A wonderful venue for a wedding
Venue Service

By Unswortf, on 14 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 11 Jan 2020

Our Daughter's wedding was held at this lovely venue on Saturday. The rooms were lovely and clean, quiet and very comfortable. There is a wonderful warm family atmosphere and the hotel is laid out to be very inclusive if you are having a function. The cost of the wedding was really very reasonable and ALL the guests said it was the very best they had ever been to. I am so grateful to the wonderful staff who did incredibly long hours without a squeak of complaint. A truly special experience.

Every one had a great day and said how amazing it

My husband and I booked the Connaught Hotel for our wedding after viewing it. From start to finish we have had the best service possible. It made our day the best it could be. All the staff during our stay there were extremely accommodating and helpful. I would visit this hotel again for a stay, the rooms are lovely and clean and the suites are beautiful.

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Zoe and John, on 24 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2018

Me and my husband got married here on the 7th April and we can't say enough about the hotel and everyone who worked over the weekend of our wedding. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and all our guests who stayed throughly enjoyed themselves, the staff on the Friday night were incredible even when we practically took over the brasserie. We couldn't have asked for anything better on the Saturday the communication was amazing and everyone was very attentive to us and even told me off for trying to do too much to ensure I enjoyed myself to the fullest. The food at the hotel is incredible and even the breakfast on the Sunday helped us carry on our celebrations. The function rooms themselves were stunning and the hotel looked very modern. We would like to thank Simon and everyone who worked over the weekend as they made our day so special we will never forget it.

You were fantastic, thank you so so much.

By Tash, on 24 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017

Absolutely outstanding! We had our wedding here last week and the staff, location, food, drinks and service were absolutely amazing! We keep getting compliments from all the guests. There were a lot of guests that stayed the night and we all agreed the breakfast and rooms were brilliant. Don't forget to bring swimming stuff because the pool and jacuzzi is lovely. We only live round the corner from the hotel but will definitely return. Thank you to everyone!

By Mr and mrs Rogers, on 24 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Oct 2016

We had our wedding in the hotel this weekend just gone and I have to say it was the most amazing day ever. The staff were second to none and everything was planned with complete care and precision. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff there and the whole day went without a hitch. Rooms were clean and comfortable with a balcony to over look Bournemouth we could not have been happier. Kids were entertained in the pool in the evening and the food was stunning. Not only did we have the most beautiful wedding day our guests had a fabulous time. We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us and I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding . Thank you to all the staff involved.

We had our wedding day at The Connaught Hotel on the 17th September. The hotel is absolutely stunning, the food was to die for, and the service from Fay, Kevin and all the wedding team was without fault and first class. We could'nt fault anything, nothing was to much trouble for them. We certainly chose the best wedding venue for us.. Our guests haven't stopped talking about the wonderful hotel and the Lamb Shank.. Thank you all of you for making our day so special.... sandie and Phil Grimshaw

Our daughters wedding
Venue Service

By Linda Dean, on 24 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Apr 2016

Our daughter had her wedding reception at the Connaught on the 16/4. We had the most perfect day and weekends stay at the hotel. The staff are all amazing, everyone of them. All the management team are lovely and couldn't do enough for us. The food at the hotel is superb and it certainly didn't let us down on the day of the wedding, even though they were catering for 100 plus people! Very impressed with food and the staff who looked after us at the reception. Would highly recommend this hotel for a weekend away, spa is lovely too! Or for a wedding reception! We will definitely go back for another visit! Thank you all once again for everything. Regards Linda Dean
