Stayed one night in a family room on the ground floor. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Good value for money. Dinner was OK in the evening, but breakfast was really poor quality; children very disappointed! Good to have the option of the pool and spa. Just wish the water in the pool had not looked a little murky....

Excellent hotel for a family stay after visiting Warner Bros Harry Potter studios, two large rooms for three adults and five children who loved being able to use the swimming pool. jacuzzi, steam room and sauna both in the evening and morning before we left. Also enjoyed the freshly cooked and tasty breakfast.

Room was a decent size for family, our little girl loved her bed which was very comfortable. Location was great and so was the price. Bath was disgusting however, as it needed cleaning before it was used.
