Good stopover during Christmas visits.
Posted Dec 31, 2016
Great location for a stopover between family visits. Nice to arrive , easy check in. Lovely Christmas tree in reception. A nice clean room. Big bed king size I think and a double sofa for two children and myself. Room a bit chilly but adjustable. No fridge for use. Dining in room options but we met with a friend for dinner. Nice comfy sofas for hanging out. Bar prices are very steep. A little confusion re dining as informed restaurant open at 6.30 though we spotted lots eating . This transpired that you cannot eat in the actual restaurant but the same menu is available anyway . A free buffet was available for under 10s. DD ,four, liked this but the chips were not good as has been sitting out for some time and luke warm. Sausages yummy though I am informed! I think last time we chose free from the menu which I think is better but I get that it is quicker. The staff were helpful, DD didn't like deserts that were out and they quickly said she could have ice cream which I really appreciated. The two steaks we had were lovely really nicely cooked. My son had pizza looked lovely and my friends son fish and chips very nice. Just one thing it is very bright in the restaurants all the lights were full on think I prefer the lighting in the bar area but now I am just being picky!
Bottled water available in the room and a kettle for tea and coffee. Come morning we had a very nice buffet breakfast and then a fabulous swim. Pool lovely. CHeckout not until 12 ! How civilised!
