We were allocated a room close to amenities because my wife had hurt her ankle and was using a walking stick, the receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was a bungalow that was well furnished and quite sizeable, all the bungalows are surrounded by gardens. The site is user friendly for disabled, there being ramps to all elevations.... More

I'll keep this short but after reading the reviews I kept an open mind about staying here as you always get people that pick up on petty things. I can't find one fault, I absolutely loved this hotel, the bungalows were massive and spaced out well so your patio area isn't at all overlooked, it was cleaned everyday. On arrival... More

Had our toddler with us and struggled with both food for her and entertainment - play park very tired and more suitable for primary children. The pool was freezing and couldn't keep the wee one in and was surprised it wasn't heated in April. Never... More
