Only stayed 1 night. 4 in the family. Could only get 1 cabin, 1 bed with bathroom and 1 cabin with 1 singe and 1 double bed, no bathroom. Ablutions block. Had to get up 3 times in the night and go out side to the ablutions block which had heating. very clean .Cabin with one large bed and bathroom had a few problems. No lock on bathroom door. Door was angled down and did not shut properly. Shower just had a curtain. Tried the spa at opening time the departure day, 8.30am. 4 or five pools. Had to walk down a drive beside the office. Could not take the car , for disabled only. HOW ABOUT OLDER FOLK like me with painful knees and back? Had to walk. Spa was the best I had been to by far. Approx 4 pools, the hottest being 40 degrees. aprox 1.3 metres in the deepest end. with all sorts of water outlets, Fountains, etc. Could have stayed in the pools longer but had to go.

We had a lovely stay at DeBretts - the service at reception was warm and friendly, our room was immaculate and perfect for our family if 5, and the kids lived the amenities. We’ll be back!

The vibe of the resort is nice, however the beds in our cabin needed replacing. The bunk bed squeaked and wobbled any time the person in the top even took a breath, and then single bed mattress was so old and saggy I had to use the pillows underneath the middle of it to prop it up. The communal areas were all clean and tidy and staff were very friendly, it was just the sleeping accomodation that was disappointing.
