“The girls’ netball coach was excellent; her manner with the girls was excellent. The boys’ training was good and the training facilities were excellent. The rugby fixture was excellent, well-hosted, providing food after the match. Overall an excellent holiday. Great hotel and a fantastic part of the world.”
