If you're a Virgin Holiday customer you do get free parking and one o'clock check out which is great when you have an evening flight. The road works outside were a nuisance. Read less

The staff are amazing ..always helpful and happy to have a chat with you ..nothing is too much trouble .. We always ask to stay in the garden rooms in block 15/16 or 17.. We like this area as it is quiet.. The breakfast is soooo good...so much choice... We occasionally have our evening meal in the restaurant, this too is excellent.. May I just say a big thank you to April Willis and all the staff for making our stay so brilliant. Read less

This is our third stay at this hotel and we are sorry to say it was probably our last. We only stayed for 5 nights this time and so just booked into a standard room, we were put into building 6 over... Read more looking the children's pool. Our room was fine, same decor as our previous stays and I like the separate sink area however the bathroom is looking very old! Hinges on the door were all rusty, the tap in the bath was coming away from the wall and the shower curtain did not fit resulting in water flooding the bathroom every time we showered. The room also felt very dark, there is not enough lighting- this was not helped by one of our lamps not working, we reported this and the fact our safe was faulty but no one came to fix them. The pool areas are lovely, as are the gardens around the property however walking around the paths there seemed to be a lot of loose paving. Walking back to our building after goung out in the evenings was a bit of an assault course through the sprinkler systems, these come on surprisingly early - luckily we found it quite amusing trying to dodge them and they are obviously what is keeping the gardens looking nice so we didn't mind too much! This hotel has obviously put a lot of effort into the public areas such as the reception area, the bar/restaurant and pools it's just a shame that the same effort has not gone into the outside buildings, the stairwells and walkways to the rooms look old and tired and don't fit in with the style of the hotel at all. The staff we encountered were all very pleasant as usual and we made use of the Expedia desk were the staff are very helpful. There seems to be roadwork going on outside the hotel at the moment, not sure how long it will be going on, but it means the I ride North does not stop outside the hotel at the moment, however the next stop is only a short walk away. We normally love coming to this hotel however we feel there are improvements to be done and so were left a little disappointed with our stay. Read less
