Disliked: Staff & service
I thought the staff were poor in their training and in how they interact with customers. Thecstaff in bar and restaurants were particularly poor. Also we have fire alarm at 2am and staff had little udea or training on how to deal with it and check off guests.

We were welcomed by really friendly staff, one gave my 4 year old son a lanyard with animal badges on and he was over the moon. We loved the tortoises in reception and the swimming facility was good and numbers were just right. Loved the view over to the zebras when coming out of the lift. Restaurant experiecne wasn't good. Food was very poor and pricey, staff were not particularly friendly or helpful (probably just busy rather than rude). Breakfast was chaoitic and very difficult to manage if only one adult in the party with small children as all self service and we weren't offered a table near to the buffet so had to bring son with me, couldn't carry evwerything then kept having to leave him at the table alone to get a drink, and hot food. Not great for a family hotel.

Good location. You had to prebook for everything including food for evening meal and breakfast. We ended up with really unsuitable times as this was not told to us until check in. Also the pool was prebook only and there was no space left at any suitable times. The staff joked they had already booked some people in for December.
