    We really were surprised how good this lodge was. We were expecting it to be sub standard but it was excellent value. All staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was excellent and the quality of ingredients were the best not like many hotels who dish out low standard cheap sausages and cheap yoghurt etc..... I will recommend it to all my friends and I am very raely impressed but with this hotel I was very impressed. Gordon (oxfordshire)

    l liked the fact that nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The room was clean. The food was very good. l will definately use this hotel again.

    The only suggestion is maybe a smaller coffee cup for after dinner.

    The best feature of the Connaught ( as a b and b guest) is the quality of the breakfasts and the quiet pleasant friendly service of the restaurant staff.

    Clean and comfortable. Good sized double room, everything accommodated for. Comfortable clean bed, and nice clean bathroom.

    This is Mrs McKenna doing this survey. I do have a few cleaning issues with the lodge but it would not put me off returning there.

    Clean comfortable room and considerate service

    Main entrance door to the Lodge was a little tricky - but got it in the end!

    The food, staff and decor of the hotel were all of an excellant standard and on departure, I took the opportunity to tell the manager this which he appreciated

    The only thing and this is a minor point, was the piped music in the public areas such as the bar and resturant. The music seamed to be Jazz type and did not fit in with the surroundings. Cut the music and everything would be just perfect.

    Location was perfect for town and bic. Lots of free car parking.

    Uncomfortable bed and public area's needed a good hoover!

    All staff were very pleasant and helpful, leisure facilities were good, restaurant food was to a very high standard Only let down was that the bed was like sleeping on a marshmallow and had lost rigidness to sides and the bathroom well good job me and my partner are not big as in both under 32" waist as we would never have fitted in there!!! Hence me showering at the leisure centre. Good location to town (10 min Walk) and seafront.

    The Bathroom... See above!

    Great location a short walk from the beach and Bournemouth centre. Friendly staff and same day room maintenance replaced a faulty showerhead. Good breakfast options that should suit everyone.

    Rooms in need of a refit. Bed was lumpy and the sliding door to the toilet offered very little privacy

    Extremely friendly helpful staff. Relaxing atmosphere nothing is too much trouble, to help you enjoy your stay. I unfortunately was unwell the Hotel were exceptional in helping me with the Emergency services. Through a very anxious experience. The Hotel Managers, Leisure manager all were caring and very kind, to myself and my mother. I can't thank them enough. I would recommend anybody if unfortunately, any geust became unwell, do not worry as this Hotel bend over backwards to help us. Thank-you so much...

    Great position, very handy for the beach,town and bus routes. Breakfast was excellent and the staff very friendly. The room was a good size .

    Nothing to dislike, only slight negative the bed was a little lumpy.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The hotel had plenty of parking, even when busy. The staff were very polite and helpful and the hotel seemed to take service and staff very seriously. Breakfast was very well organised with a good selection of decent quality food and choice. Breakfast staff were very efficient and attentive. The pool and gym facilites were very good with excellent opening hours - 6am til 10pm, so you can always fit in a swim at your convenience. Location of the hotel was really good too, with access to the sea front just a short walk away (2 or 3 mins). Overall a very pleasant stay.

    Rooms were adequate but not luxurious. The room we stayed in had a conservatory type extension on the back of it, which was glazed all around with a plastic roof. This roof was very noisy one night when we had a heavy rainstorm. It was so loud that we had to put subtitles on the televison as we could not hear it without putting the volume up to a high level (which might have upset other guests). This plastic roof also made the room very hot and created a kind of green house effect in the daytime. The hotel is also on the west top of the cliff (as the address suggests), which isn't a problem for most, but may be slightly harder work for elderly, unfit or disabled people to get access to the beach easily. There is a cliff lift however, to help people get down if needed on the route to the beach.
