Great place to be so close to the sea. we were unable to use the twin bedroom as the windows had a gap and storm Erick took hold which meant our family could only come for the day not the weekend as planned.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, and for being such loyal visitors to Ruda!

We're glad that you loved Lundy Cottage - it is definitely a special accommodation.

We hope it won't be too long before we welcome you back on Park.

We had an amazing weekend. The only thing I would say is that being off peak nothing on site was open, it didn't bother us but it would have been nice to have been informed before we arrived. We stayed in Lundy house, it was gorgeous and plenty of space for everyone. It is a 2 min walk to the beach, with plenty of rock pools to search in.
Wouldn't hesitate to come back again, we all had a brilliant time.

Hi Kirsty,

Thank you for completing this review.

It's brilliant to hear you will return and stay with us again. We are pleased you enjoyed all aspects of your stay, we do close our facilities during the winter months to carry out end of season maintenance.

Nice relaxing break in a lovely apartment, some bits of the apartment a bit dated, sound proofing from adjoining apartments would be nice, pool area was closed the weekend we were there which was a shame, location was amazing even at this time of year.

We visited "out of season" and Ruda was closed. However, the apartment we stayed in was fantastic - so much better than any of us expected. Clean, well-maintained, well-furnished and had everything we needed. It was a shame that nothing on the entertainment site was open - this wasn't advised to us when we made the booking, but it didn't really matter that much. We would definitely go to the apartments again in January and would recommend it to any one who wants to blow away the Christmas cobwebs.
