We were a little worried that following the takeover things would have changed but they have been improved. It looks like it's been a softly, softly approach, they still have the wonderful friendly and accommodating staff. The pool, sports facilities and childrens activies are brilliant. The restaurant and food are first class and the beer selection has been enhanced. We... More

I was slightly dubious about booking the Hydro due to the recent Trip Advisor reviews since being under new ownership. I has stayed two or three times previously and despite the faded glory quite liked the hotel. For this trip I booked two night last minute special B&B deal from the hotels website for a single room. I was expecting... More

Stayed here on a recent Groupon deal. Superb value, beautiful feature bedroom. Excellent facilities on site, swimming pool which is very family friendly, small play park for kids, tennis courts, big chess board, mini golf and also organised activities like rounders and jogging. Great breakfast in the morning and you're allowed to use the facilities all day on the day... More

I have been visiting this hotel for years. This year it was clear that the hotel is tired and needs an injection of TLC to bring it into the 21 st century . The swimming pool area needs air conditioning and the showers etc needs a complete renovation. We had a swim lunch which us good value . The restaurant... More

I booked this hotel up at the last minute due to the severe weather conditions. I was a wee bit apprehensive due to some mixed reviews, but as the weather conditions were so bad I decided to just book it. I paid £45 for a large single room with en suite, breakfast and access to the leisure facilities. A good... More

I've left writing this review for a couple of months as I was not look forward to doing it. We have been going to the "Hydro" as a family for over 30 years, but I personally had not been for a couple of years. What a change, for me it was hard to accept, the place is so run down... More

For a one night stay, the hotel was ok. We had one big room near the car park and one in the main building. The hotel is outdated and the service is not excellent, but it does the job.The rooms were clean, the pool changing rooms were dirty. There seemed to be a lot going on for kids, so it... More

The driveway to the hotel in need of resurfacing, lots of potholes and large ruts in the road. The front of the hotel looks amazing with all the period features, although the main staircase looks good in need of some TLC, stair rods could have done with a polish as this is the first place visitors see and first impressions...

We stayed here almost 7 years after our last visit, for a post GCSE golf break for our son. Not a lot had changed in 7 years, and if I was being pedantic, the grounds were not as well looked after. However, we only paid £80 per room B&B, and in terms if value for money it was excellent. Weather... More

Before I start this review, I have to say that it was with some worry, that i booked my wife's birthday celebrations event around this Hotel. I had read on this site some horrific reviews, and some I might add that even appeared to be vindictive. Yes, the hotel is somewhat time warped, Yes it has been allowed to get... More
