Great hotel and within walking distance to Disney, restaurants and other shops. Hotel facilities are a little old and need revamp. Be careful of the cabinet drawers as one missed my toe when it collapsed as I opened it. Rooms with the Disney view were great as we enjoyed fireworks from the comfort of the room as the kids were...

Could not fault and would...

Chosen as it is walking distance to Disneyland, free wifi and free parking. Also fabulous swimming pool and water play area for the kids. Hotel itself was very clean and rooms were spacious. Booked a standard room which had 2 big beds and a table with chairs and plenty of storage. Stayed for a week and would definately stay again....

We stayed here for 2 nights in December for a visit to Disneyland. On arrival, we had a warm welcome from the man on reception. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The bathroom had 2 basins which was useful as we are a family of four. We did not use any of the hotel facilities such as the...

Our relatives were in Building 3 which was cleaner than Building 1. Our room had mini M&Ms scattered on the carpet and candy canes crushed in the closet. It looked like...
