The accommodation and the staff exceeded our expectations! The breakfast was more than what was expected. The kids absolutely loved the train carriage and the spa was so warm! Very friendly and warm atmosphere. We will definitely be going back again asap

We stayed in one of the train carriages. Very comfortable and perfectly suited for purpose. The two girls (5 and 12) loved the London bus bunk beds. The grounds are excellent for walking around and enjoying the numerous animals in situ (alpacas, goats and a few chickens). Graham and Sue very friendly and helpful but discreet allowing you space to... More

Last night my family of six (including several children with Special Needs) spent a relaxing night at Maddison's in one of their very cute Train Carriages. The whole place was so clean, our hosts both friendly and helpful, and Sue has thought of all the little touches to truly help her guests enjoy their stay. The breakfast basket delivered to... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Great amenities including the huge indoor pool. Loved the big country breakfast and friendly staff. Will return for sure. Our dog enjoyed it too! Thank you for making us feel welcome.

Our family of 3 (2 adults and Miss12yrs) stayed overnight with an extended checkout. We fed the alpacas and cuddled a 4day old kid(baby goat). We swam in the pool and relaxed in the spa. It was a peaceful stay - just what we wanted. The cabin was well appointed with comfortable bed, choice of pillows; the kitchen had extras... More

Like most things, feelings are based on perceived value. There is nothing greatly wrong with Madison's but is though overpriced for quality and what you get. It can't be compared to a resort but as a "retreat", it probably suits family getaways. Unfortunately, the cabins are more set up for couples than family groups. The design is close to 80's... More

It is interesting that your review is so different to your review of us a year prior. We have decided to repaint the cabin that you stayed in – hopefully it won’t look as dated in the future. It was built in 1995, so definitely not “80s” design (with digital LCD TV, DVD player, electric cooktop, microwave, digital clock radio,... More

We wish we could say thank you to a wonderful stay at Madisons but unfortunately we can't. We as a family were attending a wedding nearby and the wedding party had booked the whole resort for the night. We were very surprised to find the accommodation was for our two daughters to share two horrible sofa beds in the lounge... More

Alpaca35, Owner at Madison's Mountain Retreat, responded to this review

As you stated in your review, the wedding party made the booking at our RETREAT (not a resort) – they chose to have the breakfasts supplied to the cabins, rather than in the Gazebo as suggested by us. They also selected that cabin for you – the one that we recommend for couples as the bedroom door has a glass... More
