Swimming staff could have been more welcoming. I’d say good morning and get ignored. Too busy chatting amongst themselves. There was lots of long hair in the pool they could have cleaned up. Aside from that we had a great time and would visit again. Furniture in cottage had wobbly chairs that need replacing as a potential hazard. Other than that, the accomodation was lovely thanks.

Life guards were generally lazy.
Inflatables were advertised for the Wednesday.... they were not going to put any out... had to remind them about this and then they half heartedly threw a few blow up things into the pool... we had to ask for more inflatables as they had put so little out and there were more people than inflatables ... they begrudgingly did this... they didn't seemed to care about the guests reaklyvwanting to have fun in the pool
