We decided to stay here for an economical 1 night hotel stay. We got a really warm reception & a very kind woman getting everything sorted in our room (the settee had been made up as a bed for our 10 month old son instead of a cot - I had requested the cot). She very quickly got the settee unmade & got the cot for us. In addition, she was very helpful to explain the meal ticket vouchers for the next door service area eatery. (You pay £7.50 for £10 worth of voucher to eat next door.)
Our room had a fantastic view of the lake. Otherwise it was a bit disappointing. There was mould on the bathroom ceiling above the bath and in the corner by the bathroom door. Our heated towel rail did not work at all. The floor didn't appear to have been vacuumed as when we sat on the floor to play with our baby, we could see various things (bits of food, dirt, etc.) on it. Along the bottom of the bed where there is a fabric panel, it was covered with dog fur. I think it's great that the hotel takes dogs for dog owners. But I'd also hope they'd thoroughly vacuum a room once a pet has departed and they obviously didn't... & lastly, which was the main concern, our mattress was horrid. It was very springy & obviously either incredibly cheap to start with or long overdue to replace. The springs on it were something you could feel when you rolled over in bed - not good.
It was a cheaper place to stay, but not that cheap when compared to a B&B for example - it was still £60 for the room for the night. And by the time we paid for the vouchers for the meals next door, it added up fast. So, unless you have a pet or get a REALLY cheap rate, I'd give it a miss.
Dinner at the service area eatery was fine. It was junk food, but still freshly prepared & decent value for money. Breakfast, however, was a different story. The eggs were cooked fresh, but the only choice was fried. You only got 1 piece of toast with your breakfast, no tea or coffee. And it was REALLY pricey. So, perhaps buy 2 vouchers for breakfast or eat elsewhere if you can.
We won't stay there again, but we definitely appreciated the very nice & helpful woman on reception.
