This was my 1st visit to this hotel. I paid over £300 for 2nights B&B for a family of four. We stayed there fom Nov 2nd until Nov 4th. The hotel is very handy for The Pleasure Beach. I was able to pick my park tickets I had booked online from reception. The hotel has its own park entrance which saves time. Check in was smooth. The hotel has a large car park for guests. We had a superior family room. It was nice, nothing flash though. It was clean, and the bed was comfy. The kids had their own sleeping area with bunk beds and each bed had its own TV. The bathroom was nice, and the shower was good. Tea and coffee making facilities were on hand, as well as a hair drier and iron. The food in the resteraunt was nice but very over priced in my opinion. Also had a long wait between each course. It is not a five star hotel mind you. I would honestly rate it a 3.5. Breakfast was good, but slightly lacking in items on the cooked menu. I heard someone say you had to pay exta for mushrooms! Sleep quality was very good. I would go back to this hotel, but would be looking for a better price deal in the future. It describes itself as a boutique hotel. But if you know what this means, you will see it clearly isn't.
