A friendly, family run hotel. We visited with two teenage children who enjoyed the experience. We stayed in the main lodge, a family room. I wasn't impressed, a small, dirty, bad quality room with a tiny, smelly bathroom. We had to share beds because the hotel failed to take in our request. The food was average, but well served with a good breakfast. The atmosphere in the hotel was great, with the friendly hotel dogs and gorgeous minituare horses wandering around the site wanting to be stroked. You could go for a ride at the stables or just go to see the horses. There was a tiny pool too in the middle of the site which wasn't the best location... There wasn't really anywhere to sit on the site either. Service and friendlyness was outstanding though! We did do a White water rafting activity while we were there, which was fabulous. It was a friendly, safe excursion with a company that comes to the hotel. A really good, fun, safe experience. You felt very safe with the instructors especially as one of the children felt quite unsure but as she started she loved it. A good level for beginners, and people of any age. Overall- it was a nice experience with a few faults, the room was the main issue. I recommend it if you like a bit of 'rough and ready!' Enjoy!
