  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

checkin time to late, checkout time too early. staff are not very friendly when helping my wife checkin because the ticket is under my name, they first say something that is quite offensive in stead of providing solution.

We had a cabin at the Caroline Thompson Cabins. They were clean and had a full kitchen and fridge. The only thing is you had to bring your own linen - sheets and pillow cases. They did provide the pillows and blankets - although - they all could use a really good wash! I would stay here again though. Absolutely lovely!
