Weekend by the sea
Comfy beds, clean rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast, nice spa area, conveniently located. Especially great: Bar area, gin selection and daily gin happy hour Suggestions for improvement: Bathrobes, replace sliding door to bathroom in the room (not sound proof, noisy to open and close waking the other person), review water quality in whirlpool (didn‘t look appealing) Overall lovely weekend trip. Would recommend and return.

Well located for BIC events.
We booked this hotel as we were going to a concert at the Bournemouth International Centre. It was very conveniently located, approx 10 minutes walk away. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and breakfast plentiful. The only possible negative would be that there is limited parking.

Fantastic hotel
This was a fantastic hotel and every aspect of our stay was excellent. The selection and quality of food at breakfast was really good. A great location too as it was only 5-10 mins walk to the sea.

Frequent visitor...
This was my fourth visit to the Connaught, so it must do something right, and my return is mainly due to the location and excellent pool and gym facilities. The public spaces are well maintained and airy, but the rooms are a bit tired, and albeit visiting in extra hot weather a better way of cooling the room than a small desktop fan should be found. Breakfast is substantial, but this was the second visit where panic in the serving staff leads to unreasonably long queues, and there is never an excuse for tables not to be cleared promptly. This is a management of staff issue rather than number of staff. Overall despite hiccoughs, and being more expensive than it justifies, I will probably visit for a fifth time.

Love the hotel staff are lovely it’s our getaway place to be
Sean, gb1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Small room with smallest double bed I have ever seen in a hotel. TV at an angle on its bracket and bathroom door did not close properly. Room was hot with only a fan to cool . No sure it was good value for money, on the plus side the pool was fine and breakfast was good.
