    “ok but not disappointing”

    Poor facilities for children. Games room and equipment poor standard. Bar had one real ale (from Yorkshire) so no choice, and no Cumbrian ale!
    Kids not well catered for at breakfast with lack of cereal choice.
    We've stayed in much better places for much less!
