We stayed at Bluestone last week during half term and it felt like a complete waste of money.
The lodge itself was quite good but the beds were so hard we all had bad backs and we ran out of hot water every day after 1 shower.
The worst aspect was the catering. We did not manage one single meal without an issue. Items being forgotten and coming at different times. We had lunch at the Tafarn on the Tuesday and after several times of asking got cold food after an hour and a half!
The shop has nothing to cook in the lodge so take plenty of your own food.
The take away was dire - £10.95 for a chicken kebab that was literally 5 tiny slices of chicken breast - the worst value by far of our whole stay.
Careg Las is far from fine dining - laughable is all I can say!
There is little to do indoors if the weather is bad. Nothing for older children or adults either. No gym, badminton courts etc etc.
Pool is tiny. The park is more geared for smaller children but definitely not for teenagers.
No comparison with Center Parcs.
