We stayed here for two nights in one of the tree lodges which was lovely, clean, quiet and well appointed with a small balcony to sit out in the forest. However, the actual place caters for all types of accommodation and seemed very much geared up for the younger generation and the reception area and restaurant were noisy and very busy. The staff were always polite and helpful. It wasn't quite the luxury treat we thought we were going to get when we saw it on the internet. Breakfast was ok but the service was a little slow and things could have been cleaner. We had better value for money in other places.
