Previous visits to Leisureplex hotels (Hydro, Llandudno and Queens, Blackpool) for turkey and tinsel have been thoroughly enjoyable and this could have been just as good - if only the organisation had been as good as the staff! The staff worked hard, the rooms were of good quality and the... More

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, if not a little dated but that is quite subjective. The staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. Breakfast was served by a waiter with lots of choice, very nicely... More
