We absolutely loved this hotel. The location is ideal, only 5 minutes walk to the beach and about 15 minutes walk to the pier and then the shopping centre. They have a lovely swimming pool, which is perfect for a quick dip before breakfast (something I quickly got used to doing!)
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at The Connaught. I am a fussy vegetarian and the breakfast selection even had vegetarian sausages and soya milk available to order, a pleasant surprise and a highly unusual touch! Very good breakfast buffet.
Reception were friendly and courteous, with good knowledge of the local area.
The room we stayed in was large and tastefully decorated, with tea and coffee making facilites, as well as some Sky TV (what more could you ask for!)
Parking at the hotel was easy, although we were worried about this prior to visiting due to some negative reviews from previous guests.
There is even a fantastic Indian restaurant within walking distance to this hotel!
It was our first trip to Bournemouth and definitely won't be our last. We will be visiting this hotel again, hopefully soon :o)
