went on a 5 day break with National Holidays. We were disappointed with the look from outside.It reminded us of a 1980's bingo hall, but never judge a book by its cover. The room decor was dated but clean and comfortable. The food was brilliant as was the service in the restaurant. The location was good and access to the town centre was a 15min walk at a slow pace. We didn't pay a 5star price so didn't expect a 5star hotel. The only fault we had was with the shower, the water pressure seemed inadequate for the shower to work properly but we had a bath...no problem. Will definitely go there again. A big thank you to all the staff.

We booked an overnight stay here for me the wife and my granddaughter in a family room with breakfast and paid in full through Superbreak Reservations.
We arrived at about Eleven am and were advised our room was ready early and we could move in immediately.So far so good
Then we were advised that in fact we had to pay for our five year old granddaughters breakfast whether she had any or not although according to our receipt it was already paid.But the receptionist pointed out something in the small print to say meals had to be paid for and so we paid up.
The room was clean and tidy the staff very friendly and the breakfast very good. I do not like feeling like i have been ripped off so beware if you book for any unseen extras. This spoilt what was otherwise a very good break.

Dear carpetman56

Thank you for your nice comments regarding the hotel and staff. With regards to your room booked via Superbreaks, the offer with the family room is that the childs accommodation is free of charge, however any meals during the stay are charged for at the hotel on arrival. This is in accordance with your booking, i.e if you have booked Bed & Breakfast, you will be charged for the childs breakfast on arrival (£3.95).

I am sorry if your booking agent did not make you aware of this, however it would have been printed on your booking form and is also noted on their website and in their brochures.

Thank you again for your lovely comments and we hope you will return to us.

We have had one of the best hotel stays we have ever had in the UK. The Rainbow is a lovely hotel , well maintained both inside and out. The food is good, and plentiful,
and the room was clean and comfortable What more can I say? Oh yes! The staff are very helpful.. We will most certainly visit again

Fantastic value for the money. Basic rooms but clean and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent buffet food. The indoor Pool was small but very clean as were the changing facilities.Will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: We had a double room facing the main road, but the traffic noise wasn't a problem. We were a good distance from the Ballroom so experienced no music noise.
