Latest Reviews
Staff in all areas extremely efficient, helpful and friendly.
Accommodation very clean.
Dining room was over crowded on our first night, tables were on top of one another but other 2 nights were much better.
Squash courts definitely need some attention.
A suggestion that maybe there could be more information provided about the hikes in the area.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and recommend it to others.
