About Best Western Plus The Connaught Hotel

About The Connaught Hotel and Spa

*** We’re delighted to once again be offering viewings of our beautiful wedding venue ***

Your venue…

Located five minutes from the centre of Bournemouth, our four star boutique hotel is the perfect setting for your wedding celebrations. The town’s famous beaches are just a few minutes’ walk away too – a beautiful backdrop for your newlywed photographs. Contact us today for details of our new 'Intimate wedding package' for 15 guests or new 'Afternoon Tea Wedding' option!

Your ceremony…

We’re one of the few wedding venues in Bournemouth that is licensed for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, allowing you to spend the whole day in one location.

For an indoor ceremony with up to 130 guests you’ll be able to choose from three stunning suites. Or say your vows in our picturesque gardens in front of our baby blue beach hut, nestled between two palm trees.

Your reception…

Wedding receptions are held your choice of three suites for 60-130 guests. Our largest, The Franklyn Suite, is located in a separate building (The Connaught Lodge) away from holidaying guests in the main hotel. This suite has its own private entrance, private bar & lounge, floor to ceiling windows for masses of natural light, beautiful chandeliers, private terrace gardens and a large dance floor for you and your guests to dance the night away. For couples seeking an ‘Exclusively Yours’ venue, The Connaught Lodge is available for private hire which includes The Franklyn Suite, 28 stylishly appointed bedrooms and two suites with full access to all facilities within the main hotel.

Your wedding breakfast…

Wedding breakfasts are held in your choice of three suites, with the largest being able to accommodate up to 100 guests.

Your wedding breakfast will be created by our talented team of AA Rosette chefs using fresh, locally sourced produce where possible and catering for all dietary requirements. Our menus are just a starting point, if there’s something that you would like for your wedding breakfast then we’re very flexible.

Your wedding night…

It’s nothing but the best for the newlyweds on your wedding night – you’ll get a complimentary stay in our most luxurious suite.

Our boutique hotel offers 81 stylishly appointed bedrooms for your family and friends travelling in for the day, all at a discounted room rate. And anyone staying over will enjoy FREE use of our luxury spa and swimming pool during their visit.

Your wedding team…

From your first visit all the way through to your wedding day, you’ll be in the safe hands of our expert weddings team. Luckily we’ve hosted hundreds of weddings at The Connaught Hotel and Spa - so whilst every wedding is unique, there isn’t much that will come as a surprise to us! We’ll guide you through every aspect of your wedding and help you make the most of your special day.

You can visit our website for more information about our weddings and packages, or to book a show-around. And please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to ask us any questions. We look forward to meeting you and discussing your ideas and plans for your big day.

    A wonderful venue for a wedding

    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.

    Fantastic

    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.
