Just spent the weekend here. Very fun, campground atmosphere and entertaining pub for the evenings, but ownership/management needs to spend some money on cleaning, updates, and amenities! Most of the facilities are severely outdated and run down. There was garbage all over the grounds especially in the pool area. The pool itself was disgusting and given the amount of dirt and debris on the bottom each morning obviously not cleaned overnight despite the extremely heavy traffic each day. Rooms smelled of mold and had zero amenities other than an old coffee pot with no coffee and towels you could use as sand paper. The lights were constantly flickering and some rooms randomly blew fuses. Meals were ok and the wait staff in the dining hall was terrific.
