We booked a lodge for my family (2 adults and 2 children ages 14 and 15). The location was quiet and a quick walk to town. It was immaculate and had everything we needed including milk for our tea and soap for washing our clothing. We called reception with several requests and the service was excellent. Our lodge had a...

Great place for families and all the staff are lovely. Nice pool, a children's play area in the restaurant which is a great idea. There is an outdoor play area too. They have kids clubs during the holidays so parents can relax while the Kids make friends and have fun. We'll go again!

Good breakfast, good swimming pool, nice small bar and easy way to access town by foot. We spent very nice weekend there. The only, small, downsides were that the double bed was a little bit small and TV reception was bad quality, but apart from that everything was perfect.
