We stayed at the Connaught hotel for a long weekend to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent. Although we didn't get round to using it, the Connaught has a lovely pool and spa. We stayed in the lodge and the room (201) was nice with a large... More

On business, I had a small single room on the top floor of the annexe. I could nit-pick about detail in the rooms, but, at the price, it was clean and good value for money. It was a hot night, but the large fan in the room helped. Room-safe in the wardrobe. I used room service was very good, so... More

Many thanks for your review Innes and I'm very sorry we disappointed you. Firstly, every room in the hotel has a hospitality tray and yours was located in the cupboard by the desk - a call to reception would have resolved your problem immediately!! Secondly no matter which room you have in any hotel there will always be people passing... More

Spent 3 nights in early Aug with my wife and mother, celebrating my mum's 65th Birthday and my 45th. We had looked at a number of hotels before deciding on the Connaught, and it really boiled down to them having excellent reviews and the Spa facilities. We wanted a quiet place but within walking distance to the seafront and centre... More

Stayed at Connaught Lodge for two nights. Very comfortable convenient hotel, walking distance to shops and sea front. Lodge been refurbished to good standard, restaurant very nice and food and service very good. Bar and small garden comfortable for drinks. Only small problem room very hot, need air conditioning unit, other than that would recommend for short break.

I was very happy to find a single room in the Connaught for 65 GBPs - in their "Annex" building. All the reviews I read about the place were glowing - so I expected it would be a '5' experience. I don't mind not being in the main building nor in a smaller room, but, sadly, the Annex was a... More
