Lovely stay with friendly staff. The one room apartment is very roomy and although we didn't swim the pool is right outside the apartment, very handy and a spa and sauna also. The rooms were clean with excellent facilities.

Two bedroom cove room was more suited to the Hobbits. Ceiling so low you could hear every foot step from above. Accommodation stated dining area which was FALSE. Fridge which hadn't been cleaned. Sink and small microwave. From reading the description of this place was totally misleading. Small kitchenette but definitely no dining area. Garage supplied but problem was once...

It is always disappointing when guests find any of our facilities not to their liking; and we would endeavour to offer alternatives if concerns are raised with us at the time. The Cove (aptly named) due to its low stud height - and specified as such on our website, is often booked by repeat guests for its quirkiness. When our...

Overall very pleasant, with a very nice barbecue area for those wishing to cook up a social barbie. Our bed was a bit on the tired side, and the self-serve Continental breakfast was a bit 1970's. Although the plastic-packaged cornflakes had a use-by date of November 2016, the date appears to have been overly-optimistic as they were stale. Staff lovely,...
