    “Good lodge in a nice location of a well maintained park.”

    Park's location is good for bus travel and bus services are better than many places. Owners emphasise treating the lodge like you would your home and this is an attitude we always adopt. They request hoovering on departure and was happy to oblige. However the cleanliness of the lodge didn't match our home or our expectations. We understand dog friendly and walker premises can become tired quicker than properties not offering these services and we are grateful for such premises but the lodge ...

    Park's location is good for bus travel and bus services are better than many places. Owners emphasise treating the lodge like you would your home and this is an attitude we always adopt. They request hoovering on departure and was happy to oblige. However the cleanliness of the lodge didn't match our home or our expectations. We understand dog friendly and walker premises can become tired quicker than properties not offering these services and we are grateful for such premises but the lodge looks like it hasn't had a seriously good clean for a while. Cobwebs on windowsills and worktop along with built up grease and dust on microwave betray quite a neglect. Leather settees not particularly practical either. We didn't let all this detract from a good sized and well located property and wouldn't put anyone off staying here but we will say that in such a competitive market it wouldn't surprise us to find equally attractive properties with better cleanliness are readily available. All in all then a good stay which with a little raise in standards of cleanliness could be even better
