This is my easiest 5 star review! This hotel offers a huge range of activities - both indoor and outdoor - plus lovely food and great staff. It is not without fault. Although clean and overall well maintained, the decor is very dated and some of the entertainments (such as the 10 pin bowling and air hockey) didn't work very... More

Excellent break during terrible wet windy weather! Excellent food and super New years eve party fun with hats & balloons buzzing around the dining room. Great spa & craft activities just not enough time to do everything!

Bit of a poor mans cen*****rcs but you know kids were always busy and it's great value for money. Really missed having a nice place to go to to chat / relax as all very rundown and circa 1970's. However made candles, etched glasses, made ceramics, ate well and hardly saw my very happy kids so it was great for... More

Loads of activities to keep you occupied. Jacuzzi, gym, swimming, archery, bowling, shooting and table tennis were all tried amongst others. Really enjoyed a weekend there. Would like to have tried some of the craft activities but all places did fill up quickly. Will go back.

I visited for a long weekend as part of a party of 60 people and we all had a great time. So many craft and sporting activities on offer that we have already booked for a further visit to continue having new experiences. The choice and variety of food on offer couldn't be faulted. The staff were friendly. My single... More

Activities galore- trouble is they're restricted to small numbers so if you haven't managed to write your name on the list before its full the said activities are limited to what you could get at an indoor play centre. Incredibly expensive for the shoddy room and bed. Never tried to sleep on such an uncomfortable bed in my life. Every... More

This hotel is excellent. Great food,friendly staff,loads to do for the kids.We rushed from activity to activity and the day wasn't long enough to fit everything in. The decor is a bit dated but that's not a huge problem. Highly recommended for families.

Been coming here through my childhood with my family. And recently been just with my girlfriend. We love it and keep coming back. There are lots of people complaining about the food, room, and carpet quality. If you're looking for modern, posh, ritz style accommodation with fine dining, then go elsewhere, it isn't the purpose of the place! The rooms... More
