Had a lovely time in crimdon dene. Fab location, lovely staff always happy to help. Kids loved it always plenty for them to do.. Only downfalls was it was raining for the first 2 days and when we went down to kids club they advised it was still outside despite the awful weather so we were just left with nothing to do for the kids but other than that we enjoyed it and will be going again this year

We were told there was a takeaway located on the premises which there wasn't. The was one restaurant, its a small basic location. There were only 2 activities during the day which isn't enough to keep the children entertained.

I was very dissatisfied with our stay i came for my birthday with my children as the weather was bad. We went to the show bar to entertain the kids to be told there was no electricity on so the show and entertainment for the kids was cancelled, no winstead of been sent away i would uave thought they would have given the children something else todo that didnt require any electric they could have played game, coloured in pictures etc. As we had planned todo that we couldnt go swimming as it needed to be booked in advance im very dissappointed with our stay we even left early and came home dinner time sunday
