Intial impressions were very good, lovely welcome at reception, very accommodating as room wasn't ready, phone us as soon as we could get the key. Had high hopes when entering the room, a family room. View was excellent, 5th Floor, looking out over the sea. Some shabby elements to the room, needs a lick of paint and some of the wood work replaced.
The biggest let down was the room service. A seafood chowder which was 4 pieces of salmon in a creamy sauce! A brown bread salad sandwich which was the most miserable sandwich I'd ever had!! Now I had asked to have the mayo on the side but was told the salad mix was already made up, as I had seen how busy the place was (it was a Bank Holiday Sunday) I said fine, give me what you have....that consisted of two slices of brown bread with a mix of mayo, red and green peppers diced and some celery....!!! Not a tomato or bit of lettuce in site (except for the decoration on the plate which I had to put in the sambo to make it more filling) - I was so hungry and tired I didn't even complain about it at the time. To be fair to the receptionist at check out she apologies and took the price of the sambo off the bill. It shouldn't have been an issue for a 4 star hotel!
No towels in the bathroom, forgivable, but the wait to have them sent up wasn't !!! Over an hour later after a follow up phone call, not 4 star standards!!!
The Warm Tiger Prawn Salad in the lobby later that day made me very happy and full....top marks on this. The home made fish fingers and chips for my little girl was delish as was his Chicken Cesar Salad.
The pool was lovely, we had our 18 month old with us and there were no issues with this.
Overall it was a nice experience, I'll defo go back. It was extremely busy for the weekend that was in it and I have to say the staff in the Bar and Lobby cafe were under alot of pressure.
Be warned though, parking is an issue when the hotel is so busy. It may take a couple of attempts to find a parking space in the two car parks so if travelling with babs be sure to unload at the door before parking the car!!!
For older kids I can't comment on the types of activities but I can say there was a complete schedule of events for kids to take part in which impressed me.
