The outings are great

I go on van outing once a week with xxx and it's like old times. We check out how all the old farms have changed over the years and can't get over how short many of the wheat varieties are these days. Brings a whole new meaning to a roll in the hay.

Thanks for loving after nan so well


Provider response:

Thanks for your feedback. It is such a pleasure to have your Nan around.

I love this place

Great service great staff

Mum loves it here. She's made lists of new friends and even met up with some old ones- it's not the same as living at home for her of course but it's the best we could all manage. Lots of families would feel like this I guess

What a dump

Meals nice but a bit boring

I've lived here now for 5 months and while the meals are nice, well presented and obviously healthy, they can be a bit boring. I'm used to quite a lot of Asian cooking and having these sort of dishes on the menu would increase my satisfaction immensely. Otherwise a pretty good place to live. The staff a re caring genuine people.


Provider response:

Thanks for the comment. Yes the staff are great. We all take pride in our service and yes we can certainly mix it up a bit more regarding the meals, we figure you won't be the only one who would like a bit of a change. We've got someone on staff who is giving our cook some tips (so he feels more confident with Asian cuisine),

A Sample Review

Aenean venenatis in risus id efficitur. Nunc hendrerit blandit feugiat. Donec mollis tellus porta semper congue. Suspendisse dictum magna ut ligula congue, id venenatis odio gravida.

Etiam congue magna et tellus mollis fermentum. Donec fringilla diam ac felis aliquam, sit amet euismod urna dictum. Morbi ullamcorper iaculis eleifend. Nullam et velit vel ipsum feugiat tempor. Sed nec tincidunt elit. Morbi metus libero, tincidunt vel accumsan quis, lobortis at ligula. Vivamus et eros a mauris placerat dignissim eget vestibulum elit.
