Spent a few days here to do a kayaking course. The course itself was great. I learned a lot and the instructor was very good. The other aspects of the accommodation are OK; rooms are clean and tidy and the bathrooms were of reasonable quality. The bar in the lodge is comfy and has a pool table. There is a pool and a sauna, but they're better used in conjunction with the activity courses; they're not the luxurious spa-like aspects of a hotel 'sports center'; they're tools used in the course work.
Food included in the courses is quite good and very filling. I probably wouldn't want to stay here as standalone accommodation - I prefer more indulgent accommodation on holiday - but as a residential facility for the activity courses, it's brilliant!
