Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely time in this clean and modern hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was quiet. The food was good. The children absolutely loved the pool. All in all good value. Special mention to Debbie and all the restaurant staff who made my daughter's birthday extra special with birthday pancakes and a round of "Happy Birthday".

Lovely friendly staff! Great hotel close to the Harry Potter studios. Staff do games for the kids and offer prizes! Great little pool. Breakfast was lovely, mixture of hot and cold buffet juices and hot drinks. Big thanks to Debbie who came over to chat to us and got us very excited for Harry Potter! Will definitely come back!

Wow, what a wonderful and warm welcome that we received from Jo at check in! The moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble, everyone was so friendly and helpful! The room was so comfortable and extremely spacious! My children loved the Harry Potter hunt to find the characters too! Debbie was extremely helpful at breakfast advising and using her knowledge of the route for HP studios, so lovely and friendly! We had a wonderful stay and only wish that we had stayed longer! The hotel is in a perfect location and great for HP studio tour! Thanks for a lovely and memorable stay! Hope to come back 😀

Phoned up, explained I was coming with work for a person supported, and we needed 1 room for 3 adults or 2 close together, and a walk-in shower they were really great. When we arrived, we put our car reg in so didnt get charged. They had a find the Harry Potter characters, which the person I was with enjoyed, and they made her feel special, booked for the spa . Off to Harry Potter once back relaxing, realised we left her bedtime drink at home the staff went and sorted for us. Breakfast was great tasting food great staff, . All in all a great place to stay, with great travel time to Harry Potter studios, would stay here again thank-you to all the staff

We had a fantastic stay. From the moment we walked through the doors we received nothing but great service. Rooms were clean and comfy. We asked for additional pillows which were brought to the room straight away. Breakfast is great. Lots of choice. At tea time the food was quick but tasty and the service was really good. Staff: Lewis, mellissa and Baby were very attentive and great with the children
