I simply cannot fault this Hotel. We have stayed there twice in the last 12 months and the experience has been first class on both occasions. Located a short walk from the beach and town centre, you'll find everything you need here. The staff are fantastic, always greeting us with a smile, the food is to die for, the brasserie... More

Our standard room although on the small side was adeqate, clean and tidy. The spa/pool was great. The breakfast experience was very good, we were seated quickly and offered tea/coffee and toast straight away. The selection... More

We booked this hotel having read reviews on trip advisor, and where not disappointed. We stayed Easter Sunday for one night as we were in Bournemouth for the James Blunt concert at BIC, the hotel was just a short walk away, which was perfect. We stayed in a top floor room with balcony, the room was a little on the... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and professional. Breakfast was delicious, with a wide choice of options to choose from. Dinner was also to a high standard. The staff's willingness to accommodate our dietary requirements made the stay more relaxing. We had a wonderful time!

I bought my mum and I a spa pass for Mother's Day at The Connaught. The staff were wonderfully attentive, and the spa facilities were brilliant. Everywhere was clean and all details were explained once we got there. The only annoying factor was that we had to get out of wet swimwear to go upstairs to the restaurant for lunch... More

We spent one night here. We were out on Saturday evening and got back to the hotel at 9.30 and wondered if we would be able to have a light meal.

Spent a few days here for our anniversary. Very clean and well presented hotel with plenty of pleasant, efficient and attentive staff. Decent sized room with all you will need (or if not staff will sort it).
