Thank you very much for the best house! It is amazing, our kids love it – they said they would live here forever! We had such a fun time also in Monkey World. Every time we come here we are having the best holiday! – Teja, Rok, Gal, Ean. (The Retreat)

I just wanted to say thank you for my stay in the supporters’ flat and the early entry to the park. The flat is lovely, particularly with all the drawings and knick-knacks around, which make it feel like home.
Having breakfast while watching Hananya’s group and listening to the gibbons call was incredibly special – and there were very few other humans about, which was wonderful!
It was an experience that I’ll never forget – thank you so much! – E Wallace

I would like to say that we loved the 2 bedroom flat we stayed in, it was beautiful, it was spotless and all the small touches inside just made it all the more amazing. From the amazing prints on the walls, the DVD’s {which we didn’t even get a chance to look at}, the Monkey World cups, Gordon placemats and coasters, right down to the monkey speaker and the Monkey World oven glove. On our first morning, I was sitting outside at 6am by myself, enjoying a cup of coffee … and I realised I could hear the gibbons singing. The extra hour we got to be in the park before it opened to the public was just amazing!! We had the most amazing time, and we will definitely be back!!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your two bedroom flat this weekend. It was extremely comfortable and clean and the animal prints really set us in the mood for a wonderful day in the park. It was such a treat to spend a quiet hour in the park before opening and allowed us the opportunity of some very close up views of the adorable orang-utan youngsters. We very much look forward to a return visit in the future. Once again thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Having just spent my 60th birthday weekend with my family in the supporter’s flats (thank you to Debbie for helping my daughter arrange this), I wanted to say a huge thank you.
The flats are wonderful, very comfy and beautifully accessorised. It was a pleasure to stay there. To go to the park for breakfast and to see the apes before the general public came in was amazing! I have never had such fabulous views in all the years I have been coming to the park.

Thank you for a wonderful stay we had at your two bedroom flat. The flat was perfect and it was so clean and spacious. We loved the decoration especially all the primate prints and the Gordon puzzle was a massive hit with our three year old son. We also thoroughly enjoyed our bacon sandwich every morning when we arrived at monkey world. All the staff we met at Monkey World were so helpful and kind to us. My son loved having the soft play area to himself before the park opened and watching Hananya’s group before the park opened was fantastic. The cafe was so clean and the highchairs were perfect to feed our 7 month old.

I would just like to thank all involved in making the stay my mum and I had at the supporters flat on the 7th and 8th April a brilliant experience. I had booked the trip for my mums 70th and it was very emotional for her as she never thought she would visit Monkey World. After a 7 hour journey from the North East the staff at the park could not do enough for us. All were welcoming and friendly. The flat was amazing and had everything we needed. We had a fabulous time over the two days and again the staff we met were brilliant. So much so we hope to book and visit again next year.

Checking out of The Retreat today and just wanted to let you know how fantastic our stay has been. The house is beautiful and has such a good feeling about it. We loved the remote location! Thank you for all your help (Monkey World was as incredible as expected and we treasured that first hour in the centre)

It was my first visit to the park and everything was just perfect! The flat was fantastic – well equipped, comfortable and very close to the park The photo tour was even better than I could have imagined. Mike was brilliant and although I have thanked him myself – please thank him again for me! He was informative and helpful!
From entering the park both of us can only say that each and every member of staff we saw was happy and polite and made us feel very welcome. The dedication and passion was clear to see.
Thank you so much.

Yesterday I got home after my lovely trip to Monkey World and the supporters’ flat, and wanted to e-mail to say thank you so much for a really super break. Mum and I had a wonderful time again, with the flat a perfect base for visiting the park and other places nearby. It is absolutely magical being able to get into the park an hour before opening time – spending time wandering around and watching the primates with only keepers for company is such a special thing to be able to do, and every single member of staff that we met was without fail polite and friendly. Everyone at Monkey World and the Jim Cronin Memorial Fund does such a wonderful job.

Just want to let you know we had a lovely stay in the flat. Much bigger than we were expecting it to be! Hot shower and comfy bed. Debbie was very friendly and helpful.
We also loved the luxury of having the park to ourselves for that first hour. We called in again on our way home just to hear the gibbons sing. Magical. The bacon sandwiches were much more substantial than we were expecting, cooked to our requirements, and lovely fresh bread. We bought a couple of sandwiches to travel home with, knowing we wouldn’t find fresher.

My partner and I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for your all your help with booking the apartment and arranging the personal tour. We had a lovely stay. The apartment was lovely and we had a great time at Monkey World. We hope to visit again in the future.
