Our Bournemouth Christmas party nights are suitable for 6-120 guests and include a delicious festive three course menu prepared by our talented team of AA Rosette chefs.

On Fridays and Saturdays our Christmas party nights include an evening of entertainment with our resident DJ and disco until 12.30am.

Entertainment is also available for midweek Christmas parties when there’s 60 guests or more.

If you’re having a large Christmas do with over 50 guests, then you’ll love our Franklyn Suite or Connaught Suite.

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 venue offers a little more privacy and exclusivity to your Christmas party.

Smaller Christmas parties are held in Blakes, an elegant room with stunning chandeliers and direct access to our courtyard garden.
