Generally a nice hotel with a nice cosy homely feel to it, staff very accommodating, helpful and friendly! Room was as per photos, clean and tidy! We had the triple room as was with baby, the staff even asked if there was anything the baby needed for breakfast which I thought was a nice touch! Lovely spacious dining room too!
However, speaking of breakfast-this was particular stingy in portion size, a teeny bowl of cereal given followed by a fry up (just one sausage, one rasher of bacon, one tiny serving of everything else too!) not what I paid £85 a night to receive! Although nice big pot of tea and coffee served! In the rooms toilet there was no toilet brush which I was surprised about! In their manual it said they charge for extra tea and coffee but thankfully ours were topped up next day free of charge when room serviced...and speaking of drinks, I'm sure their website said they offer a free welcome drink on arrival-no such luck for us-couldn't find anyone on reception to greet us so went to bar instead (which was fine!) but half expected to be offered the drink then!? Also booked this hotel cos of what I thought was close proximity to the centre but although it is opposite the finger lakes garden by beach it is still a good 20 min walk to where the main hub is which is where the baby friendly beach area is so made a boo boo booking this place! It was pretty much the furthest hotel away on North Drive! Couldn't get parking space in the small car park but found space on road next to it so no problem really except for carrying in all the baby stuff! Also it was fairly warm we we went and our ground floor room hit the top scale of my baby room thermometer so very hot-28 degrees-even with all windows wide open....bring a fan would be my best tip!
Hope this review helps!?
