The carpets in the chalet were dirty, the duvets had stains, the pillows had hair on them,there were dead ants all over the bed and the shower was covered in mold. There are no facilities on... More

What a great relaxing and awesome weekend away, just what we needed. Sue and her mom were great hosts. Breakfast was perfect. The setting was good. We will be going there again. The best is that it was so close to home.

After booking my accommodation in December last year, I was really excited about getting away to the "tranquil" Treehouse River Lodge. Upon arrival, my boyfriend and I were shown to Chalet 3 and allowed some time to settle in. Whilst unpacking, I noticed a distinct smell of cat urine along one side of the bed and in the bathroom -... More

We booked a two night stay for our family and our children's friends, and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Sue and Allys immediately made us feel at home, and part of the family. The cabins are cosy and well equipped, and provided the perfect place to unwind with our children and their friends. Great value for money and wonderful... More
