We gained cool points for choosing the punk room for them and we had the very grown up boudoir room with wirlpool bath.We arrived 8.30 pm to a warm and friendly welcome. Breakfast... More

Who would ever think anything could top Alton Towers for the grandchildren ? Well the Flintstones room did it for the girls and ourselves. Lynne was most welcoming and looked after us so well with that very special attention to detail. Breakfast was super with plenty of choice. We will certanly return next school holidays. Thanks for a great experence

A perfect start to his Birthday. I must add that breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We stayed in the Flintstone room, which was a... More
