    Family Value

    The Gooderson motto is 'Good value. Good fun.' I feel they achieve on the good value part at Monks Cowl (except their drinks prices at the bar), breakfast and dinner buffets were quite good. However 'Fun' comes at a price, whereas other resorts have free activities or they cost much less. Wi-Fi didn't seem to work during our stay. It is obvious that the resort has had some renovation but a few areas are a bit shabby. The linen and pillows on the beds had seen better days. I would still recommend it as a good value stay.

    Overall a good family resort. Restaurant could be cleaner and the insect burden needs to be resolved. Rooms could also be cleaner.

    Good.

    Beautiful, peaceful and quiet environment. Comfortable rooms. Good and qualified staff. We booked a family room with breakfast and dinner included, but at the hotel children were not included for dinner, which was confusing. The children's playgrounds need an upgrade. Wear and tear are visible.
