Looking at the negative reviews I can understand how it could be noisy as it is a great family hotel so expect a lot of kids! Also, we had a small wait for breakfast on the Saturday morning but we didn't really stay at a busy time and breakfast was pretty busy when we were there.
We stayed in a double room, it was really spacious and modern with a little seating area around a ornamental fireplace. The bathroom was spacious and clean. No complaints at all about the room.
The breakfast was lovely, with a selection of full english, muffins, croissants, cereals, fruit, juice and hot drinks. All self service so you can have whatever you want.
The location was great for the Pleasure Beach (right next to it) and it's also quite close to the Sandcastle Waterpark but the Tower and amusements are a good 20 minute walk
My only slight complaint (not with the hotel!) is that everything was closed whilst we were there (Pleasure Beach and Tower) but I guess I should have done a bit more research!
I would definitely recommend the hotel and it seems like a great place for kids. I can imagine there might be a bit of noise from the Pleasure Beach too (when it's open) but none of these issues were encountered by me!
