we stayed at the Connaught a couple of years ago and again last week, it was lovely we had a standard room and was very comfortable and nice fluffy towels in our bathroom which has a good shower. All the staff were great and very professional, they were all dressed impeccably, also very friendly, even the house staff. We had dinner on Saturday night and the food was lovely, we had fillet steak and dessert, we are not big eaters so didn't experience the starters but they did look lovely. Thank you to all at the Connaught and we will return next time we visit Bournemouth.
Cant wait !!

Room Tip: we had room 32 on the 2nd floor serviced by a lift, so no worries with luggage, warm and comfortable...

On an overnight stay on business in Bournemouth, I can heartily recommend The Connaught Hotel.
The service was excellent, the staff polite and helpful and the room well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast is always of particular interest to me and was excellent with a everything you could possibly want.

I did not have time to use the spa unfortunately, so cannot comment.

All round an excellent stay.

We had stayed here for a night between Christmas and New Year, and decided to have another winter break. The hotel was all that we expected of a Best Western, The room was quite a good size, excellent wet room. The breakfast was excellent, a full buffet including a traditional eggs bacon etc. Staff were friendly and helpful,and location handy for beach or town. The pool and sauna were a bonus

My husband and I really enjoyed four very comfortable nights in a standard double room at the Connaught at the end of February. The staff were always helpful and courteous, with a full and competent management team. The breakfasts and lounge bar meals were excellent. Everywhere was clean, tidy and the atmosphere relaxing. Thank you, Connaught Hotel.

Booked the hotel as close to BIC. Wanted a pool and a good review. We had double superior room which was well equiped and very clean. All staff we met were very professional. Used the pool twice which was nice and warm, good changing rooms, sanua and steam room. Although we did not need the other services they were as good. The breakfast choice was by far the widest selection I have every seen. All very tasty. The Service in the dining room was top notch.
The bed was very comfortable. We wanted a short break 3 days, had ticket for a show which I want to go to without driving. We also wanted to relax and recharge. I was very pleased with my choice. I would happerly recommend the Connaught in Bournemouth and thank them all for pleasent stay.

If you re worried about the food, service or cleanliness at this hotel please dont its all very good.
Have just returned from a four night stay which we enjoyed very much.
Our room was well decorated with up to date colours and carpet.
Very, very clean and tidy.
Plenty of storage space in modern furniture in good condition, hair dryer that works well in the drawer
The bed was very comfortable. The shower spotless every day, good function, nice shampoo/shower gel and body lotion supplied.
Spare balnkets and pillows supplied if required but lovely and warm even in this recent cold weather.
Up to date TV, easy to operate.
Very, very nice restaurant presided over by the excellent NIck old fashioned service with a smile, very efficient and professional.
Kind and attentive to everyone without getting on your nerves, well done.
Ate here for two evenings, food excellent, lovely atmosphere, white tableclothes and chandeliers if you fancy it ,or in the bar if you prefer. Busy because its good, probably a good idea to let staff know if you want a restaurant table.
Breakfasts were fruits yoghurts toast, home made danish pastries, even the raspberry jam in the pastries was hame made I think, full excellent english breakfasts, buffet style but served to you so no drips of baked beans in the scrambled eggs! My husband also tried the haddock and kippers with poached eggs on request said they were lovely too.
Reception and other shared areas, very good, staff lovely.
No problems parking during our stay.
Postion good central for sea and town but not noisy.
All in all couldn't ask for more, if you want a relaxing comfortable stay in a hotel with good old fashioned service and excellent food go ahead and book.
Dont worry about it.

Room Tip: Shower only in our room, best to request when booking if particularly need a bath
