We (myself, my husband, 2 children aged 5 & 2 and my mum) stayed here for 3 nights (Sun - Wed) in 2 interconnecting rooms. We were visiting Legoland which was only about a 5 minute drive away.
Check in was quick and uncomplicated, we went to our 1st floor rooms and the boys were delighted with their activity packs. The Molton Brown toiletries are a lovely touch, as were the tower fans in each room as it was very hot. There are no locks inside the bedroom doors, only a security chain which our children quickly learned how to unhook and they managed to get out on a few occasions - good in event of a fire, but not good with a toddler escape artist!! We ate dinner outside in the garden. The meal arrived reasonably quickly and was enjoyed by all, although we definitely noticed the southern prices!
There are signs in reception and it is noted in the hotel info in the rooms - please be warned - DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN UNSUPERVISED NEAR THE POND. There were about 9 children playing around the pond, some aged only 2 or 3 with parents sitting over at the picnic tables. This is too far away. Our 2 year old fell in the pond and we were sat on the bench beside it. In the SECONDS it took my husband to pull him out, he was face down and motionless. Frightening. The hotel has warned it's guests, it is not their fault, however perhaps they may have to consider some kind of fencing or CCTV? The receptionist was quick to fetch us a towel but no accident form was filled in.
Housekeeping was faultless, everywhere was clean and there was always an abundance of clean towels. We had no problems with noise of any kind. Breakfast was wonderful, plenty of choice, no waiting and the cooked breakfasts were yummy.
The staff were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't say this was a 3* hotel, more a 4*. We were very pleased with our find and we thought it was good value for money.
