Just got back from 4 night stay at The Connaught. For a 3 star hotel it was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, it was very well presented, clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and they took note of our request for a walk in shower. We ate in the brasserie every night, despite the service being a bit slow on the Monday, where the food was imaginatively presented, tasted great and was well priced. There are a few small signs of refurbishment work but this was not at all off putting. I had a very good treatment at The Bluewater Spa. The few minutes walk to the West Cliff zig zag down to the beach was an added bonus. Would definately stay here again and recommend it to friends. We booked on the hotel website as the room rate was the same as the discount sites were offering.
