Having read the reviews after booking the holiday I was incredibly worried about what we might be walking in to.
We booked a bronze villa as they're pet friendly, there were five of us and two dogs. The down side to getting there was it took us hours from the midlands, I recommend paying for early check in and leaving really early if you have to travel on the m5!!
We took cleaning products just in case and had the resolve that if it needed cleaning we would send the kids for a walk and spend half hour on making it clean, to my great delight this wasn't needed. To say it was a pet friendly accommodation there wasn't any evidence of previous pets having stayed.
The lounge area had a big enough table to seat 6 and probably more of chairs were available, there was a bench outside and a BBQ plate for disposables. Upstairs was carpeted and the curtains looked fairly new and modern. We had no dirt on mattresses like other reviews have mentioned but I will say they were very hard but it's not going to be to everyone preference.
Also the kitchen and bathroom we're clean, not the most modern but the bathroom had no mildrew on the shower curtain and the kitchen and cupboards were to a good clean standard.
Sorry for the lengthy review but I think some have been unfair and made me dread a holiday that was really very good for the money we paid.
We didn't use the entertainment on sight as the weather was gorgeous we were out most the time at the gorgeous beach and the near by town Ilfracombe. The kids used the surf simulator and loved every minute, this was a treat and budgeted for prior to arriving. It's £20 per go but they do deals with other activities so worth a read. The food was fast food what you would expect for grab and go. The old mill pub was very popular so arrive early and the prices were maybe a few pound higher than what we'd pay at home but was good quality, hot and arrived in the estimated time.
We will certainly be back :)
