The Connaught is a lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, especially Thomas who went out of his way to accommodate us. The beds were very comfy and rooms very clean. This hotel is close to everything with taxis outside the door and a bus stop accross the road. Will definitely be returning.

Wifi wasn't working in the room though, we did report it and they came up and checked but still couldn't connect the whole weekend, was fine in the reception... More

Stayed in a one bed apartment for one week from the 18th of March. Read some of the recent reviews and with some people there is no pleasing. This is not a five star hotel nor does it claim to be so why expect it when it offers excellent value for money. It was perfect from start to finish. The... More

Now one con: my car has been damaged while parked at their car park, some boy racer hit it leaving a massive dent in the bumper... More
