Firstly, the rooms were great. Very spacious, clean and everything we needed. However, the real let down of this hotel are the staff. We arrived in the early evening with our 6 year old after a long day at Legoland so we decided to eat in the bar downstairs. Everything seemed fine, it was very quiet - only 4 tables... More

Stayed here for 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast with my husband and our 2 year old son. Decided to upgrade to an upper deck room and for just £20 a night extra, I think it was well worth it. We got a large, nicely decorated room, Starbucks drinks in the room and Sky package. We were also lucky enough... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights with bed and breakfast and evening meal on the first night as a gift package. Check in (and out) was efficient, quick and polite; no hold-ups or problems. We had an "upper deck" room which was comfortable, of a good size and clean. The bed was large and comfortable too. The window... More

Stayed here for one night as a stopover with our 18month old. We booked this hotel at very short notice through booking.com and chose it because of the reviews here and the fact everything was onsite including a swimming pool. Good points first: The hotel is only a few mins off the M4 so a good stop over point and... More

Visited here for one night on our way to Devon. I'm a member of the Velocity gym so got a good discount on the room (£70 for a standard family room with breakfast included). All the staff we encountered were very pleasant, friendly and the reception staff in particular made a real fuss of our little girl, which she loved!... More

Having stayed here a number of times in a fab room, the breakfast always is the icing on the cake. The breakfast manager, Ersin, is always friendly and very welcoming and the personal touch is that he always remembers us. Keep up the great work xxx
