I stayed here one night. The bedroom reminds me of a Disney Hotel; lovely style comprising painted wood panneling and smart bathroom. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy my stay so much because the superior room I had was so small. It was just myself, my wife, and a baby. We're both slim, but we seemed to be constantly bumping into each other and tripping over our suitcase as we made our way around the room. While using the toilet I'm bumping into the toilet-roll holder (which just stands in the middle of the room as there is no official space for it), and there was no space around the sink to put our washbags. Overall, it just didn't flow for us. I wasn't aware at time of booking that they did larger suites (I booked same day by telephone with no access to the Internet), but I think one of those might be perfect.
While the style of the bedroom is Disney like, the style of the restaurant is very different. The dining room is large, with live music (pianist) and buffet. Pink table cloths and white high-back soft chairs make it look like a wedding reception - crossed with an old people's home. I'm generally into buffets - but the food here was really prepared well. Full credit to the chef, especially the Pork which was probably the best I've ever tasted. The pianist was very good too, much better than the usual affair.
Staff at reception were brilliant - very helpful and friendly.
It is just a shame the room was small, and I didn't know (or didn't think to ask) about the larger rooms on offer. I would like to go back again and try.
