I understand that this place is quite cheap but it's very shabby and in need of renovation. The private pool was dirty and staff were very unfriendly too.

It's been several years since our last visit. The pool is lovely and clean and the water is a good temperature. Other facilities are basic but clean. Great small pool for the under 5s as well.

Simple. Affordable. Old school, but awesome atmosphere. Our children love it and we are happy to take them when we are close by. Thanks :-)
