I understand that they just opened up after lock down, it was very clean but not enough crockery for 4 people, luckily we were only 2, glad I took my own toilet paper as you don't get 1 roll a day like they advertise. Asked for a broom but never got one just to sweep out. The howling dogs at night were annoying, loved the free roaming animals, ground staff cleared a path to the river so we could fish which was very nice, but in saying that it could have been done before we got there, I did book 2 weeks in advance. We did enjoy the get away and the peace and quiet but for the dogs, We wish smilin thru all the best and hope they can get back up to what it was like before lock down. We will definitely go again even though there where a few hiccups.

Lovely place. We really enjoyed the farm animals that roam freely around the grounds. Was a very unique experience, especially for the kids. We completely fell in love with the big black potbellied pig that we later found out is called Wilbert. If I can give one piece of critic, it would be how they switch off the geysers at night so there is no hot water early in the morning. If you shower after 9am, then there is hot water though. Other than that one small thing, it was lovely.

The area needs some renovations and proper cleaning. the room was not as clean but they came to reclean after I requested. the kettle had algae inside but was later cleaned.

It's in the beautiful location not far from Parys town for shopping.

The resort has one of the best camping sites, I will definitely try that next time and not the chalets.

There was some disturbing noise from cars who visited at the hotel, they drank until very late at night.

Otherwise, it is quiet area with beautiful trees and good for relaxing..

it would also help for the receptionist to inform guest on how to switch on electricity and water in the rooms.

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Smilin Thru. The camp sites are tidy and spacious and my kids loved that the whole place was a petting zoo. Will definitely go back
