we decided to book a stay here for the whit bank holiday weekend.we originally booked 2 nights and ended up staying a further night (grabbing the last room ;).
we did not know what to expect as peoples opinions differ .i think really it comes down to what you want out of a hotel,for us it was entertainment and keeping our 3 year old daughter occupied.
we were not dissapointed on both fronts,it was fantastic.now let me explain that we are not the "drink till you drop and ignore what the kids are up to" type.
we like to chill out without worrying about getting into arguments and so on with drunken "holiday makers".
maybe we were lucky ,but this hotel had brilliant guests and fantastic staff and very good lighthearted entertainment,the kids are allowed to get involved and as the night goes on,more and more of the parents do too (to our horror,lol).
breakfast is very good ,everything you can think of having for breakfast is available.
we had the evening meal in the restaraunt on the friday ,and there was a great choice there too.
you could have a bit of whatever you wanted eg.pork joint roast topped off with a 5oz sirloin steak followed by fish and chips ;).
there was soup and rolls, small wraps and plenty of different desserts that looked quite expensive ,but they were all included in the £15 per head price (drinks from the bar,extra).
the rooms were fine ,not the ritz, but adequate for our needs,although a small mini fridge would not go a miss. free view channels,nice comfy beds and the walls did not appear to be paper thin like in some places we have stayed.
the bar....not bad prices £3.35 pint carlsberg..£4.60 for a large house gin and tonic.£1.40 slush puppies and milkshakes for the kids.
all in all it was a really ,really enjoyable weekend and we enjoyed it so much ,that we are going again on friday:).
9 out of 10.
sorry forgot to mention the swimming pool....excellent,,,and as good as it looks on the website.
