I've stayed at 5 of these - Leeds, Wirral, Nottingham, Chester and Newcastle, and they are very similar in what they offer. Pros: Pools/Sauna etc. are generally good (but beware you MUST book ahead currently). Nice enough grounds, clean enough rooms, breakfast OK without being anything exceptional (it was better when they did a buffet, some currently serving it to order). All of the staff have always been very friendly. Cons: There is no air conditioning and the rooms get very hot, and sometimes you are near the units for the pool, so hot AND noisy. They are out of town - usually near a bus stop though, but tend to be near a retail park or light industrial/office. Depends which location to what is nearby. The food in the restaurant is edible but not brilliant - burgers (£15 ish), wraps (£9) and a small selection of other things like fish and chips, plus as another poster wrote - some weird clean eating things. £40 is enough for meal for 2 though - and again, you must book in advance. Whereas I don't think it is offer of the century - £35 for a hotel room per night where there is a pool is not bad and if you need to stay somewhere because you have things on in the area, you could do a lot worse.
Tried to book Bournemouth. Seems every date I want is booked up, and I tried several 😏
From the photo it looks like the weird boxes scene from interstellar (confused)
It’ll make a lovely ‘take the mistress away’ weekend. Oops I meant ‘the missus’ ;)
It's actually north of Headingley in Weetwood, Weetwood Hall has a cosy bar in a stone courtyard about 5 minutes walk north and then there is the triple attraction of the three horseshoes, New Inn and Woodies about 5 minutes the other way. If you want to eat out try Salvos but book ahead as it gets busy.
I always book with haven, extremely clean, entertainment ok for little ones. No quibble refund if booked by a certain date
Why, when UK tourism does not give a hoot about anyone? A holiday in Cornwall cost 3 times the amount of Portugal and has only been for the middle classes for ages. The rest of the UK is too dear, train fares are insane compared to flights. After each government announcement was made, hotels etc hiked their prices up. The 4 day holiday I wanted to book increased by £150. I was not booking before we knew, as some people never got a refund. Haven refused to refund me when covid broke out.
I have done it. The reviews made me dread booking but it was not that bad and every holiday is what you make of it. I have read the horror stories and it always sounds like people got a chalet which had not been cleaned. My chalet was basic but clean, the other guests were nice and the grounds were ok. I did not use the cheesy entertainment as there were lots of things to do nearby. I just used it like a very cheap hotel room, it was £59 for 4 nights. I have stayed in worse places in Greece. I have not been during the busy school holidays which are probably hellish.
This needs to be expired as price gone up to £119 now.
Thank you but heard enough horror stories

Agreed. Did it about 5 years ago and definitely nowhere near worth the money. £20 would be fair.
You get free entry into Eden, just unclip when the time is right (y)
Did this last year, tbh I don't think I would recommend it. If you're in the area, or gone Eden Project, then maybe consider it, there are other activities there as well. But this was pretty tame.
Came to Eden Project later on during the day in 2019 so went for this instead - kind of fun actually. Certainly inspired me to allocate more time and explore the Eden itself. Purchased tickets using Red Letter Days in 2020 and just plain unlucky to receive no refund/ no communication.. Had a few things booked with them pre covid and didn't have any issues until now.
True pal. Absolutely not taking into account the price.
For £35? Doubt it.
I wouldn't recommend these. I would recommend some decent wireless ones.
XD more than likely, she passed away a few weeks ago so we'll never know. I just randomly seen the trimmer in the garage the other day when I was sorting it out and said I'd fix the wire, easy enough job just two wires
Has anyone managed to make a booking for £55 in July 2022?
Terrible weather is always a distinct possibility for the UK and you can't blame there for that. Just book the day before you want to go and can see that the weather will be good, you can always find a good last minute deal somewhere.
I can't think of anything worse, I struggle when it gets above 75 degrees in the UK.
Not to mention travel restriction.
Or 3 hours if you try to do it in rush hour on a Thursday evening (lol) Yes, my watch recorded 51 degrees when I was there last and I was so grateful to get out of my suit at the end of the day. Bit that I didn’t get used to was the heat and humidity in the evening. Kinda like someone breathing in your face all the time.
Expect to be in doors in hotel restaurant or in a mall that time of year...
Only about 90 mins drive to Dubai..and you can get a taxi . Recommend brunch in the Emirates Palace.
Knew I should have bought this at £85 last year. Grrr.
I apologise, you're quite right!
Now I am confused. I thought it was the other way around #confused
For the benefit of other members, LP is Low Pressure and runs from disposable 250g or 500g gas cartridges whereas HP is High Pressure and will require a Calor cylinder or similar with regulator and hose. I was previously a trade account holder with Cadac, fantastic product range and personally own a Safari Chef which is superb!!
I've used other clarifier's after using a shock treatment on the pool it can leave the water milky or cloudy the clarifier or sparkle makes the water clear again it's good stuff, £4.13 a lt is a great price its normally about £10 everywhere else.
It's good takes all the particles that the filter misses
It’s a bit of a mix. For Ed’s Diner you get 1 free kids meal per full adult. However Alton Towers gives a general discount. Normal tickets cost £117 for 3 people But with DOWTK it costs £105.
Does it have max amount of children?
In Aberdeen you have 4 deals 20% of Jump in up to 40% off tickets for Vue 20% off curious walks BOGOF Huntfun treasure hunts. The fact you cannot see what deals are in your area till you sign up to it is poor and no way would I have paid for what is on offer.
Thanks for the input. Might be worth while for some folks. It’s free as long as you can set a calendar reminder in your phone to cancel.
Cold cold cold for this. Hardly any good deals u cant get anywhere else and not worth the 19.99 in 6 months time which I doubt anyone would actually pay for this very limited service. Just seems like a scam to get u to sign up forget about it and get stung with 19.99 deducted from your bank account in 6 months time. Heavily promoted aswel when it's really not very good
I haven't got an Apple pencil to test mine with. Everything else works flawlessly. I may have to go into an apple store to get this checked out before the warranty runs out. I was a bit suspicious that a grade B turned up in mint condition. Cheers for the heads up.
Further update. I realised that my iPad had some screen issue, one portion of screen was not detecting Apple Pencil touch though it was detecting mouse clicks in the same area. Opened an Apple case, took it to Apple store today, they agreed screen is faulty, gave me a new replacement iPad :)
Download a program on PC called iMazing. It will give you in depth information on the health status of the iPad or any other IOS product you bought. It shows my battery has only had 12 charging cycles. It`s practically brand new! Absolute bargain at £560 for a 4th gen iPad Pro 12.9" 256gb in mint condition, couldn't be happier (y)
Code Not Working for me... I tried Ordering iPad Pro 11" . Grade B. But No discount..
Some of the stouts they've done have been decent, then theres the ones like u say, taste of chemically added artificial flavourings :( shame
Good luck on receiving your 5 Strawberry and Olive sours and 4 Chocolate Orange stouts ;)
I feel your just on here for an argument due to not having a life.
It has proper **** about initially but since theyve aded the chat bot much easier
Oh wow spokesperson for the brand? No need to get up tight I'm entitled to an opinion, I wasn't keen on the beer they sent. Much prefer other brands so ermmm yea back in your box and thanks for your input (y) also not your mate go find some other mates.
