stayed here over easter with my husband and two young children - great hotel - just two minor criticisms:
1) our room and the restaurant could have benefitted from a bit more attention to detail on the cleaning front - the bedside tables/lamps and windowsill were all quite dusty which I know is a small thing but the restaurant was unfortunately similarly maintained in that the insides of the windows, window sills and the table tops were quite grubby (dead flies on the window sills etc).
2) whilst the pool is lovely, over half its width is cordoned off for lane swimming (2 lanes) although I only witnessed 2 or 3 people lane swimming – this leaves just a narrow strip of less than half the pool width in which to swim and play with kids that were too big to spend time in the kids pool (which in itself was great and very safe for our 3 year old) – so we and several other families were vying for space with kids bumping into eachother etc in the remainder of the pool – not a big thing but definitely something I would rethink if I were managing the pool area
So, as I said, only small things. All that said, the staff were great and the hotel is extremely kid friendly – I will likely return.
