This was the third time we have stayed at the Connaught but the first in the Lodge. We had room 232 on the third floor. Although we arrived early our room was ready and we had no trouble parking. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful explained everything to us. Fortunately times of breakfast and pool opening times are printed on the room card. Room was very large with sofa and a built in wardrobe which also had a portable fan which was a nice touch considering the weather was very hot . Room lovely and clean with a well appointed bathroom all clean with complimentary water and the usual tea and coffee etc. did not find being in the lodge a problem at all just a short walk to main hotel or you could cut through the garden. Breakfast was very nice with all usual choices along with cooked items. We sat on the terrace for breakfast and found the staff to be attentive and efficient. The pool area is good with good changing facilities etc. just need a £1 for a locker which is returned after use. Overall I cannot praise this hotel highly enough the staff are very good, their level of customer service is excellent from the room cleaner to the lady in the spa they are happy to help you with any request you may have. We would stay again and not hesitate to book the lodge again as it's location is brilliant for a walk along the sea or I to the shopping area.
