Celebrate your special occasion in our AA Rosette restaurant



As well as a full lunch and dinner service in The Connaught Brasserie, our hotel is also the ideal venue if you’re looking for private dining rooms in Bournemouth. From corporate entertaining and wedding breakfasts, to private celebrations and sit-down dinners of a discreet nature.

Private dining at The Connaught Hotel and Spa Bournemouth allows our guests to dine in intimacy, while simultaneously enjoying the same flavoursome 4 star cuisine that our main hotel guests experience.

The Franklyn Suite

The Franklyn Suite can accommodate up to 90 guests for private dinners and is located within The Connaught Lodge, next door to the main hotel, meaning that you’ll have a little more privacy.

From charity galas and lavish leaving dos, to celebrating 60 years as a titan of industry. Whatever the occasion for your corporate function, we’ll make sure the night goes off without a hitch. Be it an elegant drinks reception with canapés or a formal meal among colleagues.
