upon arrival, the hotel reminds you of something you'd find in Florida, very inviting with a grand entrance and presented well.
The reception area follows suit with a themed decor, and certainly gets you in the mood for a trip to the theme park.
The room was clean and decor was aimed at families. Amenities were basic; there was a small bathroom with complimentary toiletries. The room also had a kettle with a selection of tea/instant coffee and UHT milk. (bleugh)
The issues came when we went along to dinner and looked at the menu..... frozen burger served with frozen chips for £12, fish and chips also £12 (did not stipulate cod or haddock so presume its a cheap variety of basic white fish)..... i love my food and i am happy to pay a premium providing the quality reflects the price. needless to say i went hungry! breakfast didnt fare much better i noticed the cheap 'Coronet' catering brand everywhere which speaks volumes to me! Such a shame as they have 2 hotels on site and they like to market this one as superior although for me i would not consider returning until they sort the food out.
