We stopped as a couple on a week day in April when a stay was on offer so excellent value for money.
These are basically shipping containers with beds and a wet room, although small they are perfectly formed. Our room, number 14, was spotlessly clean and the beds are very very comfy, just what you want after being on your feet all day and chucked about on the rides.
Our room had towels, shampoo, shower gel sachets and bottles of drinking water. There is also a safe for you to use.
The 'top' entertainment at night was just giant jenga, giant connect four, ping pong and a couple of quizzes but this didn't bother us the bar was open till midnight I think. Maybe the entertainment would be different in peak season.
We found the continental breakfast adequate and all the staff very helpful and friendly.
I must mention that the bathroom door is frosted glass with the handle being a hole in the glass around crotch height (The film porkies comes to mind!!) so be aware if you are stopping with kids (other people you may not want seeing the family jewels when showering)
The food prices are reasonable for a theme park
We would and will stop there again at some point as we felt we got our monies worth getting on the rides first in the morning is a bonus over 2 days we went on them all 3 times or more.
