I would first like to say that the staff at the Connaught are truly outstanding and the management should be very proud on how customer focused and how genuinely concerned that guests have an enjoyable stay, well done to them. Accommodation - The Lodge clearly has the AA Four Star plaque displayed outside , if the Lodge is four star... More

We booked this hotel for one night as we were visiting our daughter in hospital who had just given birth to her first child. When checking the hotel on line the reviews and photo,s were very good but a little misleading. I can't see how it could be called an hotel as all of the amenities are situated in the... More

Many thanks for the review Paul and in particular for the review on the Best Western Connaught Hotel. I'm sorry you didn't like the Lodge but it is clearly marketed as a a separate building with all the facilities located next door and, as a result, is priced at a discount of approximately 15%. The rooms in the Lodge have... More

Wanted to book The Connaught but, sadly, it was full so we ended up next door. The Connaught Lodge really does feel second class compared to the main hotel as all facilities are in the Connaught proper which is just a short stroll away but would be a real pain on a cold winter's day in the rain. Our room,... More

Apologies you didn't find the Lodge accommodation to your liking Paul. We are a town house hotel in the centre of Bournemouth so the views are of surrounding buildings not, unfortunately of the sea!! We don't have bins on that side of the hotel so not sure where the noise came from but apologies for the early morning disruption. Best... More

From the moment we crossed the threshold of the hotel and during our stay we were made welcome by all members of staff who we came in contact with. The atmosphere of the hotel was very calm and all the staff, without execption, were very professional and pleased to serve us. Dinner menu in the Blake Restaurant was superb and... More

Having stayed at the Best Western Connaught Hotel for one night last year, we returned for three nights this time staying in the Connaught Lodge adjacent to the main hotel. Our generous sized room was well presented and very clean and comfortable. We made use of the pool, sauna and steam room which were great. The breakfast was plentiful and... More

Four of us stayed for three nights at the Connaught in August and the standard of service and comfort was excellent. This was a return visit so we knew it would be good. Again we stayed in the Lodge, a short walk across the courtyard, which is fine but not really suitable for the disabled. There is a lift in... More

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
