Connaught House Hotel
Known as The Fox@Connaught since 2003, this inn dates from 1881 and is a Grade II listed building. The dockside ‘Connaught Tavern’ originally opened to cater for passengers disembarking from craft berthing at the Victoria Docks. However, as passenger numbers reduced the pub found itself catering more for the dock’s labourers and became a daily congregation point for those waiting to be picked for work.
This historic building was designed and built by Victorian architects Vipers and Wagstaff and has undergone a 1/4 million pound refurbishment to the upper floors to convert to a 17 en suite bedroom hotel with room service.
The facilities available to all guests will incorporate meeting room facilities to add to the already vibrant Gastro Bar and A La Carte Restaurant on the ground floor. There is also a large patio area with gardens, a children’s play area and free parking. Our hotel, which has only been running for a short time, has gained a positive reputation for friendly staff and high customer satisfaction. Our review pages can be used as an example to show the commitment we have to provide a “home away from home” for our customers.
