We had to keep our door closed as all the local kids hang out & ride there skate boards & scooters in the carpark. If you want wi fi be... More

the internal condition of our room was excellent. The external condition of the building was poor - lots of stains, mould and weeds growing on patios. The position of the building is excellent. The staff very helpful.

There was a damp smell in the living room area which at times was really bad. We were visiting family so luckily we weren't in the room much. Would stay... More

I found our room dated and finding a large cockaroch in the bathroom wasn't nice I didn't think the staff were that friendly at all and the cleaning man who came to remove the roach seemed to expect me to thank him for removing the roach when it shouldn't have been there to begin with

Room smelled of fresh paint, shower head was broken, Outdoor spa was closed for repairs and the rooms are very small for a family. Diggers club next door is average at best. Would not stay there again. Very overpriced stay especially in winter

Not enough toiletries. Nice and quiet. Would be better in Summer. Would not eat at the diggers Club again-very ordinary. Nice friendly little town. Water view is lovely. Not having been there before staff on the desk had to guide us to the entrance.

Lovely room and location. Super friendly staff. Live music from the Diggers club was loud in our room but did stop around midnight - not too good for an early night. Minimal toiletries and linen provided.
