Hotel was very nice with good views .. Room was a little cramped for an executive room.. restaurant was very expensive and not worth it ... Would stop at Bell's field in the future as same price and much better with its own parking instead of £20 valet parking

Good3.0 / 5
Not worth the price tag
The room was spacious and clean but hadn't been set up to accommodate my son (who was included in the booking), housekeeping rectified this quite quickly. Toiletries had only been provided for one guest, luckily we always take our own just in case, but for the cost of the room we weren't expecting to need them. The cooked breakfast was of a lower standard than we experience in a budget chain experience (watery tasteless beans, greasy hash brown, snotty egg etc.). We enjoyed being able to spend time in the pool after we had checked out but found some of the facilities lacking e.g. my son (10 years) and I had to use the disabled changing facility as the hotel policy prevented him using the ladies change with me, the disabled shower did not drain properly meaning there was nowhere we could stand to get dry, there was no costume spinner in the disabled changing room and the one in the ladies change was broken (as was one of the hairdryers). Thankfully one of the male staff accompanied my son to use the spinner in the men's change. Overall we were happy with our stay, however if we hadn't been using our hotels.com free night we wouldn't have been happy with the price.
