The Ark was truly a amazing place. The rooms were small but the atmosphere was awesome. We were only there for one night but I could have stayed for a couple more. The lone bridge from the parking lot to the lodge was so beautiful

I am not aware that there is an age restriction. I took my 9 year old granddaughter there. I think it might be an issue, for other guests if your child is noisy!!!

There is no laundry service at The Ark, probably because the majority of visitors only spend one of two nights there. Aberdare Country Club is likely to have this service though.
