Arrived on a Tuesday for the triple treat package with my better half and my son. From start to finish the standard of service from reception, gym,bar and restaurant staff was professional, attentive and very pleasant and confident. They also kindly inform all guests at night what time kids must leave the bar area which I thought was a very... More

The lovely, friendly, "seated," non-expressive, and yawning, receptionist personified this hotel. Then there was the Absolute worst hotel/B&B bed ever! Pleasant, untrained restaurant staff worked hard, food was good. This is a 3 star airport hotel without the airport. Never again. Full stop!

Can't recommend this hotel enough. Staff are amazing, couldn't do enough for us. Food was super, and menu was different on both nights. Room was spacious, only down fall was breakfast, not great, can be noisy. Great value for money, would highly recommend this hotel to any family. Very family oriented. Will go again.

We used the leisure facilities during our stay, it was great to wake up and go down for a lovely swim. The breakfast in the hotel is once of the nicest I've had out of all the... More
