We stayed lodge room 215 last week. The hotel is obviously newly decorated and refurbished and looks lovely. The staff were all smart, friendly and very helpful. Our room in the lodge was a little on the small side but had everything in it that you would need, including an electric fan. The bathroom, however, was the smallest bathroom I... More

My husband & I booked to stay in Bournemouth for our wedding anniversary. We usually stay at The Royal Bath but there reviews since De Vere sold up are awful so we decided to try somewhere else... I'm so glad we did. The Connaught is ideally located for both the town & the seafront. Parking is free although the spaces... More

Stayed just the one night as attending a concert at the International Centre. This Hotel is a very short walk away from this venue , the seafront and the town centre. Set just one street away from the beach, this Hotel, the Lodge , is an annexe to the Connaught Hotel itself and shares the reception , restaurant and facilities... More

We've stayed here twice. In our view it's the best of the mid range hotels in Bournemouth (we've stayed at many other hotels). The staff are friendly and efficient, the rooms clean and well presented and the families, particularly the spa, good. The hotel is 5 minutes from the sea and 10 minutes from the centre of town. Overall, the... More

Enjoyed our stay here with the added comfort of a full range of spa treatments, swimming pool, jacuzzi, etc. Room was pleasant although the bathroom was let's say compact! Blake restaurant was very good for breakfast although the tea and coffee took an eternity to arrive at our table. On the whole, a very nice stay. Would recommend and revisit.

We stayed at The Connaught Lodge for the first time and we extremely impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff and relaxed atmosphere.

Very welcoming staff at reception with clean but snug rooms. We stayed in the lodge and had breakfast in the courtyard. The Bar had just introduced cocktails which were very nice. Unfortunately didn't manage to try the pool & spa but other guests we spoke to said it was lovely.
