We stayed here as we were attending a concert at the BIC. It was a great location as was only a 5/10 min walk away. Our room was not massive but was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was excellent and could not be faulted. Fresh flowers on the tables and excellent service all added to the experience. The spa was... More

Stayed here for a fitness weekend so there was about 40 of us. Rooms and all areas of the hotel, including the bar, were very pleasant. All food (meals were included in our package) was very nice and the breakfast selection especially nice to wake up to. Will certainly return as loved Bournemouth - it has everything you need for...

Very satisfactory stay at this Hotel. Convenient for the Conference centre. Spotlessly clean. Friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast excellent - plenty of choice. Well cooked and hot. Brasserie food was very good - again, fresh and hot, with limited choices, but all looked great. Parking not a problem. All round good stay.

This was the second time we have stayed at the Connaught and it was every bit as good as the first. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are lovely and clean, the spa is relaxing and the restaurant is amazing. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We have visited this hotel several times and obviously like it as we keep going back. The location is great as it is a short walk to the beach or into the town. Staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is clean and well kept. We have stayed in the main hotel and the lodge next door and both... More

Breakfast in courtyard and staff attended immediately and were all very friendly. Buffet style breakfast, that is dishes up for you. Rooms are nice, with plenty of room and... More

Wonderful 80th birthday surprise stay. Hotel staff and facilities were excellent. The food in Blake's restaurant was so good we ate there both evenings and the restaurant manager really looked after us.
