Taj Connemara - living off the glory of the past
Connemara was once an Iconic Hotel. Today it is a relic of the past, like on old dowager. The wardrobe doors dont shut, the doors creak, water is not hot and response to complaints is pathetic. Even one star hotels have better water heating capability. While the common areas have a nice aroma, rooms are musty. But the only consistent thing is the quality of food, which is outstanding.

8/10 Very good

The property is beautiful! The front desk staff all the way to the salon was fantastic. The servers on the Veranda while kind were very slow and had a hard time processing the customers needs. The food at the Veranda was average. In April while staying here. The food was much better.
