As stated on an earlier review, i will try and return and we did. Took my family this time and they were not disappointed.
I booked a room stating that we were coming up to look for some snow to go sledging. We arrived at about 1pm on Sat 4th Feb and it started snowing. The only thing was, it didnt stop!
Our 11 year old son spent the next 8 hours clearing the car park and the staff really looked after him with praise and soft drinks.
We ate in the restaurant that evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. The trio of pork was something else.
The room was ok(room 3). Cold on checking in but we were given an electric heater to help whilst the central heating got warmer. Love the refreshment tray in the room. Everything you needed including bottles of water. Under floor heating in the en-suites is a bonus especially in winter.
Full english breakfast cooked to perfection.
They even got a local to come in with a JCB and clear the car park of snow so we could get our cars out.
Overall, a lovely place to stay and eat.
Cant mark childrens activities because we didnt ask to use any and the outside play area was covered in snow so too dangerous to use.
