Good Points Good entertainment for the children with music and activities Staff were great and entertaining Pirate room was good and kids were excited to stay there, seemed clean but I wasn’t on my hands and knees checking the skirting. Beds were clean and comfy Bad Points Room 228 shower was a dribble and I mean dribble Could have done with more tables and chairs for the amount of guests that were staying probably COVID related The bar is so small it takes forever to get served Breakfast bags in the room when you arrive ended up very warm Scooter trail ended up disappointing as there was no prize for the kids just a little crappy gem type stone Overall we enjoyed our 1 night stay in the pirate room, the room was hot but we created a draft with a trainer in the door, most Uk hotels don’t have air con so no point moaning about it. The breakfast bags could have been better even if just delivered in the morning so they were cool and fresh. I think things like the shower should have been checked before reopening from COVID. We would stay again but would probably look to book the caravans at the back of the hotel so we could have a better breakfast etc.

We booked three nights in the pirate theme room, and left after two nights because it was so bad. Where the bunk beds are has no ventilation so was like trying to sleep in a sauna, and I ended up pulling the mattress off the bunk and putting next to the main bed as there was slightly more air. No air con and no fan, so I was advised to go to asda to buy one - really? Bed sheets were filthy so I had to ask them to be changed. The lady from reception came to look at them and said they had someone who cleaned the room, and then someone else who went around and checked the rooms afterwards, and it was strange I had not noticed this the first night. It's always nice to infer blame onto your guests isn't it, I felt such a valued customer at that moment. Food is shockingly poor. First night was BBQ night so you had a choice of pizza, burger or hotdog (nothing for vegetarians or vegans if that's your thing). Children had a marginally better choice as they could have spaghetti bolognese, chicken nuggets, pizza or burger. Be aware children's meals come with chips and salad - I've rarely seen a child eat salad! The man serving on the BBQ "washed his hands" before starting to prepare our burgers. This involved rinsing his hands under running water and drying them, before shoving his unsanatised and ungloved hands into the salad to put on our burger buns - nice! Second night was a bit more choice - mixed grill, steak, hunters chicken, chicken tikka masala, pizza, or burgers - there was a Quorn burger on the menu which I excitedly ordered only to be asked if I wanted bacon on it?? Children had the usual menu as the night before but with the addition of hot dog with chips and beans. My daughter chose this as she loves beans, so you can imagine the disappointment on her face when the beans arrived in the tiniest plastic tub you ever did see; two spoons and they were gone. We didn't get breakfast the following morning because we were three minutes late and the kitchen had stopped serving it's gourmet offering of sausage bap or bacon bap. We did have it on the second morning, and our three naps arrived in two cardboard trays, so I had mine on a napkin - I don't know about you, but if my food is hot I quite like to be able to put it down, so a plate would have come in handy, or even a third wasteful, non environmentally friendly cardboard tray. Also, weird that a hotel that caters specifically for children doesn't have children's cutlery. Good job we took our own. I spoke to reception who informed me that the menu changed every day, and that night there would be hunters chicken and chicken tikka masala on the menu - ah, leftovers from the night before then. No thanks, we're going home to find those elusive things called vegetables that apparently they cannot get in Warrington. Safe to say that was the worst place I've ever stayed, and thoroughly disappointing considering we had paid extra for the pirate room, only to leave after the second night. Definitely never going there again!

We booked a night away for our daughters birthday, we had an amazing time! The hotel was clean and the hotel room was nice and big. Nice little breakfast bag too was an added lovely touch! We spent the full days in the park which I can honestly say was amazing! We loved every second of our weekend away! Thank you very much! We will definitely be back :)

A great stay for kids. After a full day in the theme park we were warmly welcomed. Quick shower then downstairs for the kids entertainment that ran from 4 till 7. Cookie Monster even gave all the kids a glass of milk and cookie before bed. Menu is highly limited for adults, especially if you had lunch in the park as it is pretty much the same. All in all a good stay. Clean room with a nice balcony to relax on.

I really liked this hotel, we had a pirate themed room for 2 nights, thur-sat, the room was clean and really well decorated, we were really impressed, we also got plenty of coffee, tea, milk and sugar etc for our stay. The staff were friendly and our son loved the meet and greet the characters. I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The only negative would be the other guests. The thur night was really quiet, I don’t think there were many guests at the hotel . Friday night was different. I’m not sure why people can’t just close hotel doors quietly. Lots of slamming of doors and kids banging around.. like they were jumping on the floor dancing/ bouncing a ball or something. It’s not something I’d let my child do in a hotel when I knew other guests would be below or next door but that’s just me. That’s not the hotels fault though. I think If we came again we’d come mid week to avoid the extra noise. the breakfast was a brown bag with a croissant, piece of fruit, a mini muffin and apple juice. If I could change anything I would request they put on a continental breakfast buffet instead. The restaurant area could be set up on a morning for toast, croissants, cereals etc… maybe coffee machine.. it would be a lot better than the bags. All in all though it’s a great little find for a theme park visit.
