Hi mr miller Thank you for your email. Yes my wife and I loved our stay. Although we never used the spa we intend to when we come back in September. I have no complaints apart from the noisy idiot next door in room 207 in the lodge! First impressions count and I loved the reception. Your young foreign staff... More

I bought my mum and I a spa pass for Mother's Day at The Connaught. The staff were wonderfully attentive, and the spa facilities were brilliant. Everywhere was clean and all details were explained once we got there. The only annoying factor was that we had to get out of wet swimwear to go upstairs to the restaurant for lunch... More

We spent one night here. We were out on Saturday evening and got back to the hotel at 9.30 and wondered if we would be able to have a light meal. We were superbly looked after as indeed we were at breakfast. All the staff we came into contact with were great. We were very comfortable indeed and would have... More

Spent a few days here for our anniversary. Very clean and well presented hotel with plenty of pleasant, efficient and attentive staff. Decent sized room with all you will need (or if not staff will sort it). Only two minor criticisms: our room was above the service area and, without air con and having to leave the windows open, the... More

We experienced excellent service and politeness and consideration from the staff. For the first time in any hotel we were visited by the Operations Manager, Kevin Casswell to discuss my dietary requirements. The room was clean warm and well equipped with an excellent en suite. The food in the Restaurant and the Breakfasts were first class. We would certainly recommend... More

I booked this hotel for a short break for my family. The hotel was great. All the staff very friendly, the food was fantastic and the rooms immaculate. When I asked the children what could have been better the reply was..." we should have stayed longer" That about sums it up. Thanks to everyone who made our brief stay so... More

Having worked in five star hotels all my life I have to say that I usually find fault with hotels I stay in as a guest. It could be the service, the food or even just a dirty changing room in the spa. I stayed at the Connaught for two nights to attend a friends wedding and was very pleased... More

The Connaught Hotel is very clean and comfortable . Food is good and the swimming pool complex is very enjoyable. There are a few issues that need to be sorted especially the car park..Double banking causing cars to be blocked in can be very annoying. Television in the room could be larger and wall mounted and pool dressing gowns provided... More
