Drive up is uninspiring - Premier Inn with cheap looking paint I thought. Room not ready at 3pm for check in. Room was 303 Pirate Premier Room with a view - fantastic - and thats where fantastic ends! Corridors for each level set out with a theme, pirates on level 3 includes lego statues and pirate themed carpets. Once at the end of the corridor the theme is increased when the rooms change from standard to premier where the doors are decorated and the walls have different paint and lego torches outside the doors. Rooms have a master area which is small but adequate, beds and pillows very hard (premier inn type quality). Bathroom also small but adequate, decor very nice and themed, kids area with own tv and bunks. Good use of treasure hunt to find lego gift but disappointed kids when they find its the ones they give away free in the newspapers occasionally and they already had it. They also get a lanyard but not the lego one, just a plain black one and have to collect badges from the eating places in the park of which they are given a special one to show they have stayed in the hotel. They can swap with staff and other guests which is fun if you realise that you have a special one and everyone wants it in the park! Pool area very small for the hotel and aimed at kids aged 4 - 7yrs. Ours were 8 and 10 and were way too old, 8yr old may have been ok with a younger sibling. There is only 1 restaurant and it is a buffet style. Breakfast included in price but not dinner at £19.95 per adult and £6.95 per child. Food quality was poor and not enough staff generally in the hotel to clean the constant mess that under 5's create so everything is sticky and cake all over the floor. There are 2 bars but one doesnt appear to be open. The other bar the skyline bar serves bar food, burgers, club sandwich etc which is ok. They do a show in the evening, again aimed at 4 - 7yr olds. You can enter the park a half hour early through a turnstyle at the back of the hotel but it takes you this half hour to get through that gate as there is only 1 person on it. On the saturday they eventually put an extra 2 people out with ticket scanners as they saw the queue would not be through before 10am when the park opens to everyone. If you have a 4 - 7 yr old it is handy to stay over but very pricey for what you get. The rooms are fantastic decor-wise but thats it, the rest is of a very low standard for the high price tag. Stay at Hilton or Marriot and half your bill and raise your standard.
