Booked the hotel because of a visit to Legoland. I would not say the hotel is what I think of when I think kid "friendly". I would expect a larger, more exciting pool- or something fun in the hotel for them. Small pool and nothing exciting about it. limited spots as well. Don't go for the pool.
The gym is very sad- total of about 3 cardio machines- don't go there for the gym .
No restaurant/bar inside hotel- not a far walk- but not a place you run to in your swim cover up either- it is the only place to get a glass of wine or beer-none sold inside hotel or at the attached gas station. Bring your own wine and opener.
The included breakfast is an added bonus- good coffee and ok food.
The 8:00 cookies are a delight.
The staff is very friendly!!
Our room was nice and near the train-but everyone was able to sleep through it.
Close walk to the beach- about 8-10 minutes- very steep downhill down to water- but lovely.
Close to outlets and other good restaurants.
Only 3 stars because I really thought it would be a bit more fun and exciting for the kids....they have some nice rooms when you enter-maybe add a lego table?? or an outdoor fountain??
