First time here with friends and family.
Rooms were ok, pretty sad looking on the furniture and decor side but the size of them was good.
Leisure centre is great, kids loved it but the fun hour in the pool didn't really scream fun.
Kids liked the buffet at night, good choices and nothing that a kid wouldn't eat so for once when going away, my kids actually had clear plates at the end.
Food for adults was good, my wife loved the dining room but the head waiter on our first night must have been new as the waiters/waitresses seemed to have to pick up the slack that night.
Breakfast is great, seriously good spread and you have the choice of cooked to order/buffet/ cereal so it really suited everyone.
There were actually a few other guests that ruined it for us, obviously regular guests at the hotel (as we heard them say so many times) and the way they spoke to staff was a disgrace. My wife came back to the room disgusted at how one woman had treated the staff, I really did pity the staff as they got a lot of flack due to the hotel needin a good clean and some upgrading.
Reception staff were good, my kids are at the age where they want to show everyone their toys and on bookin in the girl made a big deal about the toys they showed (shoved in her face) and even better explained the kids stuff to them and not just to us. Was good as sometimes you feel kids are ignored and it meant that if we passed reception the kids would say hi to them.
Worry that people actually think someone on reception is to blame for the pool not being to their standard.
The deals are good so well worth going, our room had a good view and to my wife that made a difference. One thing I would say is the kids stuff is only aimed at under 6's, mine weren't really into it, again probably needs lookin at to try and get their attention more.
The internet access is bad, takes forever, no signal and needs a number to send a text code?Found it tedious.
