We got a log cabin - I was expecting a cabin of some sort but not one made out of logs :p
It was good until I observed toilets behind us and realised the outside light would be shining in our window all night. Not sure what the deal with the white curtains is - not ideal for sleeping - better with darker curtains. We had to put a towel up to make the room a little darker - we had to open the window to do so, so we were a little cold overnight.
The hot pools were good - we managed to sneak into the mineral pool after the screaming kids had gone to bed - there was some school kids here - although the sign said all kids must be supervised I guess these ones didn't clarify. Unfortunately they did what kids do and were screaming for the whole hour we were there. I think if management had come over and given them an empty threat to quieten down it would have worked, the teachers had no effect on telling them off. It was about 8pm at night. The mineral pool was much hotter than the mini tubs which was nice.
The bathrooms were average. I forgot motor camps don't have cutlery so we had to bite our lemon open YAY!
TV had no remote but we managed to change the channels via the tv unit itself. The heater in the room did no good at heating.
I liked the cat, she was lovely - unsure if it's the resident camp cat or a cat that has adopted the place but she was cute. I want it....!
It's a bit further from town so better if you have a car as it will be a LONG walk.
