We spent one night at the Connaught as part of our honeymoon. We stayed in the Lily Room and right from the start everything was perfect. The Receptionist, Charlotte, was so helpful and friendly and the actual reception area is stunning with lovely comfy sofas and a real flame fire for a cosy relax. We arrived early but were able...

We stayed at this hotel on the 27th Feb for 1 night..I actually never write reviews on here..but I really felt I had to praise this hotel for such a fantastic stay! I have to be honest, at £79.00 a night including breakfast and being so close to the sea..I was very optimistic! I was so pleasantly surprised! The reception... More

I have been fortunate in my life to have stayed at some very nice 5 star properties and cruise lines, yet I don't think I have ever encountered such a high level of service and attentiveness anywhere else previously. It started immediately at the reception desk. I was treated like royalty and I do not look anything like Prince Harry.... More

Came for my friends birthday last week. We could not fault it. Everything was really good and we were really surprised given the price we paid. Enjoyed a 'spa day', super value at just £60 for an hours treatment, champers and afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was one of the best I've had actually. Breakfast was also really good both... More

Lovely bar area, ate here before we went out and the food was very good. Good location only a 15 minute walk to the Pavilion or Town. we would definitely stay here again. Very polite and... More

Slightly dated hotel in places but it shows they are investing in it and look like they are upgrading the facilities. the Spa is very impressive and a major asset. Our room was a bit dated and had quite thin walls, ( for example we could hear the TV next door ) But that's often the case when staying in... More

Decided we needed a quick dose of sea air, so we found a good deal at this well-rated hotel and decided to give it a go. Glad we did. Refurbished fairly recently I think, the whole place looked well-maintained and well-appointed. Nice but 'compact' room - with the smallest shower room I have ever seen! Looked like a converted wardrobe,... More

There are lots of things to like about this hotel. the staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are excellent, food in the restaurant is good, the pool is a good size, our room was well fitted out On the other hand our room was rather small (double with balcony) and in the winter months it's probably not worth...

Many thanks for you review T1 and T2 and delighted you enjoyed your stay overall. As we state (see below) the rooms with a balcony are approx 20/30 sq ft larger than the standard rooms - very popular even during the colder months but great during the Summer.

We stayed at the Connought for a couple of nights in January, this is the fourth year running that we have chosen this hotel and again, we were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and welcoming with complimentary tea and coffee, biscuits and toiletries and the public areas of the hotel are always spotless. The gentleman at the reception desk... More
