              • Group of friends
                6.6

                Super breakfast, fresh and well cooked buffet. Dining room has lovely views and staff friendly. Good value and easy to find hotel.

                Receptionist on arrival was rather unfriendly, however every other member of staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. Bed surprising low and soft but still had a good night's sleep.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Close to movie theatre and restaurant. Quiet place.

              • Couple
                8.2

                It's so close to the rest of the festival leisure park facilities.

                They do not provide Hair Conditioner - Blow drying long hair without conditioner is not fun.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Our room was overlooking the lake. Very clean.

                The shower didnt work properly and the tv channels were all messed up. There was no free wifi available in the rooms.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Even though there was a noisy wedding reception party downstairs it didn't affect us in our room.

              • Single
                5.8

                as above

                Room was much too hot, shower was much to hot.Could nt get surved at the bar so went to the pub across the road

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Clean Modern. Staff both at the reception and the bar excellent

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The staff were very polite & helpful. The room was clean & comfortable.

                The location can be a little noisy from late night revellers outside the hotel.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                the convenience

                no centre light in the bedroom area therefor dark when trying to get ready.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                the hotel was convenient for my needs

                walls are quite thin and the fire alarm going off was a bit distracting

              • Single
                5.0

                Location

                Expensive for what you get. We had a conference but wireless internet connection in conference room was very poor, and in other parts where you could get a connection it was very expensive. You can get a comparable room and free internet just up the road for a lot less.

              • Couple
                6.6

                The fact that we were given complimentary breakfast, a bottle of wine sent to our room and charged half price because the booking had been messed up.

                Although I had requested a non smoking room, they said that because my confirmation slip only said 'non smoking preference', it wasn't guaranteed. I had requested a standard room, thinking it was a double, and they said it was a twin. I was also told that because others had paid deposits rather than just given payment details, they were given priority, even though I booked the room through this website before the majority of guests. As I was in tears at reception, because I was made to feel as if I had done something wrong, another receptionist took pity on me and tried to help with the goodwill gesture. The Duty Managers said that I had to put up with a smoking twin as that was all that was left. Not at all impressed with website or hotel

              • Couple
                10.0

                very comfortable room, clean, all facilities

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                room was comfy. staff polite and helpfull, breakfast was great

                backed on to two very noisey clubs. the evening meal was not good at all, the films on pay per veiw wer too dark to watch

              • Couple
                7.4

                nice staff,clean rooms good value for money,near to leisure park with pubs restuarants,cinema,10 pin bowling etc
