We had a wonderful stay at the Connaught Lodge. The staff were friendly, the spa services are great and it is great that you get to use them even if you are staying in the lodge, and it was no trouble at all to walk to the facilties from the lodge, we were even able to use the facilties even after checking out. The jacuzzi was really just amazing, it was the hottest jacuzzi ive ever experienced, so that was amazing! And it wasnt all that busy when we were using the facilties during the day. The cost of the room was a little high, but we were staying in the middle of summer so I can understand why the room rates were a little high and also it was a good location. It was about a 5minute walk to the beach, and was close by to resturants and pubs. The breakfast was absolutely amazing, the man serving it was very friendly and they had the most amazing pasteries, especially the cinnamon rolls! YUM! It was raining outside so it got a little crowded inside but they had a solution and we ate our breakfast in a room closeby, which we didnt mind at all to do as it was a little quieter in the other room. The room was spacious, the bed comfy we had some teeny tiny tears in our sheets but thats no bigge really, barely noticable. there was a strange tapping noise i could hear throughout the night, i couldnt figure out what it was, but im sure this isnt the hotels fault. because it was my birthday they offered two free glasses of wine complimentary which we thought was a really nice touch. they also offered us late check out free of charge, absolutely brilliant!! we really appreciated that. bathroom and room was all clean and spotless, no complaints at all about the room or the hotel at all really. would recommend and return.
