"Very rarely do you find such a place as this hidden gem at The Jonas Centre. We would highly recommend, if you need some time out, peace and some quiet, or just to be still, then we recommend The Jonas Centre."

"I have come across no other centre where I have felt as welcomed and where every effort has been made to meet all our requests. And at the same time a personal interest in me - From my very first visit I never felt simply like a paying customer but someone who is known and cared about. I can only thank all involved again for creating such a wonderful place and for all your support over the years, bending over backwards to help us as we seek to serve our young people."

"Here we are again at The Jonas Centre and Sowing Seeds annual camp. 2011 was our first year and we just love seeing children and families having a break, having a nice time together with fellowship."

"“The welcome, the tidiness of the cabins, beautiful setting, flexibility of facilities, 'not having changed' - in the sense we knew what we could do and we like what we can do!, the space but also that it is safe for children to run around and enjoy.”"
Lilavati Ishaya, Brightpath
""The verbal introduction to the centre by Simon, he's hilarious, we all loved his sense of humour. The cabins were presentable and clean. The playground is well maintained and simple.""

""This is the 4th time we've visited. This time with family. Not only is it in a beautiful setting and very peaceful, it is a brilliant base for lots of attractions. The cabins are always clean and well equipped. The staff are fantastic and we will be back!""

"What did you do well? - Welcoming us to the venue and helping us to set up. Setting the tone at the welcome meeting (Simon is a star!!) Having a wonderful venue set in beautiful countryside. Being relaxed about the use of the venue and making us feel so welcome and relaxed. Generally being a delight to deal with, and making everything so simple and straight forward - a lot of '5 star' venues could learn a lot for their customer services skills from spending a week with you :-)"
