We stayed for one night at The Connaught Hotel and found the staff to be very helpful both when booking the room over the phone just two days before and when we arrived early and was able to check in and park the car.
We had room 58 - an executive room - which was spacious and had a bath. The balcony looked out from the third floor over the car park and street, which wasn't the best, but it had a couple of chairs and a table. The furnishings in the reception, restaurant and bar are lovely, although our room wasn't as stylish, but it was clean and practical. The only issue we had was with the fire alarm going off twice while we were there - apparently due to guests showering with the bathroom door open and too much steam setting it off... not really the hotel's fault.
A card wishing us a happy anniversary and a voucher for a free glass of wine each was in our room when we arrived, which was a really sweet touch. We had brought our own bubbly with us and because our room didn't have a fridge we were able to put it in the hotel fridge - and was later brought up to us in an ice bucket and with two glasses, which was nice too.
We used the spa facilities - the jacuzzi wasn't working, which was a shame, but the sauna, steam room and swimming pool were really nice. The fact that we were allowed to use the facilities even after checking out was a big plus for us and we made use of a relaxing spa before we made our drive home.
The breakfast was lovely - a full english, any type of eggs, porridge, cereals, fruit salad, as well as fruit juices, teas and coffee.
Only a short walk from the sea front, we really enjoyed our stay here and hope that we might make it back again for another anniversary. less
