Stayed for 2 nights as a party of 6 in one if the woodland lodges. These were described as luxury, I think thats stretching things a touch.
We managed to get into our lodge at lunchtime rather than the usual 5pm, which I think is ridiculously late. Lodges bright and very spacious; ours had a great view onto the well stocked childrens park. There is a double ensuite room upstairs with a seating mezzanine area, a double and twin downstairs, both ensuite also. Bathrooms a bit dirty and tired, could do with redoing grout etc and shower didnt drain way all the time I was in the shower.
Living area was great, 2 sofas and a chair round log fire and tv; no DVD player or iPod dock. Dining table and chairs. Kitchen tiny, basically a corner; there is a fridge and dishwasher but a lack of crockery. You couldn't cook a meal here as only a microwave and 2 electric rings.
It was very quiet when we visited. We used the pool and there was only 1 other family in. The main building where the shops are was closed on the Monday which was very poor.
Check in and out was slow, the receptionist each time was casually chatting to a colleague on the phone whilst I stood and waited. We picked up a childrens entertainment programme and went to find the Saturday night disco, the reception team had no idea where it was, we gave up after they made repeated phonecalls but still had no idea about itate at Giovannis Italian restaurant, pretty basic food and ecoemsuve fir the standard.
Would I go again? Possibly, although it's more expensive than visiting centre parcs, where the accommodation is much better and the facilities are more extensive, especially for children.
