We stayed here in August 2013 and was so amazed with the hotel, we came back in August 2014. Once again, we were not disappointed. We had a superior family room which just about was big enough. My son is only 11, but is quite big and the 5ft bunk beds were just about big enough. If we go back next year, we will opt for the deluxe family room that gives you 6ft bunk beds. Breakfast is very good, but does get busy if you go down after 9am, I would like to mention Jessica who works in the restaurant at breakfast times and is so well organised and professional, she also has a good sense of humour and we had a laugh one morning when my 8 year old daughter followed one of the waitresses into the restaurant expecting to be given a seat, but the waitress was only looking for an empty table for us.
My kids like to put there soft toys in the window of our hotel room and then later on when we went to the pleasure beach, we went on the train and could see there toys in the window when the train went right past the window. We got passes for the pleasure beach most days to have a look round and start the day off, this is a big plus as they are complimentary. We planned a dry day for the pleasure beach and then bought wristbands and went on all the rides.
Would recommend this hotel to everyone and if you book early, the cost is very good compared to other hotels, especially when you take into consideration you get free parking, big breakfasts and complimentary passes for the pleasure beach. Can't wait to go back next year.
