Beds are really comfortable, with extra blankets for the colder nights. Entertainment most nights in the bar, which has 3 big screens... More

Nice big clean apartment, could hear every word of next doors conversations, but they were out a lot and quiet, we stayed with our 3 year old. Staff were very friendly to us, the man who picked us up from the airport was lovely and went out of his way to help us. Bit annoying you have to hire everything... More

The good first, very welcoming, good for the price paid, rooms clean and grounds are kept to a very high standard. Food in the bar is very basic ok for a quick snack, rooms are basic and the beds are terrible. But overall it is a very relaxing and easy going environment to holiday in

This was our first time here, we booked it last minute when the holiday company we booked through went into admin. I actually wish we'd seen this place first.
