The Sauna was a delight but that was not the highlight really as the overall ambiance of the place was spot on and made us feel extremely at ease from the moment we walked in. Communication with Thomas was simple and efficient - any queries I had were immediately sorted and our arrival / departure was seamless making the whole experience a relaxing and enjoyable one. Thank you very much.

Its location is ideal as its close to all amenities and public transport. There is plenty to do and see and Suzanne and Miri made themselves available to answer any questions and advice on where to go. I had a group of special needs adults and Suzanne was there to help meet any requirements that were needed to make their stay as comfortable as possible. They had a fantastic time and it was certainly an experience we will all remember. I highly recommend it. Thank you Suzanne and Miri !
