o.ApptBookedDateTime_dte is a datetime field.

so I should be able just to do         o.ApptBookedDateTime_dte  < '2014-04-12 14:00:00:000

this seems to work. o.ApptBookedDateTime_dte  < '2014-04-12'  

if I remove the HH:MI:SS but I need them in the query.

You can try this:
WHERE 
         CONVERT(DATETIME, o.ApptBookedDateTime)  < CONVERT(VARCHAR,'2014-04-12 14:00:00:000',114)

CONVERT(DATETIME, o.ApptBookedDateTime)

your field IS already datetime, so you shall not apply the convert function there:

Then try with code 120:
WHERE 
         CONVERT(DATETIME, o.ApptBookedDateTime)  < CONVERT(VARCHAR,'2014-04-12 14:00:00:000',120)

>still returns 2014-12-04 13:59:00.000
so, you want to format the OUTPUT ...

which is in the SELECT itself:

SELECT CONVERT(varchar(20), o.ApptBookedDateTime, 101)
 FROM ...
WHERE  o.ApptBookedDateTime  < CONVERT(datetime, '2014-04-12 14:00:00:000'  , 120)

<wild guess>
Copy-paste the COMPLETE WHERE clause into this question, just in case there is any logic such as AND / OR or any precedence constraints ( ) that is causing this date comparison to only fire on a subset of rows.
