We booked as a last minute special offer, and read a few worrying reviews on tripadvisor afterwards, but we found this hotel excellent.
The lady we spoke to on the phone when booking was extremely friendly and helpful, offering a family room at same rate, and cot for our 2 year old.
We arrived at hotel well before checkin, a lovely grand building, receptionist was very helpful and as our room was ready we put bags straight in, room was massive with lovely high ceilings, and a large immaculately finished and spotlessly clean bathroom.
As others have stated the hotel has a tiny car park, but the road outside is a dead end, so almost no traffic and plenty of space to park free either side, there is also a council carpark also free parking very close by (100ft?) if people prefer off road parking - we parked on the road about 30ft from hotel gate and had no problems.
We swum in the outdoor pool in the afternoon, which was lovely and warm, and very clean, there are no changing rooms but this was no bother to us and our little girl who had a fantastic swim.
Dinner was excellent, with varied choice of food (meat, fish and veg options) and service staff were excellent, they had organised a high chair before we even went for dinner, food was lovely, and wide choice of desserts.
There was a wedding that night, but the music was barely audible from our room, and bed was fantastically comfy so I got to sleep no problem.
Breakfast was excellent, wide choice of cereals, and full english with choice of eggs how you like, and vegetarian option.
Overall I felt this hotel was much nicer than other reviews suggested, maybe we got lucky with our room (154) and staff, but I couldn't fault our stay for the price we paid it is fantastic value and we would go back again without hesitation.
