“COLD ROOM”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2010

Stayed at the OCTAVIA 28/7 for 3 nights. The family room consisted of double bed and bunk beds.
The quilt on our bed had seen better days, pillows lumpy, bunkbeds pillows lumpy. The chair in the room had a large stain on it and was covered with a brown throw. The quilt covers were clean but the sheet on the double bed was bobbly and uncomfortable.
Shower hot,tiny room really difficult to get access to the toilet paper so we just put in on top of the cistern. There was black mould on the ceiling above the shower.
Towels were clean.
Plenty of tea, coffee and milk and sugar in the room. The window openers were quite high up i had to use a chair to close them.
The radiator in the room did not work when we mentioned it nothing happened, we did get very wet one day and had nowhere to put our wet clothes , and our towels were wet and the room felt damp, no radiator in the bathroom either.
Breakfast ok looked a bit warmed up, the kids only got one sausage and beans , they was not asked if they wanted a drink!
For the money we paid not bad close to the funfair and waterpark , some houses in a bad state near the octavia, car parking a nightmare we did in the end find a spot and did not move

Stayed July 2010, traveled with family

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

Myself and partner took ourselves away for the weekend at the last minute and booked up with the Octavia two days before we left, not expecting too much, I was very very pleased with our stay.
On arrival we got parked on the street with no problems, Darren welcomed us at the3 front door and was very pleasant.
Rooms were very comfortable and clean with everything you expect.
Breakfast was served with a smile and offers of extra tea, coffee, toast was always being offered.
We never used the lounge but looked ideal, and would likely have used it had we took our kids.
We rarely heard any of the other guests some of which had young children
Which was a bonus as we were trying to recharge our batteries and get a break from our own kids.
I would absolutely book with Lisa & Darren again and look forward to a longer stay xx
