We stayed for one night here as a little treat and it lived up to the high recommendations. Blakes restaurant did not disappoint either. Staff are all helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean and well run.

The breakfast was excellent with plenty of selection. We did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food, but the menu looked good. All of the... More

Just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at the Connaught, having also celebrated the previous 3 anniversaries at this very welcoming hotel. Although we arrived early our room was made readily available for us. We used the gym and spa area, gym facilities were not the greatest but this was more than compensated for by the swimming pool and spa area.... More
