After a week at Sherwood Hideaway in a contemporary VIP lodge we are well rested. A beautiful location with a well finished furnishings. Very helpful staff and very clean. Some minor drawbacks the fridge is a little small but with shopping just over a mile away not the end of the world. There were a few repairs needed with the main one for us being the slats on the blinds not closing properly leaving the light streaming in at silly o'clock There are no power sockets in the second double and the wifi was uber slow but that was only an issue for our teenage daughter as we liked being cut off. I would've liked to have had the balcony/hot tub area with more privacy as it is overlooked by the next lodge. They have planted trees to solve this but it may be sometime before they are effective. None of this detracted from our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
