        Friendly staff, very clean & quiet.

        Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean rooms & very friendly staff. Very nice outdoors areas just outside our room, for sitting out in the sun. They could do with better heating during the winter months. There was only a little fan heater, but everything else was great...

        It would have been a good stay if we had not found two cockroach in the cabin. It was really disgusting. The manager was friendly allowing us to leave the room later than 10.00.
