We have just returned from a Christmas break at the Connaught and I can only decribe it as one of the best Christmas breaks, we have had for a long time. The staff without exception, were courteous, friendly and professional. The food was of a very high calibre and the only complaint was my wife and I put on weight!. The entertainment was very good and it was good to see so many people having a good time. The only small complaint I have, was we ordered the standard room and it was a bit small, next time we will go up one to the superior. Well done everyone!

Room Tip: go for superior rooms

I traveled here alone while attending a friend's birthday party and my stay was outstanding. This is a fantastic hotel with a wonderful, attentive staff, very nice bar area and wonderful restaurant. The man who manages the food service is fantastic. The sausages at breakfast were out of this world. The hotel is a couple of blocks walk to the beach, shops and local pubs. Very clean rooms with modern amenities provided great sleeping, too. I highly recommend this hotel!

The room was beautifully clean, all the staff were so friendly and really made me feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant serves food that could be on Masterchef Professional. Creative but above all delicious food and not overly pricey. Faultless stay and I didn't even get a chance to try the leisure facilities!!!! Would highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at The Connaught for two nights in early December as we were in Bournemouth for two concerts at the Bournemouth International Centre. The hotel is ideally situated for the BIC and is a pleasant stroll from the town centre. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the staff, without exception, were cheerful, friendly and polite; an absolute credit to the hotel. We will definitely stay at The Connaught when we visit Bournemouth again.
