The lodge rooms are 2 bedroom with a spacious combined lounge / kitchen / study area, shared bathrooms. Rooms were clean and comfortable and kitchen facilities to enable you to cook and be at 'home' The pool has some shaded area around it, the temperature was comfortable. There is also a bbq area to utilise. The owner, Bill, was engaging, accommodating and flexible with bookings (having regard to COVID lockdowns) Location is a pleasant walk to the river, a short drive to nearby shops.

Clean and fully self-contained with washing machine, dryer and even own washing line right outside the laundry. Modern bathroom and shower. Lots of storage space, extra shelves in the living room and bedroom, and a desk in a corner of the living area, were bonuses. Rather well-stocked kitchen. Supermarket and shops close by, and nice location by the river. My family used the pool and tennis courts with racquets to borrow. Our unit was right in front of the heated pool and spa, and pool towels were conveniently provided in the unit’s bathroom. In spring we did not need to use the heater/ air conditioner but a bonus is that both bedrooms were equipped with air conditioners. Plenty of beds in the kids’ bedroom. We booked the two-bedroom apartment for 4 adults, the kitchen was a little on the small end in terms of space for two adults to cook at the same time. The family apartments looked like they had more spacious kitchens and come with own private courtyard.

Thank you for staying with us and providing a review. We aim to provide everything guests should need to make their stay enjoyable. But we are always willing to listen to suggestions which may help improve our apartments even more. We are so glad you were able to enjoy the apartments and facilities we provide. All the kitchens are well equipped, and while none are small, some are less spacious (as you felt) due to their design. We hope to choose to come and stay with us again in the future.
