On business, I had a small single room on the top floor of the annexe. I could nit-pick about detail in the rooms, but, at the price, it was clean and good value for money. It was a hot night, but the large fan in the room helped. Room-safe in the wardrobe. I used room service was very good, so...

Many thanks for your review Innes and I'm very sorry we disappointed you. Firstly, every room in the hotel has a hospitality tray and yours was located in the cupboard by the desk - a call to reception would have resolved your problem immediately!!

Spent 3 nights in early Aug with my wife and mother, celebrating my mum's 65th Birthday and my 45th. We had looked at a number of hotels before deciding on the Connaught, and it really boiled down to them having excellent reviews and the Spa facilities. We wanted a quiet place but within walking distance to the seafront and centre...
