Superb 9.0 From 489 reviews

Poor 2.0
Avoid, avoid, avoid
We were stunned - the place is going through a major refit - no water in the rooms between 10am and 5pm and don't get me started on the drilling and banging that went on, you guessed between 10am and 5pm! We were visiting from the UK - our body clocks were a bit out of kilter and a wash on arriving in our room would have been nice as would a nap in the afternoon. Don't waste your money.
Kim, gb5 night trip
Good 6.0
Make sure tour not near the renovation
Good, but there was construction and getting to lobby was a pain. They should have given us a better deal for our rooms to compensate for the inconvenience and noise. In addition, they said water might turn off in shower on Wednesday and Thursday after 9am. Well nothing like it happening to me on Friday. Conditioner still in hair. Kinda ruins the experience, being that it was a fairly expensive stay. The boat to and from Universal is great. Fast, smooth and pretty ride.

Room not ready til late
It would be good to be given an approximate time of the room being ready. We arrived early at 11.30am and were prepared to wait but we were left hanging around the hotel waiting for a text, which we finally received at 5.15pm, far later than we imagined it would be. Everything else great though, a lovely place to stay.
Samantha, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Famil stay
Booked the night the staff were ok but not that helpful. Expensive for what you get. Ok if you are going to the parks but I have stayed in some expensive hotels which were a lot better and staff made you feel special. If I was comparing to Disney hotels, the treatment was better there. Pool was nice. But for the price I paid I would expect a suite as I ended up upgrading
Gareth, gb1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great use of Tesco Clubcard vouchers, great location of hotel for Universal theme parks and the water taxi was a lovely bonus. Room key was also an express pass for all the rides.

A beautiful setting!
Only there for one night, next time would atay for 2. A gorgeous setting with opera playing on the Tuesday evening. Hige bed which was super comfy aftrr the day in the park. This hotel also provide Express Passes which we found invaluable for swiftly getting on rides. All in all a fantastic stay.

Sally, au8 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The property is amazing and the proximity to the parks can’t be beat. However, the bathroom in our room could stand some updates. For the amount of money you are spending for the room, the shower is very small and the bathroom wasn’t as clean as it could have been.
