I stayed here for a night on a business trip in the main hotel. On arrival I was asked to pay up-front for the room which was an unexpected request. On entering my room - this was at 8 in the evening - I found all the windows open, presumably to air it. It was a cold night and I... More

I'm sorry that we didn't quite measure up for you on this occasion T - I have passed your comment about the sandwich to our chef and that will most certainly be acted upon, thank you. My apologies about all the windows being open. I do hope we have another opportunity to meet with your approval next time if indeed... More

I stayed with a friend in the lodge part of the hotel, beds were very comfortable and the shower was very good.

It was just one night but we had a great time. Comfy bedroom, excellent food and wonderful service from Abdo in the Brasserie. Next time we would probably choose a room in the main hotel building rather than the Lodge.

The Lodge is an annex, a short walk to the Main Best Western building, only a problem if it’s raining as there’s no covered access. Its situated about 10/15 mins walk to the town centre or main beach area that require a bit of ‘uphill’ negotiation, no problem if your reasonably active but for the older or infirm this could...

The Connaught is an exceptionally lovely hotel with excellent facilities and warm, welcoming and very helpful staff. As a solo traveller, I really appreciated the care and attention they all gave so I felt comfortable dining alone and also using the facilities. The spa is wonderful and my therapist, Leanne, was fantastic. Her warm, professional manner enabled me to truly... More

I booked a room here as a joint 21st birthday present for two family members. Obviously I wanted to pre-pay and avoid the guests having to leave any kind of deposit. The staff here made this so easy- not something which I can say for many hotels in my previous experience. Not only this, but the staff left a note... More

We spent one night in The Lodge on the far side of the car park. We had a room on the top floor and it was almost perfect (the pump which came into action whenever using water in the shower room was rather loud, which accounts for the 'almost'). The layout of the room is really nice with a kind... More
