Week away together

I and my other half stayed at the lodge for 7 nights, it was enjoyable, the overall customer service was excellent they camenand fixed 2 problems we has whilst we were there, the lodge was abit dirty outside round the hot tub and had afew areas inside but it was good overall, there was so many things the owners had thought of that so we didn't need to get general items for cleaning, there was many nice touches like the free new slippers to use and other touches which we haven't had at our other stays, overall it was a nice experience.

A great new year getaway!

We stayed over the new year period, we have stayed in many lodges but this was one of the best and it was all the little things the lodge had that made it great! It has a great layout, spacious and great for our 9 month old baby and Labrador too! The hot tub was a lovely addition for a little treat!

Nice stay but needs improvement

Upon arrival the lodge looks beautiful and the inside looks lovely and cosy. We noticed excessive dust on the blinds in the bedroom quickly. This is an issue for my personally as I suffer with chronic asthma, so I wasn't too happy to be staying in a bedroom with so much dust so close to where I'd be sleeping. Also a lot of light bulbs were not working. A lot of the lights above the kitchen cabinets were out, with only 1 or of 5 working? The hot tub cover is broken too, which makes it difficult to pull off and put back on. I ended up cutting my hand quite badly on this. The safety balls to keep the metal bars in place are missing, which means the metal bar slips out of place. Overall I did enjoy my stay here. I would just expect closer attention to detail and a thorough clean of the lodge. My doggies enjoyed their stay; the area was lovely for walks. The hot tub was lovely once inside.
