We attended a function at Connaught Hotel in October and had such a lovely weekend that we booked again to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. The staff were polite and helpful overall a fab weekend
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights for our mini moon after our wedding. The hotel is very close to the beach and lovely walks. 10 mins to the town and shops and activities on the beach front. The hotel was very clean and tidy, staff were friendly and helpful. And the spa was lovely. Also great that there are family times in the swimming pool so we could spend quality time together. We cannot wait to return again soon.

My husband and I booked the Connaught Hotel for our wedding after viewing it. From start to finish we have had the best service possible. It made our day the best it could be. All the staff during our stay there were extremely accommodating and helpful. I would visit this hotel again for a stay, the rooms are lovely and clean and the suites are beautiful.
