Was happy with the room cleanliness, the bathrooms was pleased with also, my only little gripe was the parking was limited, I had a trailer with work and found it difficult when parking, one of my neighbours from the other cabins decided to move my trailer through the night, very close to my car. So long story short only small minute issue was the limited parking

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review us. Servicing rooms are done on the 3rd day for guest stay any longer than 2 days. Guests requiring anything outside of these time of the serviced time should contact reception as we are more than willing to provide extra services when needed. I hope we get the opportunity on your next visit.

Our room air conditioners were full of mould and filters full of dust. Water out of kitchen sink full of black specs of something that has apparantly been an issue for a long time so why continue to book people into those rooms until the issue is fixed. Kettle was mouldy also. Tap in bathroom sink constantly dripping.

After check-in I was contacted to swap from the Superior Cabin which I booked and we had settled in to for a motel room because someone else needed a cabin. I was offered 2 nights' meals for both of us in the restaurant as compensation for agreeing to swap. On the first night we waited over an hour for ordinary meals, so opted not to dine there on the second night. When I enquired as to whether the difference could be credited I was told it might not be possible since I booked and paid online. I hope something can be done on Tuesday when everything is open again. I regret agreeing to swap.
