When we pulled up to the hotel, we were a bit wary as the front looks a bit grim. On the left hand side there was what we descibed to each other as a 'Pontins' like frontage. Wooden doors leading onto a railed long balcony which had a climbing plant running over it. It didn't help that there were no leaves on the plant as yet, so it looked dead!
Having said all that, we were pleasantly surprised!
Our family room was a very good size, quite often when there are 4 beds it is very cramped, but we had a large double bed, a larger than average single and a single folding guest bed, which my son aged 12 said was uncomfortable.
The room was clean and tidy, ready made up and the bottled water was a lovely touch. We were staying for one night to coincide with a trip to the Harry Potter Tour. The breakfast was good overall, but the sausages let the quality down.
Overall, good value for money.
