We arrived at the hotel and was impressed with the re-furb. Reception was slow and whilst checking in perused the menu. We were then told we could not ask for food as the hotel was full and they were too busy! Rooms contemporary and comfortably furnished. Unfortunately we were placed in the middle of a row of rooms with a women's welsh rugby team who were keen to run between the rooms with various drinks. Shower water was freezing cold looked to contact reception, no phones in rooms! Rang the outside line several times and eventually a porter advised us that the boiler had gone out. Decided to go for a drink at the bar had to wait 75mins for a glass of wine because they had wedding parties and a fancy dress party and needed to re-stock. The noise continued outside all night at least until 5.30am. Unfortunately for the hotel it suffered a water leak in the morning! Consequently two days with no shower! Although I expect the hotel would like to lose the Pontins reputation it will need to work a lot harder as you could get a better service elsewhere for the money.
