We have stayed in Bournemouth a number of times over the years. There are lot of hotels to chose from , most of which don’t leave much of an impression.
We booked a two night stay and came across the Connaught which turned out to be a good find.
The hotel is presented well, room although a “standard double” was clean, tidy and had everything you would expect.
The pool was a real plus, so many hotel pools are too small to be of any use but this is a really good size, also has a sauna and steam room plus spa type treatments are available.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night , planning to go out the second night. In fact the meal was very good and we decided to eat there again and were equally impressed.
Finally the breakfast was also pretty good.
Next time , I will book the Connaught and skip the others
The only downside is the parking, Friday was ok but Saturday was a bit crazy and there is not enough spaces. I did manage to get a space in the car park but others didn’t , one guy I spoke to had to pay to park elsewhere and pay for it. There was quite a bit of moaning about it. As I say, it didn’t affect me but thought it worth mentioning. less
