Hi Shona,

I'm so sorry to hear that you started your holiday with some cleanliness issues, I do hope you were able to raise this with a member of the team, they would have welcomed the opportunity to try and put this right for you. I do hope despite these issues that you did have an enjoyable holiday overall.

There were alot of negatives mainly pertaining to cleanliness and general attention to detail. The staff were friendly and the lodge was very spacious. The kids loved the pool and park. I would visit again but i will inspect my accommodation first before accepting it due to broken furniture. Perfect location as a base with basic facilities on a rainy day.
