This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing time away, it is beautifully decorated with modern bedrooms, spa and pool. But what makes this hotel so excellent is the wonderful service of the staff from reception to Peter at the breakfast bar, very professional and delightful, an asset to the hotel.

What we liked most about this hotel was the staff and especially the staff in the breakfast room, they were so nice, so efficient and so helpful. Nothing seemed to be any trouble for them and we looked forward every morning to sit down and have breakfast. (Also the other members of the staff were very nice but we did... More

We stayed here as a family, two double rooms and a twin room, celebrating Anniversary's and Birthday. The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable. The staff were very helpful and attentive.

The following applies to room 225 at the Connaught Lodge. Comments from other residents imply that it also applies to some other rooms; I don't know how many. - For some reason, the bedroom and storage area are split, with curtains only across the space between them, so anyone can look in on the storage (dressing) area from outside. Not... More

Our fault entirely John and once again our sincere apologies for your poor experience. You booked a single room at £53 per night and reception upgraded you to a double bedroom albeit with a small shower room thinking you would be more comfortable. This is generally well received but clearly not for you – sorry!! You may be pleased to... More

The Connaught Lodge and Hotel was a great place to stay - a lucky choice, as there are so many hotels in Bournemouth to choose from. Well located, easy access to the beach and walks along the promenade, as well as easy walking distance into town centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful from start to finish.
