Stayed here Saturday night for no other reason than my two boys (5 & 4) wanted to stay in a hotel and order room service. Check in was a little slow, lady dealing with somebody else walked into the back when finished, leaving a gent to deal with a couple of tricky clients before checking me in. My unusual request of a second TV for the Playstation in the family room couldn’t be accommodated – fair enough. I was told I should have called earlier to request something of this nature although I had been calling 08443876245 all afternoon and couldn’t get anybody to answer. I afterwards asked the guy if I could bring my own TV in which he said was fine.
Room was clean and tidy, lots of towels, although both the room and bathroom are verging on the edge of being called a little dated. Shower wasn’t great, old fashioned shower curtain as opposed to the glass which is usually the norm in hotels nowadays.
Swimming pool was very busy, lots of kids having fun prior to the 7pm time in which they have to leave, pleasant and helpful lady on the gym. Also funny to see some adults tut tutting the children when splashing about – what do they expect in a hotel pool, possibly members of the gym.
Room service was a disappointment, not the best Pizza for £10, bit like those value ones from the supermarket when I was hoping for a little quality. I had the Club sandwich and chips which was just ok. I also ordered an AntiPasti platter for £13 and this was shocking really, a few slices of poor quality salami, some olives and cheese and a some bread. If you are a fan of this then avoid as you will be disappointed.
Cheerful welcome at breakfast which was good, lots of choice and all hot and well cooked.
Free Wifi which was decent strength, I liked the 11am check out and the 10:30 breakfast finish along with the free parking.
All in all a good stay as we only paid £84 for the night for a family room and breakfast it just scrapes into the Very good category. For nearly £45 the room service was terrible.
Kids who are none the wiser to the finer details yet enjoyed it and want to come back. less
