We chose this site initially due to the castel chain standards. We have never found such a good site for its safety, service to customers, cleanliness and friendly staff and owners who are constantly there to lead the team.

The park is very well kept, friendly and helpful staff, lots to do for a range of ages but also peaceful at night/early morning. The lagoon is a fun option for water play, especially given the pool is not the biggest, but having said that our children still enjoyed the pool and slides. We enjoyed the crepe party and appreciated the no-cost inflatables available in the garden on those evenings. We felt the cost of activities was reasonable, which has not always been the case at other parks.

Excellent, family run and friendly. Lot of free stuff to do but paid activities were reasonably priced - for example children's bike hire was great value and we never felt (as is the case at some other places) that we were being ripped off. Would definitely recommend.
