Lovely welcome at hotel, room clean and tidy. Just the right size for a family of four - 1 x 11 year old, 1 x 14 yr old. It feels like you've entered another world and even the bedroom had interesting decor. Great view of gardens out the back. Breakfast had plenty on offer, but be warned arrive before 7.45 to be seated quickly without queuing.
Bar staff friendly and everyone wished my husband a happy birthday on the day he was wearing a big flashing 50 badge.
Monorail to the park was fast and efficient, Thursday morning we were straight on it. Friday morning was slightly busier but we were still at the gates by 9.05 to make use of early ride time. This was in half term as well.
Again, rooms - if you are in room 241 to 260ish you are on the main corridor that links to Splash Landing hotel. This can be noisy at night, we also had some idiot knocking on our door and running off. Maybe the hotel should provide security along this stretch of corridor until it closes!
Altogether though we loved the hotel and breakfast.
This would've been a five star rating if the evening meal at secret garden had been better. Remember to book into the restaurants, the only one you cannot do this in is the pizza parlour. We saw people queuing for secret garden with young kids at 9.30pm! We had booked in at 8.30pm , turned up on time and still had to wait over 10 minutes to be seated. Ordered starters of bread and oil, when it turned up one portion could've fed three of us. Way, way too much bread for a simple starter - three massive wedges. Our main course then did not arrive until 9.45pm, by this time our kids were so tired they were not really interested. It really did not seem organised, and whilst the staff were great and friendly it probably needed more of them. The meal itself was lovely, it was the wait and disorganisation that let it down as by then we'd had enough. We saw one lot of food come out and was taken to the wrong table! It's a shame, as they must know its busy especially in the holidays!
Check out straightforward, crazy golf fun and the kids enjoyed their 2 sessions in the splash park. Again with this though, it needs more inflatables for everyone to enjoy the rides
