After an hour or so searching for a hotel for us to stay at in Bournemouth we decided to chose 'The Connaught Lodge' its part of ' The Connaught Hotel' but is in a separate building just through a courtyard or across the car park. When we arrived the gentleman at reception welcomed us, checked us in and told us... More

I booked this hotel on very short notice and got the last room. I picked it because of the proximity to the beach, town centre and the fact it had a pool. Check in is at 3pm but we arrived about 11:40am as we wanted to park up and go to the beach. I went to the reception area just... More

Me and my partner stayed here for one night as we had a wedding to attend to. When we got into bed we found it very hot, opened a window but I'm afraid that didn't help. We were in and out of sleep and were very tired the next morning other than that breakfast was good.

Many thanks for taking the trouble to write your review Samantha and apologies for the heat - it's that time of the year again and in common with most of the hotels in Bournemouth we don't have A/C. We have, however, just applied a sun reflector to all the South facing windows in the Lodge and it has made a... More

My friend and I stayed in a room for two nights on the 3rd floor of The Connaught Lodge and the room was comfortable, clean and a good size. Although not connected to the main hotel it didn't cause any problems and was a very short walk across a lovely courtyard. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. We spent... More

We stayed in the Connaught Lodge during an overnight stay in Bournemouth after attending a concert at the BIC. It was in an excellent position for our needs, the room was extremely comfortable, and the breakfast superb. The staff were all quietly efficient, and the decor and public rooms were lovely. If we visited Bournemouth again in the future, this... More

Good sized room. We got into our room at 11.15am as we arrived very early. We were in the lodge (2nd floor) overlooking the garden between the lodge and the main hotel - so nice and quiet. Breakfast was good and the service was excellent. We sat outside which made for a lovely leisurely breakfast in the sunshine. Room was... More

Stayed for one night in June. Good location, reception was good and they were very professional, room was very comfortable and clean, hotel was clean and very well maintained. The Spa was good with helpful staff but did not have swimming costume dryers or bags which meant you had to carry your wet swimwear back to your room. Robes were... More

We spent two nights at Connaught Lodge which is part of the the Hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and helped to make my wife's birthday special. We were a little concerned prior to arriving as having stayed in a Best Western previously in London which wasn't great, but the Connaught is superb. The breakfast has lots of... More
