The staff are very friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is also a restaurant and bar where we had some good meals and... More

Well I read the reviews of people years back, and I must agree with the latest review of marianne the new owners and manager and Gary who works very hard to keep the place in ship shape order.

Rooms: Each unit has two rooms - one with a queen bed, one with bunk-bed, small tv, table, sink/fridge/microwave. Everything is very clean. In our 3 night stay, there was not one... More

On arrival, I was glad to have booked this self catering resort. I was happy with the location and the rooms were very clean. There is a lovely deck over looking the river which we loved. We spent as much time there as possible. We are not a fishing family, but I hear the fishing is great here too. The... More
