I stayed in the Oulton Penthouse with my parents in September. The accommodation was very well presented and located in a great place on site... I would probably say that this is the best unit on site for its views! The apartment was on the first floor of a building right on the edge of the marina, there was one... More

My partner and I stayed in Spa Lodge 3 known as Chedgrave. Sleeps 6, but only 2 of us so we were spoilt for space and had choice of shower room en-suite, or bathroom (which had shower over bath). Everywhere very clean and well appointed with lots of storage in all bedrooms. Main bedroom also has small storage room with... More

We booked the night before - because the weather was scheduled to be good, and it was! Glorious day. On arrival you are given a clip board and document ( checklist) for health and safety / training. Only minor comment would be that a slightly grumpy man greeted us at the waterside along with others who were also holding clip... More

Thank you for your great review of our day cruisers - it's really appreciated. I don't know who the 'grumpy' man was at the waterside - but I will certainly feed that back to the team and hope that he will be suitably mortified. I'm glad that you enjoyed your day on the water, please come and visit us again... More

This hotel is lovely. Immaculately clean, well kept, beautifully decorated with clean, comfortable well equipped rooms. The bed was do comfortable, I am disabled with hip & back problems, so I don't ever sleep through the night, but I had the best nights sleep in this bed, that I've ever had in any hotel!

We had such a wonderful stay here over a long weekend in one of the escape pods. The setting was beautiful and the facilities second to none and meticulously clean. What really made the experience was the hospitality and friendliness of the staff (Especially Shawnice on reception and the pizza chef). The facilities on site were well above what we... More

Loved the lodge, the hot tub, the views and the site generally overall. Sadly the reception and bar staff are just unfriendly, verging on rude. Ask a question at reception and they treat you like an irritation were the bar staff just wanted to carry on a conversation with which I assume where locals who drink at the bar there.... More

So the lodge is basically a caravan with wooden slats around around it, that is the only way I can truly describe it. The hot tub was located on the side of the 'lodge' which I found peculiar, although I must say I had a lovely view of my car and an empty beer bottled which hadn't been cleared up!... More
