A Functional Hotel with no frills.
The Connacht is a very big hotel which caters for large groups of people so is ideal for conferences, conventions, coach parties and travelling sports teams with accompanying fans. It also has good facilities for young families with children. Unfortunately, the expansive restaurant and bar areas amplify sound so the only escape from the noise is outside in the conservatory area which is quite cold. In fact, the hotel is cold throughout. Our room was a good size but lacked the comfort we have grown to expect for the same price, on our travels. Other Spa hotels provide bathrobes - this one doesn't. Staff members are pleasant and helpful and the hotel boasts some excellent gym and Spa facilities.
Generally there is a good choice of food, especially at breakfast time, although it is necessary to request tea spoons with which to stir coffee or tea!
For us - as an elderly couple wanting a bit of comfort and finesse whilst on holiday - this hotel was not what we had hoped for.
