                          We did not enjoy our overall experience at Shady Pines. We have 2 children and booked here because it claims to have a swimming pool which we planned to use to occupy the kids, it does not have a swimming pool. The family room has a bunk bed but nothing to prevent young kids from rolling off from a very high drop. Our room was not ready on check in and the staff seemed more interested in playing cards than helping us. The price was also pretty high for what you got in comparison to other options.

                          This was charming place with nice rooms. Just one niggle and I did mention it to the receptionist on duty - please warn any light sleepers not to be booked into Room 7. The extractor fan for the kitchen was switched on at 0600 for a party of early leavers and the outlet is right next to the window of Room 7. The noise at that hour of a Sunday morning cutting short one's sleep was very loud, cutting short our sleep.

                          It was such a wonderful place to stay over. Well equipped, friendly staff, great food and such a beautiful place.
