Generally the visit was a pleasant experience.The lodge was good, clean and had all that you would expect.The hot tub was well maintained( twice a day). Very disappointed with the fact when we bought drinks on the app as opposed to the bar direct there was a £5 difference and even when we questioned this were just told it happens.Suffice it to say we didn't stop for more. Finding the lodge is challenging as there are a lot and close together but you get a tour of the site finding yours.

Thank you for leaving a review, Helen. Whilst pleased you enjoyed your stay at Spiral Steps we were sorry to hear you were disappointed with the Order and Pay App introduced by the park. Although we have no control over how the park or onsite facilities are run we will of course pass this on to the park management for their reference – thank you. Noting you had trouble finding the lodge, directions are provided in the arrival information although we will look at setting these out more clearly if that is needed on reflection. We are delighted that when you finally arrived at the lodge, everything was to your satisfaction for an enjoyable stay. Spiral Steps is a cosy two bedroom lodge with hot tub and roof top balcony! A delightful and relaxing place to stay.
