Booked this hotel for a one-night stay as we were going to a show at the BIC. Wish we could have stayed longer! The room was very comfortable and clean with good bathroom facilities and lovely fluffy towels (which were actually big enough to call a bath towel). The spa had a good sized swimming pool with jacuzzi plus a... More

An immaculate friendly hotel conviently located close to the centre of Bournemouth. The staff were attentive and eager to please. The decor was pleasant modern and clean. Breakfast was fine and we were able to obtain unsweetened soya milk for our cereals. The hotel was busy during our visit and parking spaces became full although we managed to get a... More

Really enjoyed a weekend break at The Connaught. We were going to the BIC which is only a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel so very convenient. Lovely clean, comfortable room, very nice homely feel to the bar. Didn't experience the restaurant for dinner as there were Christmas parties going on both nights. Breakfast, although perfectly cooked, was slightly under-whelming... More

The Connaught Hotel is better even, than we expected. We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. All the staff are attentive, interested and efficient. They seem pleased to be there. They seem please that we are there. I cannot pick out anyone specially as the were all equally charming and efficient; the “feel good factor” begins at the reception desk. Complimentary... More

This is our second stay with The Connaught Hotel. Both times have been excellent. All staff are pleasant and courteous. The rooms have been very inviting and immaculate. We will definitely use this hotel again in the future.

Friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable room, excellent breakfast. Only 10 minute walk to town centre. Overall a lovely hotel to stay at. Even though there was a function going on at the hotel we weren't disturbed by loud music or late night party goers!

I've been a regular guest at the Connaught for the past 16 years and my enjoyment shows no sign of diminishing. The Hotel is always immaculately turned out; the staff always polite and keen to help. Comfortable rooms, splendid Leisure complex and cracking breakfast. Well done to David and his team. See you in 2015. GL

The hotel is very comfortable, nicely furnished throughout and to a high standard. The pool and spa facilities were excellent and again very well maintained. Breakfast was very good and the dining room was immaculate. Will be looking no further when staying in Bournemouth again.

Brilliant exceptional service at reception warm friendly atmosphere. Brilliant service and food all the staff including house keeping were polite friendly and helpful. We wouldn't consider staying at any other hotel. When we return to Bounemouth it will always be the Connaught.
