At just 500m from Bournemouth town centre and 1.5 miles from its mainland railway station, The Connaught Hotel and Spa is the ideal destination if you’re looking for Bournemouth conference venues. We offer two fully appointed conference suites, each with high speed wifi and lots of natural light.

Located on the ground floor of our Connaught Lodge, our two meeting rooms are in a quiet location away from holidaying guests in the main hotel. Your delegates could even stay over in the Connaught Lodge for convenient direct access to the meeting rooms.


With your safety in mind, we’ve changed how we run meetings and events at The Connaught Hotel and Spa. Our new procedures are under constant review and will always follow the latest government advice.

Contactless Service & Enhanced Cleaning

Whether it’s checking in and out, ordering refreshments or booking a spa treatment – we have invested in making our services available digitally. Meeting rooms are cleaned and fully sanitised between each use and we are operating on a card payment only system in all areas of the hotel.

Our enhanced deep cleaning programme is carried out throughout the whole hotel, perspex screens have been installed where possible and all of our team will follow a policy of no physical contact, maintaining social distancing wherever possible.

Meeting Room Layout

We have ensured that our new meeting room layouts meet government guidelines on social distancing to ensure you and your delegates remain safe. See our new meeting rooms capacities below.

All tables and chairs can be moved around too so you can always move even further apart if the space allows it.

Hand Sanitiser

We have installed hand sanitising stations in all public areas of the hotel and are ensuring all touch points are sanitised after each use. Guests are required to wear a face mask in all public areas of the hotel (excludes areas such as the restaurant, bar, spa and bedrooms).

Refreshments and Lunch

Food and refreshments can be pre-ordered from our team for pre-arranged times throughout the day. We are also able to provide packed lunches individually and safely wrapped for each delegate if you prefer.
