I cannot believe that I stayed at the same hotel during the same period as some of the other reviewers. We paid a little more for a view and got double room 125 inclusive of breakfast. Room was clean and tidy and remained so throughout our stay. It was also reasonably cool considering the very hot weather. The cleaners were extremely polite and friendly and did their job really well every day. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the room also contained a midi fridge which was a real bonus to store snacks, water and extra milk in.
Yes, there is a walk from the car park to main reception but bare in mind that this is not a luxury hotel so take your time and enjoy the lovely view. Reception staff were always pleasant and helpful. We needed a bulb changed which was seen to immediately, likewise my husband inadvertently locked the safe and we couldn't open it again they sent someone over immediately to reset it.
Took advantage of the zumba aerobics (external instructor but reduced £4 per person fee for hotel guests saving us £1) and used the ample sized pool, sauna and steam room and jacuzzi seat around the side of the pool throughout our stay.
Ample breakfast served in the dining room and again no issue with the efficient staff. They had a very busy day on the 2nd day of our stay but they all remained clam and worked as a team to clear the backlog which they achieved in 10 mins.
We came here as a mature couple during the school holidays but I would happily bring my grandchildren and friends here in the future. We are seasoned hotel guests and stay in a hotel at least once every six weeks. Give this hotel a chance. The staff really are trying and as long as you do your research as to what type of holiday you want and what room type will suit you you will not be disappointed.
