“Good morning out seeing creepy crawlies”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

We spent a very wet morning here and the kids loved it. The weather was pretty horrendous so it was a shame we couldn't use the outdoor play areas. Although had we been staying longer in Anglesey, we could have used our ticket to get in again, but alas we are now home again...

The animals were clean and obviously well cared for. The butterfly house is a bit hot, but not too uncomfortable (didn't have to keep checking on husband to see if he was on the verge of a pass out like I did at the Eden project last year!).

Food was very nice and staff were friendly and very helpful.

“Good for the money”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

There are so many of these kind of nature places to visit it takes a lot to stand out.
The price was ok but perhaps better tariffs for concessions and real little ones.
The selection of animals were better than most of the same size and I got to hold a beautiful python called Sabrina.
Meerkats were great - always a winner.
The butterfly house were far too hot though! As hot as a steam room so you kind of rush through and miss some amazing butterflies.
The reptiles and other creepy crawlies were off of the butterflies so you had no way of cooling down and generally rushed over half the available attractions. If the butterfly house were separate with lots of outdoor things around it, the whole experience would be 50% better.
A nice place but poorly designed.

thank you for taking your time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and are sorry that you feel that the butterfly house was too hot for you.The room needs to be at that temperature for the butterflies to survive as they are used to tropical climate. we hope youll visit us again soon

“Great staff”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This is a good stop off on the way to somewhere else. It is reasonable enough to get in and the staff are great. They know so much about their animals. I though it was a little small and enclosed. Outdoor areas were clean and tidy with a little playground for kids to run off some energy. Food is quite expensive. Their is also a shop, cafe and little nature walk. Take an hour or two to visit. Have fun.

“A reasonable day out”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Visited on an awful day so unfortunately the outdoor attractions were off limits , boy can it rain on this island. the kids had a good hour walking around and certainly enjoyed the butterfly house and the meercats . All the inhaitants looked well cared for and the staff were attentive , especially the reception girl. Just think a little investement would improve the user experience immensly
