Me my hubby and two daughters have just returned from a 3 night stay.
Now I'm trying to put this in the nicest way possible........
On our arrival the location was not as EXPECTED, when looking on the website it appeared to be in a quiet area, but instead it was basically on a busy roundabout with sirens at night.
The Receptionist greeted us and with a kind sympathetic smile told us our room was on the top floor.
Three flights of steep stairs later we reached our rooms!!! There is no lifts!!!
The room was nice clean and tidy with plenty of room.
Now all I can say though there was no air con in these rooms and it was very warm and sticky all the time, even with the window open !!
The staff did give me 3 fans which unfortunately did not really help
( I think I could of blew colder air myself!!!)
The beds I we found were rather uncomfortable too.
The bathroom was lovely and tidy with shower cubicle.
We booked here for closeness to Alton Towers and basically it was a lot further than we EXPECTED as with all the little country lanes in which we had to drive it was a good hour there and back!!!
We booked one meal deal and ate once there and paid.
The Breakfast was nice though they seem to be out of stock on certain things that where on the menu and where waiting for delivery. Cooked fresh.
Bar snacks and sandwiches where nice but little pricey as of the drinks, £3.60 for pint of lager.
Main Menu was not enough choice as of the kids menu as well found it hard to choose especially with kids.
Staff where really friendly and pleasant, (though on checkout day cleaner nearly walked in room , (even when door had a do not disturb sign on), then followed to come in again to ask what time we we're leaving!!! lol
Overall it is a nice hotel/lodge but if you are looking for a family base to go to Alton Towers on a cheaper budget stick to Premier Inns as they are much better and value for money...
