We had a lovely 2 night stay in this hotel, however I feed its more like a 4.5 star than 5 star.
I could not fault the staff. they were superb , very helpful and very pleasant.
Rooms were lovely, reception area bright and airy with lots of seating.
The pool completely let the hotel down as did the walled garden and crazy golf. For a 5 star hotel you would be expecting a lot more.
On the plus side, there were bikes you could take out.
Hotel has its own cinema room where children or adults could pick out a dvd and have it shown on the big screen. This was a great hit.
Children also got milk and cookies before bed.
There was a kids club.
Breakfast was excellent, we ate in Tuppers bar one night and again this was very good.
There was a lot of families staying in this hotel
Overall a lovely hotel but some areas just left it down and that why its not quiet a 5 star.
