attended a fitness weekend with 50 people the hotel is lovely.the rooms are clean and the staff so attentive without being obtrusive As a person with dietary needs I often have a struggle with the menus and the options I'm offered are not always very good. No problems here the food was excellent and my every need was catered for

It was probably the best spa day I've been on in terms of the overall experience. Especially value for money. The pool area was clean and relaxing, the massage was perfect and the lunch was really tasty, each of us said we would have paid the full amount just for the lunch alone. I am already planning to go back!... More

Let's start at the beginning. Getting there is a bit of a nightmare as there were loads of roadworks, and it's at the top of a very steep hill for cars. There was a quicker pedestrian way but it's good walk to the Beach/Town so no good for people with mobility difficulties. Check-in, very quick and efficient, given plenty of... More

Delighted you enjoyed your stay Vicki and thank you for your lovely review. Just a small correction - being a C19th hotel, the rooms in the Lodge are not standard box rooms but they are of varying sizes and shapes and they are all classified as standard rooms!!

Husband and I were looking for a last minute place to stay, when we decided to visit family in Bournemouth. Having been to Bournemouth a number of times and stayed in a number of hotels, I can honestly say that the Connaught Lodge will be our first choice from now on.

I stayed here for a night on a business trip in the main hotel. On arrival I was asked to pay up-front for the room which was an unexpected request. On entering my room - this was at 8 in the evening - I found all the windows open, presumably to air it. It was a cold night and I... More
