Great stay very friendly staff. Very busy accommodation at times but great activities for children. Only thing I found as a downfall in the hotel part of it there is no sink to wash up other than the bathroom sink which is to small really to wash up properly.

The new water park is fantastic & having plenty of pools is a great idea. We found the cabin to be clean and all user friendly.

10/10 Exceptional

Best experience and service I’ve ever had.
We arrived after hours and were very impressed that our cabin had the lights and air conditioning on to make our arrival very comfortable. We were also towing a trailer which fitted in our parking bay perfectly. We were also offered an extra caravan site if we couldn’t fit both in the units parking bay. Very friendly staff.
