“Damp, dark and needs a refurb”
Reviewed 1 November 2006

This place could be lovely if they'd upgrade their furniture, bedding and the so called restaurant. It is self service accomodation, but it felt like I was at a caravan park and there was a damp smell in the cabin. The cabins are lovely, structurally and the location is lovely, but the furnishing are outdated and the bedding should be fresher and nicer. It seemed old and damp.

  • Disliked — Damp and dark and decor was cheap and ugly
  • Stayed October 2006, travelled with family
