​​​​​​​As the manager of a sports team full of young lads, the staff and facilities available to us made our stay an incredible experience. Arcady Hall took care of all our catering and were flexible with times for dinners, which took so much pressure off myself allowing me to focus on the sports side of things. 

In all the years of travelling around the country for softball tournaments, I haven't stayed at a better place than what Ollie and the team at Arcady Hall provided. ”
