My family and I stayed at this hotel as we were going to see the wrestling at the LG arena.
The hotel couldn't have been in a better location, the arena was a 10 minute walk away, through really lovely grounds and past a lake. We were very lucky with the weather, which probably made the area look even nicer.
The hotel itself was very easy to find and it has plenty of parking, you do have to pay for the parking, but as hotel guests it costs £8.
We got to the hotel very early and were able to check in straight away, we were also upgraded to executive rooms which included use of the executive lounge which was a fantastic bonus.
The rooms were very spacious and well equipped and had a good size bed settee for the kids.
The beds were very comfy.
Having the use of the executive lounge was fantastic as we were quite shocked at how expensive the food and drink were in the hotel, it was £16 for a burger and chips!
The food was nice though and the service was good.
We used the pool which was very nice, there were swimming lessons going on but there was still room to swim, the one gripe we had was that a group of people decided to hog the jacuzzi so no one else got to use it, the time limits were not really adhered to.
The breakfast was great lots of choice and fantastic muffins!
What was also great was that check out is not until 12pm on a Sunday so after breakfast we used the pool again which was a bonus.
All in all a very good stay and we would certainly stay there again.
