This Hotel sits very near to the M4 so is ideal for Windsor & Legoland. They are no more than a 10 minute drive away.
There is also ample free parking.
We checked in pretty late on the eve of Easter Weekend and were seen to with minimum fuss, politeness and a smile. We were given a room on the Ground floor around the corner from the bar and restaurant.
We had an upgraded Executive Room which was reasonably spacious, modern decor, LCD TV and had 2 double beds.. great if you have 2 kids with you. There was complimentary water and fully stocked tea/coffee making facilities. The only thing that let the room down was the bathroom.. it was incredibly tiny and looked well used; thankfully the over bath shower was powerful and hot.
We found the staff were very attentive, helpful and always pleasant. Breakfast in the restaurant was laid out very nicely and had a decent selection of cereals and hot food. We were asked numerous times if we required any special orders or any assistance and the used plates were cleaned very quickly.
The best part for us was the swimming pool.. they had a little baby pool, a decent size Leisure pool and a Jacuzzi. We were told not to swim on one side of the pool as it was for the regular health club members and yet one of the same members was swimming on the side where we were and boy was he grumpy.. apart from that and a very cold changing room it was nice to take the kids in for a quick dip.
Just outside the bar seating area was a nice little kiddies play area, with books, building blocks and some toys to keep the little ones busy for a while.. not seen something like this over here in the UK in many hotels.
Also we made a request for full fat baby milk had no problem whatsoever on 2 occasions and they warmed it up as we requested.. that was really nice to see.
Booked in advance you could get a room at this Hotel for a very decent £50 per room per night. As it was we paid close on double that for a weekday which was probably on the high side.
In summary, not just an overnight budget hotel but a pleasant stay made better with the family focus, pleasant staff and great Leisure pool. Would definitely recommend a stop over.
