Found this hotel via laterooms and was very pleased with it. On the laterooms form we asked for a cot, then later I rang the hotel as I wanted to make sure they knew; when we arrived they didn't have the request on the laterooms booking but did have it elsewhere. Based on the laterooms form they had selected a double room with bunk beds but they very quickly changed it for one with a double bed, a single and a cot, which was also much more accessible with the pushchair. All the staff were lovely - they even kept my grandson's fresh milk in their fridge, labelled as ours. The breakfast waitress was bemused by our request for a boiled egg 'with soldiers' for the baby but must have taken the trouble to ask in the kitchen as the egg duly arrived with two fingers of toast! The breakfasts were good, the one evening meal we had was equally good and the drinks weren't as overpriced as some hotel bars. Really the only minor drawback was that the sockets in the bedroom were inaccessible - you had to pull the (very comfortable) beds out to get to them! Oh and a switch by the beds for the central light would have been nice but again, only a minor issue. All in all a good experience made even better by the wonderful staff.
