Great hotel for families

Spent 2 nights in the Newpark with my mum and 2 daughters. From the moment we walked into reception, everything was brilliant, from the warm welcome from reception, the fabulous food and the overall facilities in place and in particular for the kids. There were weddings and other parties on both days we were there but everything was so well organised it’s didn't feel busy or overcrowded. It was such an enjoyable stay, we have booked again to return in August and we can’t wait.
