The public areas of the hotel are lovely and furnished to a high standard. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. I had planned a two night stay but sadly my single room was too small and uncomfortable I therefore didn't stay the following day as planned and was given a refund without any fuss. Parking... More

The location of the hotel was brilliant. Near to beach and centre of Bournemouth. The interior was very clean and beautifully decorated. The spa area was lovely and the pool a good size. The staff were exceptionally polite and very friendly. The food in the main restaurant and Brasserie was very good. In fact we complimented the chef personally. The... More

Delighted you had such a lovely birthday weekend with your sister Felicity and we thank you very much for your super review. The lodge is now fully refurbished but being next door the rates are less expensive and it affords a little more privacy. I do hope we have the pleasure of another birthday celebration - perhaps yours!! Best wishes... More

This hotel just gets better and better. I've stayed at the Connaught on a few occasions now and I really look forward to going back each time.

The Conought oases professionalism from the moment you walk through the main entrance. The service and staff are excellent. Dinner in the restaurant is wonderfull , the food and choice and value are excellent. The food in the brasserie is of the same high standard with less formal service, exactly what is requiered in a brasserie. The Spar is top... More

Visted for our honeymoon. Really lovely hotel. All the staff were very helpful and the spa was lovely. We didnt have dinner in the hotel but breakfast was very good. The only problem we had was lack of parking spaces. On occasions we had to wait for a car to leave before we could park.

We stayed in the Connaught hotel last weekend we have been here many times and it is always brilliant. We booked a room with a balcony and as the weather was so hot we were able to keep the door open at night to let in some cool air. The staff as always were friendly and welcoming. The spa is...
