Left on 11/14/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 14, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
We had a long family weekend for an important birthday celebration. The service from Sandra Lane was efficient and friendly. The accommodation is first class for adults and young children. As we had five children, all under 5 years, full use was made of the excellent swimming facilities and the play barn with equipment ranging from play house suitable for toddlers to table tennis and table football for older children. We have already recommended to friends and will continue to do so.
