We booked in at Dratyon Manor Hotel for one night with a day park to the theme park the following day.
First impressions were good. A nice reception area, the staff members were friendly and helpful. Check-in was speedy and efficient.
We stayed in a standard family room, (2 adults and 1 child) this was more than sufficient for a one night stay. The room was comfortable and the air-con was a very welcome relief after a very hot and sticky 2 hour drive!
We ate in the carvery restaurant in the evening. The price was reasonable, a 3 course carvery for the adults was £19.95 as much as you can eat, and the child price was £5.00 for 2 courses. The restaurant staff were very attentive, and the service was very good.
Breakfast - I would strongly advise to avoid the 8am crush! We went for breakfast just before this time and had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. Just after 8.15 it seemed like everyone staying decided to descend on the restaurant at the same time! The food is a buffet style, with cereals, fresh fruits, yogurt, toast and the full English. Again the restaurant staff were very attentive.
All in all we had a very enjoyable stay here, and I would recommend for both families and couples.
