For many guests our Christmas and New Year breaks are an annual event – not to be missed so we encourage you to secure your place early to avoid disappointment.
One night stop over at the Connaught Hotel and we had a great stop over from the moment we arrived to leaving. Facilities were excellent and the room was clean and tidy plus all staff helpful. I used the gym and the pool on both days and will definitely come back again when in Bournemouth.
Connaught hotel visit
I cannot express what a lovely weekend we had here! Staff went out of their way to help, clean, even the wardrobes inside were scented for clothes and the toilet roll was 3 ply!! No scrimping here! Every last detail was great, wonderful breakfast... the spa was amazing!!! Don’t know what else to say 11/10
We attended a function at Connaught Hotel in October and had such a lovely weekend that we booked again to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. The staff were polite and helpful overall a fab weekend
Booked 2 twin rooms Oma bed and breakfast basis for myself and 3 collegues. Very clean, relaxing hotel, bar food very good, swimming pool and gym very good. Staff very helpful. Will stay again when next in bournmouth.
Great business trip
Short break for my wife’s birthday, weather was good so able to see Bournemouth at its best. This is a good hotel, quiet location but only a short walk to the beach and the park. Food was good, service was friendly and efficient. Didn’t have time to try the spa facilities but they did look very good. Would recommend this hotel to couples needing to “recharge” the batteries, nice relaxing break.
Stylish hotel in central location
Great staff, great service. A relaxing 2.5 day mid-week break with a baby. Huge full English breakfast, pleasant bar and places to relax. Spa massage very good. Superior room just big enough with baby (cot provided). Weather very hot and no a/con upstairs in larger rooms, but windows open all night and still quiet. Easy 7 min stroll with pushchair to cliff-top lift down to promenade. Bournemouth was a surprisingly good short-break with a great atmosphere.
Excellent Service and most relaxing
