“Don't go there”
Reviewed November 9, 2008

My wife and kids and I stayed at the unit across the road from the caravan park... which they called the Pent house. It was the unit on the top storey and it was terrible. When we arrived and got our key a staff member walked across the road to show us where the unit was, with our bath towels underneath her arm pit. When we got in, she wouldn't leave us alone and kept talking about how wonderful her accomodation was. The unit looked nothing like the pictures advertised on the internet. Everything was moved around and was different to the pictures. The unit was run down and in serious need of maintenance. The floors were sticky and slippery and we coud not walk bearfoot because it was so disgusting. The unit stunk of bleach and we were extrememly disappointed and the pictures tell the rest of the story. I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone as I have stayed in better accommodation in a third world country. These people must be dreaming if they think this is a 'pent house' more like a pet house that you wouldn't want your dog to stay at.
