This is a typical old style British beach resort attraction. Great to just wander round went in early spring and assume it would be better under bright sunshine.

An excellent concert with a better than average support singer. James J.Jones. Auditorium was great for the concert, great sounds etc. The bar staff and service was dreadful. The bar looked tired and much in need of restoration. Shame as such a good place for concerts x xc

Went to winter Wonderland Xmas event , food and entertainment not up to dec 15 quality which was very good. Made complaint on the night about table decorations being removed. Staff were unprofessional in their answer. Only just received answer to my email complaint from Dec this week, no apology received. Not happy with whole experience.

Been here on NYE for many years the management do listen to feedback as venue has improved best NYE event for families it's safe friendly & lively. For acts it has the up close and personal experience so lacking in venues like the 02.

Attended a Christmas party here and every part of the evening was, without exception, fantastic. The food was delicious and the entertainment perfect for the occasion. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful.
