Management response:

Thank you, we're glad that you enjoyed the games room. It's fun to have somewhere to play on a rainy day or when you have some down time. It's got table tennis, pool, darts and table football. We've got quite a lot of out door games for sunny weather too - giant genga, connect 4, badminton, boules, skittles etc...
