I spent one night here with my husband and six year old over the St Patrick's weekend.
Check in was professional and friendly and our room was ready prior to official check in time.
The room on first floor was quite small with no view which we didn't really mind as we were just there for one night. However our room was adjoining another room which was a problem for us as we could hear all the sounds from our neighbours room as if they were in the room with us. They had a few kids and there was quite a racket!
I think where at all possible these rooms should be kept for people who are travelling together.
However when we asked to be moved this was done quickly and without any hassle. New room was on the third floor and it was fine- we even had a slight view of river!
Our son went to evening kids club- 6 -11 and 10-1 morning session and he loved it. Meal provided at both sessions ordered when signing him in. He loved it and the staff were great. It was his birthday and he had happy sung to him by the kids and a cake with a candle in it- much appreciated.
We didn't have dinner in hotel but breakfast was very nice. We used the leisure centre pool and enjoyed that.
Finally thanks to the porter who helped my husband when we discovered next morning that the car battery was dead as we'd left the lights on..... like all the staff we had dealings with, very obliging.
Already booked to go back over october midterm.
Will request non adjoining room with a view this time!
