REVIEW BY: J Sessions - October 2014
Me and my wife booked a week at this site taking our touring caravan, we went from Thursday to Thursday, The site itself is lovely set out and it is kept very clean, and the lake is beautiful. the main thing that won it for us was the fact they they had an onsite lovely restaurant and we were looking forward to having a celebratory meal here, but because of 'Lack of Information' on behalf of the site, this was not to be, We arrived on Thursday and was greeted by the Receptionist who gave us plenty of information, she told us the Restaurant was open Thursday, Friday, Saturday Evenings and Sunday Lunch. and to quote the sites website about the Restaurant 'The Bothy Restaurant is the perfect place to unwind on your break away.' unquote... we decided that we would go for Sunday Lunch, my wife went to the Bothy on the Friday (Day after we had arrived) to get a menu for Sunday Lunch only to be told that They were fully booked for Sunday Lunch, and there were no places, they get booked up weeks in advance. Nobody told us this when we arrived, there is no notification of this on the website, the only notification is that booking is advisable, also we found out that the Restaurant is open to none patrons, so its booked up by people from outside. you would think that this would be mentioned on the website, also you would think they would save some tables for people who are staying on the site as this is meant to one of the site attractions ??? the site fees are not that cheap per night and you pay the extra because the restaurant is part of the attraction to staying. Obviously if the Restaurant is booked up weeks in advance for the Sunday lunch, (as we were informed by the lady in the Restaurant) we would have had no chance of dining there anyway!!!, This should be stated in the website or asked if you would like to book a table when you book your site or when you arrive to pay your site fee... as we were leaving on the following Thursday, we had no chance of a meal at all. seeing as the restaurant was one of the main points of booking this site, we felt that we could have found a site a lot nearer home that is just as nice without a Restaurant. don't think we will visit again, when we asked the owner he just said 'Well it should say on the Website that you 'Have' to book early, well it doesn't, and if that was the case, just HOW early.. a few months??? maybe its a case of Outsiders filling the Restaurant are valued above the caravanners and holiday people who pay the fees that keep the site going. we decided that we would leave earlier than we had when we booked, yes we lost some money as we had paid for the full term but hey, what price is disappointment...
How often do you look at booking a holiday and wish that you could ask the opinion of someone who has actually stayed there? You might want to know what the food is like, which block is the quietest to stay in at the hotel, when the best time of year to visit a specific destination is or where the local favourite restaurants are. With Real Holiday Reports, all of this is possible thanks to our travellers who submit real reviews and opinions on hotels, apartments, villas, holiday packages and more around the world.
Whether you’re hitting up the bars and beaches on Spain’s sunshine coast, cruising the tropical waters of the Bahamas, exploring Africa’s exotic wildlife or staying close to home in the UK, we’ve got real reports from visitors from all different walks of life letting you know where to go, what to see and what to do. There are tens of thousands of reviews written not by journalists or holiday companies, but by people like you who want to get the most out of their holidays and uncover their experiences to help you. Real Holiday Report’s community helps to put the decision into your hands of where to go and what to avoid on your travels, whether you’re looking for a quick and cheap weekend break or an all-out trip of a lifetime.
Not every resort is as perfect as it might seem in the brochure or on its website, and others might not show off their best sides, so our holiday makers have the opportunity to submit actual photos from their trips so that you can really get a feel of what a resort is like to check it out before you book or to be inspired with ideas for your next trip.
We’ve also put together handy guides and lists of top tips that come from our best reviews, including the finest bars and restaurants and the most exciting things to see and do at specific destinations.
If you’ve had a great holiday that you want to let others know about, or perhaps an experience that you wouldn’t want to repeat and want to warn other people about, submit it to our site with your opinions and photos.
Help others plan their perfect package holiday, find their hotel paradise or seek out only the best restaurants. After all, these are reviews written by you, for you.
