5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The whole experience was brilliant. Would highly recommend staying at the hotel. It can be costly but to us it made our trip and I’m so glad we decided to stay. The staff was amazing from the moment we walked in and nothing was a bother. My sons face the whole time was a picture. We are thinking about booking again for Halloween/Christmas.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
The price was comparable to a Travelodge but the hotel much more child orientated, Travelodges don't have live tortoises in reception. Assuming you are going to the park then this is a good option. Go B&B as the breakfast buffet is good and dinner isn't, it's over priced theme park food. Rooms were clean and tidy but some of the public areas look a bit tired. Still the best option if you want to stay at or near the park

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Not up to the standard you would expect for the price paid. Multiple maintenance issues in the room and cleanliness was not what you expect, especially in current pandemic. Bar tables not cleaned, once our order arrived table was then wiped, but only around the drinks that we had purchased. Breakfast was good, service was friendly and efficient however it was buffet service not plated as was told on the phone when booking.

hotel for kids, though not a peaceful nights sleep
Hotel was pleasant, however we were placed in a room next to the main stairwell and constantly heard the fire stairwell door slamming. Also signage to encourage families to be considerate of others who may be sleeping e.g. children from 8pm would be appreciated. As screaming children running up and down the corridors till nearly 10pm. Apart from this kids loved the pool and chessington’s. Food was generally overcooked and menu extremely average at hotel restaurants.
