We enjoyed our week at Searles, great place.
We liked our stay in the Bronze Lodge, it was very spacious, had everything you needed. The kitchen was well equipped and the place was very clean and tidy. Definitely recommend staying in one of these.
Place was generally clean and well laid out.
Smokey Joes food was really lovely, especially as it is not cheap in there. Was expecting it to be mediocre but was pleasantly surprised.
Reception staff and security was always friendly and helpful.
We had to make our own beds which took a while as you are given a whole pile of white sheets which took a long time to sort out, especially difficult with the kids smaller beds, then the normal sized single beds. I found the sheets just about fitted but gave up on the double bed as I took a spare sheet.
Swimming area is quite dated and looked quite scummy. The big swimming pool area and lockers/changing area need a revamp badly as I feel it let the site down.
The entertainment was ok, the team work really really hard but vocally they are not the best. Although the kids loved the entertainment. Very difficult to get a table at peak times.
I will definitely like to return again this year!
