Stayed at the Connaught Hotel for two nights with my mother recently. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't do enough for us. Our room was in the Lodge, a short walk from the main hotel. Lovely big bathroom with double shower and very comfortable beds. We were on the 2nd floor which meant trips up and down in... More

The bed was very comfortable. The room was a... More

Booked in for three nights for a conference in the BIC easy walking distance to the sea and town centre. Stayed on the third floor of the lodge - room spacious and clean but a little noisy by the road and the lift was very small. That didn't distract from the facilities and excellent service. Food in the bar was... More

We had a lovely time at the Hotel. Lily Room was very nice especially with the large bathroom and whirl bath. Breakfast was excellent and dinner in Blake's was a very high standard. Liked it so much we have booked to go back on 18 Aug for 4 nights to see Bournmouth's Air Show.

The hotel was very clean and the towels and linen were changed every day. Not too far to the shopping centre but if you have walking difficulties, a taxi ride is approx £8. The Lodge is next to The Best Western Hotel and the facilities of their swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi can be used, also their exercise room facilities.
