My brother and I attended an ice climbing beginner experience two months ago. I have nothing but praise for the centre, package and instructor (Anne Rebecca). We will definitely be attending again and recommend it to everyone!

If you just want to climb, you can turn up and pay. I’d say if you wanted to participate in one of the instructed sessions, it would be safer to book.

Sorry not quite sure what the question is, I didn't mention breakfast in my review , I spoke mainly about the facilities themselves, having the cafe there is a bonus, it is an amazing place well worth the visit
