Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Last summer I took my grandson and friend to coasteering. Grandson was disappointed in not too many jumping off cliffs - that was not ever it was about. I also took my grandaughter to climbing on outdoor rocks - she loved it. This half term I took both for indoor climbing experience. Both described it as brilliant and want to go again. All visits were well organised and safety was paramount. I would have no hesitation to taking them back again for whichever activity they fancy.

Did a climbing induction here on a quiet evening between Xmas and new year. Good standard of instruction and a friendly, capable instructor (Flynn), and good fun. Really enjoyed it.

Simmo was brilliant for the high ropes obstacle course that was booked for my eldest daughter’s birthday. My youngest was so scared at the beginning but once he helped her a couple of times her confidence grew so much and there was nothing stopping her.

We are really glad to hear that your daughters confidence grew on the high ropes session to a point she could tackle the 24 different challenges on the course. I will make sure Simmo sees your message. Many thanks

First time going to R&R and really enjoyed climbing and bouldering and caught the bug! Great with my 11 year old, Simmo was very encouraging and everyone was really friendly and helpful. Next time we'll be sampling the food!

We took our 11 year old grandson for an hour taster climbing session. He really enjoyed it and wants to return when he next visits. We were impressed with the instructor who gave clear instruction and was really encouraging.

We had a fabulous time - the archery was great fun and Flynn made sure our son enjoyed the experience and improved his aim! We also went bouldering which was very good - lots of different walls to try. The staff were excellent and very attentive.
