We were pleasantly surprised at the impeccable standard of COVID cleaning and my disinfectant wipes were not necessary, it was super clean. The bedding was top quality the mattress could have been better. The site was a little tired but the staff were very friendly. We felt negative comments left on line by visitors the weekend before we arrived were unnecessary, what part of pandemic and rules put in place to protect all did they not understand.
