Stayed for 3 nights in a 2-bed suite with my young family (ages 3 and 1). Had a very pleasant stay - the room was very spacious, great location (at the quieter, more accessible end of Gurney drive), staff very welcoming and eager to help, and food was good value (both buffet and a la carte). There is a separate swimming pool for kids complete with fountains, slides etc. - my boys loved it. The downsides? Hotel definitely needs updating (worn carpets, mould in shower, but otherwise very clean). The difficult thing to overlook though is that the pipes/ water pumps are very noisy i.e. we could hear when water is on in the adjoining room and we made it a point to not use our showers once both boys were asleep as the noise of the water pump would wake them up. A real shame as otherwise we would have had no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
