Took our two grandchildren (aged 2 and 4) for a weekend and had an absolutely fantastic time. The hosts were superb, they could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was lovely, room was clean and tidy and the kids can't wait to go back again to see the illuminations. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
