We loved this hotel. We had very few expectations as the main priority was finding somewhere that catered brilliantly for young children but it was so much more than that. The staff were lovely and friendly and food (especially the buffet lunch) was exceptional; the fact that adults could collect their lunch from the main dining room and eat it with their kids in the children's dining room was fantastic.
The rooms were well-equipped and spacious with modern bathrooms and consistent hot water, the beds were comfortable and it was great to see little touches like good hairdryers, binocolurs and digital radios.
The decor is dated but wonderful... very retro, we really enjoyed the different lounges and at any time of day we found the hotel accommodating, comfortable, relaxing and friendly. I've never known anywhere do couples, families, friends and dogs so well. You can avoid the kids easily if you want to (they're not allowed in the dining room and some lounges), along with the dogs... but every step of the way the staff are helpful - suggesting lovely things to do from the hotel.
The surrounds are beautiful and we had a lovely 3 days. Thanks guys :-)
