Positive Reviews

Great for families.

The Park Hotel and surrounding area has much to offer families; Rock Park has acres of lawned areas for children to run around, visit the children's playground or drive or take the bus to one of the many spectacular beaches nearby. The Park offers inter-c

Friendly staff.

Many reviewers suggest that, while the hotel has many great features, it is the staff that truly make it what it is. From the Reception to the Restaurant staff, Housekeeping and Managers; all are friendly and will go out of their way to help.

Clean and well-thought-out.

Rooms are serviced daily and kept meticulously clean. Guests also like that the bathrooms, in particular, are very well thought-out, with plenty of space beside the sinks for toiletries.

Negative Reviews

Beds. You'll either love them or hate them.

As in many hotels, the beds are a source of contention. Some guests love them while others have described them as being too soft. It all comes down to personal taste.

Room sizes vary.

Previous guests recommend discussing room options with the staff at the hotel before you book. Some of the double rooms are, perhaps, a little on the small side for two guests, but would be ideal for a single traveller. Other rooms are much more spacious.

No air conditioning in rooms.

Air conditioning is present in the common areas of the hotel but there is currently none in guest rooms. This, obviously, won't be a problem all year-round but worth taking into consideration if your stay is during the Summer months.
