Short break
My patner and I checked into the Connaught Lodge for short mid-week break. There isn't much room to maneouvre in the car park, but as we didn't go further than the beach or town centre (both in ten minutes easy walk away) that didn't really matter. The outside of the Lodge building (seperate from but adjacent to the main hotel, where all the amenities are located) looked a little tired but it was clean and serviceable enough inside. Comfort wise, the bed was actually two singles pushed together with an extra large sheet and duvet. The individual mattresses were OK, but there was an uncomfortable ridge where they met. I can't fault their service though. There were a couple of minor faults in the room, but when reported on their WhatsApp service, they were attended to extremely promptly, and a request for some more milk was answered within 5 minutes!! Based on the location and the service we would happily stay here again for another visit to Bournemouth.

Great location, comfy bed, annoying access cards!
The room was compact, but had everything you needed in it ( apart from an iron which you need to borrow from reception), the bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. The bathroom has a sink that made gurgling noises for a long time after use and a toilet with a weak flush. We had issues with our key card access throughout our stay, constantly having to have them reactivated ( and never keeping well HRM by our phones!) The pool was clean and never busy, the breakfast had a wide variety of options. The location was brilliant, close to everything in a short walking distance.
