Though the weather was inclement (rainy and cold) the Young staff were very warm and friendly and I especially loved the food in the Restaurant (as usual) I have never had a bad meal there yet - first class Family oriented atmosphere and very friendly to little children and this is to be commended.

Thank you for your review, I am unable to identify which room you stayed in, all our heat pumps have been recently serviced so perhaps the unit was on the wrong setting? I hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Kind regards Carrie Accommodation Manager Orford Blue Waters

The room was newly renovated and tasteful. However, the hallway entrance was very old and shabby. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional.
