This hotel is child friendly. If I didn't have kids I wouldn't stay there. They cater very well for kids with activities, playgrounds (outside and in), crazy golf and evening shows. But I don't think I have ever seen so many children in a hotel before. The hotel is dated. We stayed in a premium room and to be honest... More

While waiting for my room to be ready I waited on a sofa in the lounge area, only to get up and realise that the cushion was wet. Smelled it and realised it was urine - not impressed. Brought it to the attention of the manager only for her to just say sorry (no offer to wash jeans or any... More

On arrival on 13th Aug we got a musty smelling small supposedly superior " renovated " room. When we complained we were moved to a similar room but without the musty smell at least.
