Great room with a beautiful view
Posted Oct 6, 2015
Staff was very friendly and offered so much advice on things to do.
We stayed in room # 914 - stunning view and very high quality room - rooms 909 - 915 will have the best views with 913, 914 and 915 having the very best. That being said, I would not stay at this hotel again if I wasn't guaranteed a room in the 909-915 room block as the other rooms have limited to no view at all. I would always pay & upgrade to get one of these rooms.
Reception - the reception space is lacking due to construction. When we arrived on September 24, 2015 the reception/ check in was in a small hotel room right when you enter the grounds. It's was a bit weird and cramped but the staff was very friendly.
Restaurant - due to the construction there was no bar which after reading other reviews was a cheaper dining option and often times the food was better than their dinner menu. We had to eat their lunch or dinner menu everyday which was sort of expensive and the food was just ok - after reading numerous reviews, our expectation was set pretty low for food at the restaurants in the park so this wasn't unexpected. Dinner and lunch were 4 courses and you could order a complete menu or you could remove any of the courses that you wished. Breakfast was a buffet of exactly what we expected: meats, cheeses, bread, jam, cereal - the regular things. You can also order eggs if you'd like and they don't always ask you if you want them but if you ask any of the staff, they'll be happy to make them.
