Tired Hotel
Very tired hotel, needs an upgrade & some tlc. Uncomfortable bed & pillows need replacement. Felt more like a retirement home with off putting odours in the Lodge accommodation. Most of the staff were very helpful & friendly, the bar has a good selection of gins. The breakfast offering was good, but nothing special. Didn’t use the Spa so cannot comment.Unfortunately would not return in its current state.

8/10 Very Good

we really enjoyed our stay at the connaught lodge hotel. I made the mistake of booking here instead of just the Connaught hotel as I wanted to be where the swimming pool was. We had to walk through the garden to get to the swimming pool which would have been ok if it had not been raining. The staff were amazing all so kind and helpful. It was also not made clear on the website that you had to pay £8 per day for parking. The breakfast was well worth paying for.

The hotel was in a very good area, very clean and nice facilities. The room didn’t get cleaned straight away so we had to ask for fresh towels and more tea bags but the reception offered replenishments. The parking was £8 a night which seems a little excessive considering the price of the rooms. If you book the rooms direct I don’t believe the parking is an additional cost.
