The food wasn't great at the restaurant - undercooked - when we sent it back it came charred. Lunches were also very average. Everything needs attention - gardens a bit scruffy, litter in places, walls that need to be pressure hosed, loose paving and bricks in places, seating in restaurant needs to be re-done - material looks worn out. All...

I would recommend hiking boots for your guide. The light fittings over the bed was too low. I knocked my head whilst sitting up, I enjoyed the activities. I felt that some activities closed off to early durung the week. The keys should be made available at reception for those who still want activities. Regards

I think the venue is fine for going with friends/family and doing self-catering but it is not fine for companies and conferencing. The conference room was a big room but the set up was so squashed. The service is terrible, the food is terrible. I was told that l could not choose the food, that it depended on the chef...

I found the chalet we stayed in a bit cramped the layout could have been better designed. Some of the lights were not working and calling reception didn't lead to that being fixed. It may be a better place to stay when it is not too busy (we were there during Easter). The staff at the children's play area were...

The pizza hut staff were accommodating and friendly. The breakfast staff were really not efficient at all, the eggs were undercooked, the egg white was runny and the breakfast took very long despite the coffee shop being empty when we ordered. Some staff seemed to struggle to understand English, especially the waitress at breakfast. The resort is looking run down...

On arrival you get greeted by a very enthusiastic security guard which is lovely. The check in process is very quick and pleasant. The chalets are very well equipped and up to date. However every toilet as well as the kitchen tap leaked. We couldn't wait to go for the dinner as the pictures we have seen on social media...

Alphine Heath is a perfect place to relax. Lots of activities for the kids. I enjoyed the night party at the Tavern. The Fresh air and open spaces really brings a sense of calmness. Good Service and hospitality all round.

Disappointing follow up from hotel which left my 3 years old daughter with scars. Due to cleaning products left outside our room unsupervised and products was not even closed so that the accident could have been avoided all together.
