I have been visiting the "Connaught" on both business and pleasure since Mr David Miller, the present proprietor took over 9 years ago.
This is the first time I have been able to visit since the "Connaught" was awarded it's four star status.
Mr Miller has continued with improvements and the hotel justly deserves its four star status.
On this occasion I had my wife, daughter and son-in-law with me and we made full use of all the Spa facilities, both my wife and daughter had massages which they thoroughly enjoyed.
We also ate in the double rosette awarded "Blakes Resteaunt" which was absolutely fabulous and not expensive for such a fine dining experience.
Last but not least all the staff had smiles on their faces at all times and seemed to be really enjoying their jobs, nothing was too much trouble it would appear that The proprietor has enabled and trained the staff to treat guests as he would wish to be treated if he was a guest.
A special thanks to the Maitre d' Nikki who as always was very attentive to all our needs.
We can't wait to make a return visit.
