I have just left the Connaught Hotel today, after staying for 3 nights and found the whole experience truly amazing, from the moment one enters the magnificent building , one is greeted by a warm smile and a marvellous welcome. The hotel is beautifully decorated from the lounge to the bedrooms, and everything is immaculate. The cleanliness is second to none. I took my friend Mr Sam Shinde on a 3 day break, as we usually go to Bournemouth, what a change from last year when we stayed at the Royal Bath Hotel, everything about this hotel is great , except perhaps for its position, however it is only a short walk to the town and beach.
The service from all of the staff is more than one would expect from a 4 star hotel. Every member of the staff was courteous and one felt as if one was staying at the Dorchester in London.
Nothing was too much trouble, the room was beautifully clean and we had a balcony , the only slight niggle I had was that one had to put the keycard outside the bathroom in order to operate the light , however that was a minor aberration as everything else was first class, the breakfast was second to none and the quality of the food and service far above our expectations.
I truly defy anyone to go there and not feel the same.
I am looking forward to going back there next summer when my friend will be bringing his wife and 2 children to experience this delightful hotel. The ambience, the food, the cleanliness and the service were truly exceptional
~Well done to all and sundry , keep up the magnificent standard, I cant wait to go back next year.
Mr G Samuel
