Bournemouth Hotel with Swimming Pool

Spend a little time floating away in our inviting swimming pool, heated to a toasty 28°c. Then chill out with the massage jets of our Jacuzzi, which sits at a tropical 37°c.

Or perhaps you’d prefer to lie back on one of our poolside loungers or melt away in our sauna and eucalyptus infused steam room.

We’re in an ideal location if you’re looking for a swimming pool in Bournemouth town centre – we’re just a five minute walk away from the town centre and only a few minutes from the beach.

If you’ve had a hard day or you’ve worked up a sweat in our high-tech gym, the swimming pool is the perfect place to go. Add in a spa treatment, a delicious meal in our AA Rosette restaurant or a few drinks The Connaught Gin Bar afterwards, and you have what is pretty much the perfect day!

If you’re a hotel guest or Bluewater Spa member, you could be enjoying this life seven days a week! We also offer day passes if you’re looking for a morning or afternoon of pure relaxation.

Call us biased, but from all the hotels in Bournemouth with a swimming pool, ours is a winning choice.

For Hotel Guests

If you’re looking for swimming pools in Bournemouth hotels, look no further!

Our swimming pool is FREE for all our hotel guests and there’s no need to book a time slot. Simply head downstairs, get changed into your swimming gear and away you go!

Choosing a hotel with a pool is a great idea for many reasons. Maybe you want to feel energised when you wake up, in which case you can head down to the swimming pool and do a few lengths before breakfast.

Perhaps you want to work up an appetite before you enjoy a hearty dinner in The Connaught Brasserie, and in that case, head to the swimming pool and enjoy a dip!

Or, maybe it’s raining and your plans for the day have gone awry – enjoy a relaxing hour in the swimming pool instead! Choosing a hotel with a swimming pool gives you flexibility in your plans.

Perhaps the beach isn’t your favourite place or again, maybe the weather has taken a turn. With us, it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining, snowing, or blowing a gale, our luxury Bournemouth swimming pool is always there for you to pretend you’re in the middle of a heatwave!


Sauna and Steam Room

Our sauna and steam room are a real treat, as you’d expect from the best swimming pool in Bournemouth!

Sweat out all your stress and get rid of toxins at the same time. You’ll feel fantastic at the end and you’ll probably end up having one of the best night’s sleep ever too! We have a double sauna and steam room for you to enjoy, then cool off in the swimming pool afterwards.

Did you know that spending time in a sauna or steam room is actually super-beneficial for your health? Steam rooms in particular are known to help boost cardiovascular health, improve circulation, reduce blood pressure and basically give you a healthier heart picture.

That’s impressive on its own, but saunas and steam rooms can also help to promote healing if you have skin tissue injuries. Our sauna is certainly a healthy treat and one that will leave you feeling totally blissed out afterwards.
