Just back from our timeshare week at Slaley. We have owned our villa for around 15 years (number 21). Love it. Yes its not cheap with high maint fees and then the ever rising cost of electricity at the end of the stay, but it is lovely with a fab view too.
Our villa was refurbished last year. Its fine but when the tv was replaced the shelving unit was taken away in the lounge and this now make the lounge appear empty. The table from outside the spa tub/Sauna bathroom has now been moved to the lounge - but really it just does not work. The master bedroom has also changed - the superking bed has shrunk to a double! Pictures have also been replaced which to us seems a complete waste of money - there was nothing wrong with the old ones.
As time goes on though the provision for the owners appears to be getting less. The weekly activity program is poor - this time there was only Golf - beat the Pro (but he was too busy to play!) & quiz on Thursday where teams of any numbers were allowed - so it was rather unfair when 6 v 2!!
No provision for beginners golf, no welcome meeting, no way to meet other owners & arrange golf - & no provision for this in pro shop. My husband had to go out on the coarse alone!
Overall a great stay, but felt very isolated this year but perhaps that was also to do with the weather which was not the best.
Our electric bill this year was just over £60 for 2 of us being very careful and turning off panel heaters in unused bedrooms etc. DeVere is the only company we have stayed at where electric is payable.
