Arrived and checked in without any problems - early Friday evening - very, very busy. Our room was on the floor below reception and out of the way. The room was quite nice, with TV, kettle, with 2 biscuits for 3 people and when they were replenished the next day still only 2!!!!!
Bath was not a full size bath but adequate and the shower was nice. Only had 2 bath towels but couldn't be bothered to walk the long walk to reception to ask for more !!! Suppose we could have phoned but it was late on so didn't bother. But really the room was only equipped for two people!!!! Its the little things that count!! Mattress was really hard and uncomfortable and the kids running up and down the corridor were a nuisance!!!! Had wifi in the room which was nice though.
Had a Pizza the first night in Ma Garita's bar - was lovely £18.00 for a 16", and sides £2.25 each. Drinks about £3.50 a pint. ~The pizza was nice though.
Breakfast was lovely, bit mad though especially between 8 and 10 a.m. Had a meal on the Saturday night at the all you can eat Flambo's buffet which was £19.99 a head and £15.99 for teens. - Kids got free refillable drinks though which was good. The buffet was lovely with a lovely salad bar, Lots of Grilled meats, jacket potatoes, chips and a couple of roasts. Some nice Deserts and cheese board too.
The water park is a bit of a disappointment.... very small and only had 3 slides!! lazy river was tiny. I would think it would be quite good for small kids.
Because we used our Tesco vouchers for Alton Towers we didn't get the hour early passes so we bought them for £10 each which was an absolute waste of money.....We got to the park itself and they just let everyone in who was there at 9 o'clock!!! got on 2 rides and so did the rest of the crowd!!! no-one was asked for an early pass or none were checked - feel totally diddled as got nothing for the extra money. And would have thought just paying the high prices for the hotel should entitle you to the hours early access.... especially if people who aren't staying in the hotel get it!!!. So do not bother paying for this.
Overall a pleasant stay but wouldn't stay again!
