommend this hotel for buisness or pleasure trips to Bournemouth. Within walking distance to the beach.

Was a beautiful hotel with friendly staff, a great location and a lovely breakfast. The only small issue we had was my husbands plate was taken without being asked before he'd completely finished at breakfast. Other than that it was a great stay.

We stayed for one night at The Connaught Hotel and found the staff to be very helpful both when booking the room over the phone just two days before and when we arrived early and was able to check in and park the car. We had room 58 - an executive room - which was spacious and had a bath.... More

Stayed at the hotel for two days. On arrival owe room was ready and it was spotlessly clean and the bed was the most comfortable I've had in any hotel. The bar area was very relaxing and the food was excellent. All staff couldn't do enough for us and they are a credit to the hotel. The breakfast was excellent... More

We selected the Connaught Hotel due to its location and price as we were a group of 8 golfers playing local courses. The rooms were fine albeit a little warm, all of the group needed to leave the windows open overnight to maintain a suitable temperature. Breakfast was good with a wide choice and excellent service. On the whole this... More

Wonderful hotel where the staff were very welcoming. My daughter and I arrived very early and even though we could not go in to our room of course, we were able to use the spa facilities freely which was excellent. Free parking was appreciated. Once parked, we didn't use the car again as the hotel was in such a good... More

A very neat warm, homely environment with a touch of class and yet affordable. There's is also a sense of security within and outside. The Staff exudes confidence, passion and genuineness in their various responsibilities and their duty posts. Generally, friendly environment.
