Our Bournemouth Christmas party nights are suitable for groups of up to 120 guests and include a delicious festive three course menu prepared by our talented team of award-winning 2 AA Rosette chefs.
Our Christmas party nights include an evening of entertainment with our resident DJ and disco until 12.30am.
You’ll have your own dedicated events manager, named place cards and personalised table plans and menus.

If you’re having a large Christmas do with over 50 guests, then our Franklyn Suite or Connaught Suite are the perfect Christmas party venues for you.
Both rooms are perfect for a work Christmas party, with their modern décor and access to private courtyards,
The Franklyn Suite is located in The Connaught Lodge, a separate building next door to the main hotel, away from holidaying guests. With its own private entrance and bar, this Christmas party venue offers a little more privacy and exclusivity to your occasion.
Smaller Christmas parties are held in Blakes, an elegant room with stunning chandeliers and direct access to our courtyard garden.
We reserve the right to cancel any Christmas party or change the function room according to final numbers up to 30 days before the event.
For private Christmas parties (minimum 50 guests), speak to our team about any little extras you might like such as midnight bacon butties, cheese platters or a photobooth.

Back again for another amazing Christmas break at this beautifully refurbished hotel, it’s like a home away from home. Amazing food, amazing staff who looked after my family and me fabulously. A special thank you has to go to Elkin who looked after us fantastically and the amazing pastry chef who made some amazing gluten free treats. The count down is on till we are back again I can’t wait.
Wow, what can I say, what a wonderful hotel and what a wonderful Xmas experience. Room came complete with some beautiful touches such as oranges, chocolates and a touching card signed by all the staff. The food and service as others have said was top notch, and totally flawless in every respect. A brilliant disco with one of the most entertaining DJs I've seen for a long time. Well done, absolutely amazing, thank you all. Regards Darren & Patricia (Room 206)
