We stayed at this hotel as part of a Paultons Park/Peppa Pig World mini-break deal and have to say, the value for money was superb.
Positives - view over the docks from our room on the 7th floor was lovely, aided by the floor to ceiling windows! Staff couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful (those on reception and those who served us at dinner and breakfast), Service came with a smile! The free use of the health centre across the car park was an excellent bonus, my young daughter loved her early morning swim before heading back to Paultons Park. Once again, staff on duty at the pool were welcoming and helpful, as were the other pool users. We took advantage of the dinner vouchers offered to us at check in and found it was good value for money, our meals arrived quickly, were well cooked and very tasty... my dessert was the nicest I have had in a while. Breakfast offered a wide range of options, suitable to all breakfast tastes, and again staff were lovely. The hotel has a good location, with shops and restaurants around it (as well as the docks of course!)
Not so positives - The room, especially the bathroom, felt quite dated but were perfectly functional. The pull out sofa bed that completed our 'triple' room was thin and my mum found it very uncomfortable to spend an entire night on. I also thought that free WiFi only being offered to ihg members was a little dated, these days free WiFi is usually a more standard 'bonus'. It didn't bother us hugely as we were on a family holiday and only staying 1 night, but we thought that for travelling business folk this may have been more of a problem.
Overall, we were very happy with our stay, and I have only listed the cons we noted to give a fair review. They did not in any way spoil our stay! We wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and thank the hotel for the service we were provided with.
