We stayed at The Connaught Lodge for the first time and we extremely impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff and relaxed atmosphere.
We had a 3rd floor room which was light and reasonably spacious with a clean and modern bathroom with good toiletries. Wifi was perfect both on phone and tablet. The usual tea/coffee- making facilities, good size TV, hair-dryer and a fan. Fairly centrally located, 4/5 minutes from the sea. Perfect for nice walks and exploring Bournemouth. We had not trouble finding parking space within the hotel each evening.

Excellent breakfast, with a good range of options in the restaurant. In the evenings, there is the option of very good, well-presented food from either the restaurant or brasserie which has a bar and a spacious lounge area.
We have used the indoor swimming-pool, which was of a good lenght plus steam-room, jacuzzi and sauna. Also there was separate cardio and weight-training gym.
In all, we found the hotel with a happy and friendly atmosphere, which made for a good value and enjoyable short break. We strongly recommend the hotel and certainly intend to stay there again.
