Description

Situated in the heart of London's vibrant Covent Garden, the Grand Connaught Rooms (formerly the New Connaught Rooms) is steeped in history and, since being acquired by Principal Hayley Hotels & Conference Venues in June 2009, has undergone a L7 million transformation. Whatever your event needs, from an exhibition or glittering gala dinner to a high tech conference, training event or executive board meeting, the Grand Connaught Rooms is one of central Londons largest conference and event venues. The 37 air-conditioned function rooms can accommodate from 2-700 delegates for a meeting and the Grand Hall, with its magnificent high ceilings and beautiful chandeliers, is perfect for treating your guests to an award ceremony to remember. Combined with the Balmoral, the Grand Hall can accommodate over 700 guests for a dinner. As part of the grand transformation, the Covent Garden suite has been converted into a high spec training suite. Escape the outside hustle and bustle of the city and train your delegates in an inspirational setting. Let your delegates dine from the Tempus Restaurant where they can choose from the extensive lunch menu. The distinctive Georgian architecture and exquisite interiors with state-of-the-art equipment make the Grand Connaught Rooms a unique venue and, being located in the West End and surrounded by the buzzing bars, theatres, hotels and shopping facilities with excellent transport links, you have everything you need at your fingertips. Whats more, the Grand Connaught Rooms is only a 10 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from out sister property, Hotel Russell, which has 373 elegant bedrooms and a full-service Tempus restaurant ideal for your delegates to stay overnight if you want a combined residential package.

Free, superfast Wi-Fi with a maximum bandwidth of 1Gb is available throughout the venue.

A lovely delightful wedding venue. I have worked here as a Wedding Planner and also event decorator. Those awful set of stairs leading from the outside to the grand ballroom. Trying to items for the wedding is really quite terrible and off putting. Not good as there are no lifts. Suppliers have started adding premiums onto the invoices or even refusing to supply goods to the grand connaught rooms which is a shame as the ballroom is gorgeous when decorated and in all its splendor. Staff are mostly helpful, but could be more so. This venue also has a later licence if you pay more money.

Overpriced rates for undersized portions. Their food used to at least be really tasty, but the quality has been steadily decreasing over my last few visits. Would recommend you avoid eating here.

The rooms are grand, and gorgeous. The DJ they recommend was fast in setting up, friendly, and did a good job. The food was very good. However, there were a few more hitches than one would want. There was a mouse in the bar, they did not have the wine selection that they wanted, some of the staff kept moving decorations without telling us, and despite having our portion of the venue until 1 we were asked to leave at 12.
