Frequent visitor...
This was my fourth visit to the Connaught, so it must do something right, and my return is mainly due to the location and excellent pool and gym facilities. The public spaces are well maintained and airy, but the rooms are a bit tired, and albeit visiting in extra hot weather a better way of cooling the room than a small desktop fan should be found. Breakfast is substantial, but this was the second visit where panic in the serving staff leads to unreasonably long queues, and there is never an excuse for tables not to be cleared promptly. This is a management of staff issue rather than number of staff. Overall despite hiccoughs, and being more expensive than it justifies, I will probably visit for a fifth time.

Fair 4,0
Small room with smallest double bed I have ever seen in a hotel. TV at an angle on its bracket and bathroom door did not close properly. Room was hot with only a fan to cool . No sure it was good value for money, on the plus side the pool was fine and breakfast was good.

disappointing
Stayed one night booking three rooms with friends celebrating birthdays. Staff requested up-front payment for room which I have never experienced for a four star hotel. Rooms small for such a ridiculously high price. Hotel next to building site, small car park. Communal rooms spacious but tired. Don't expect smiling bar service after 11.30 pm as night porter not exactly customer friendly. All in all OK but totally overpriced and service leaving a lot to be desired.

Lovely hotel with good facilities & great location
Great night's stay at the Connaught. Good service, food and great evening entertainment. Enjoyed the spa facilities and the location is perfect for both the beach and shopping! Room was clean and presentable although maybe a little more attention to detail would be apreciated for the rate (i.e. new toilet seat didn't fit the toilet properly) but that's just me being very fussy. Overall, highly recommended for a good hotel in a central Bournemoouth area with the bonus of parking.
