La yem

We booked this lodge for the second time as we were so impressed the first time we stayed. We were pleased with the redecoration of much of the lodge which has been tastefully done. The lodge is very comfortable and nice and warm after days out. We did experience an issue on the first night of our stay in that the twin room had wet patches on the beds. We hadn't noticed this until we went to get into bed at around 11.30pm but despite the late hour I can only commend the night reception staff who dealt with the matter promptly. We are looking forward to a return visit and would recommend this lodge.

Review date: 14th October 2017

Thank you for reviewing your stay, Carol. We were sorry to hear there was an issue with the twin beds on your first night, it appears the duvets had been washed and not fully dried hence two damp mattresses. Thank you for letting us know it was promptly resolved and we assume you went on to have a good nights sleep. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused at the time. L'al yem is a super option for those looking for comfortable accommodation at a very competitive price. A delightful two bedroom lodge and fully equipped for a relaxing break in the Lakes. We are so pleased to hear you will be returning and very kind of you to recommend this lodge to others.

Short stay in white cross bay

Lodge overall excellent comfortable with everything you would need for a home from home stay Issue with oven as their seemed to be a problem with seal,didn't report it as we ate out most nights,hose on shower had a fair bit of black mound which could have been cleaned better,overall just minor issues didn't put us off and wouldn't stop us from booking again.main issue was with the lack of lighting in the park itself which was very poor,couldn't see anything at night also park is supposed to be dog friendly,yet we couldn't take the dog into the club wouldbe good if you had a section that could be used for dog owners

Review date: 29th September 2017

Thank you for reviewing your stay at La'l Yem, Christine. We appreciate bringing a couple of minor maintenance issues to our attention and these will be addressed. The park has low level lighting which most guests find adequate. Regrettably the park has a policy of not allowing dogs into the restaurant area at present and we are sorry if this caused you any inconvenience. We will pas son your comments to the park management for their information as this policy is out of our control as booking agent for this privately owned lodge. We are glad you enjoy your stay at L'al Yem which we agree is a very comfortable, homely lodge offering great value for money.

Wonderful home from home

Extremely well equipped cabin with everything you need. It's very spacious but homely and welcoming at the same time and spotlessly clean. The bed in the master bedroom is so comfortable and there is plenty of cupboard space throughout. The location is good too - 2 minute walk to the kids play park and main reception - and the decking is enclosed so it is safe for kids and dogs.

All good

We had a nice, comfortable stay. Lodge was well equipped and met all our needs so I would definitely stay again. We were joined by an extra guest in the guise of a VERY large spider!

Our stay at L'al Yem

Our stay was very comfortable, clean , good location to the main building. Only down side we couldn't get the oven to ignite (Good excuse to eat out). Would love to stay again soon.

Review date: 16th August 2017

We appreciate your comments, Karen and we were sorry to hear you had a problem igniting the oven. We have had no further reports of any issue although we will check to make sure it is working correctly. Sometimes it can be a little fiddly, although had you let us know at the time a member of our maintenance team would have resolved this for you. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Having said that and with such an excellent choice of eateries nearby, it is a great excuse to eat out. We were delighted to hear you would love to return to L’al Yem. A super holiday home that offers great value accommodation, peace and quiet and a good location on the park and an excellent location for exploring the Lakes.

Good Base

Lodge is on corner ploy a couple of minutes from club house which was handy for a drink and food. Decking at front of lodge in shade most afternoons a bit of noise from main road. lodge was in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. Two sofas one very comfortable double bed a bit to firm for our liking. Overall very good and reasonably priced would recommend.

Review date: 21st May 2017

Thank you for your review, Alan and letting us know you enjoyed your stay at L’al Yem. Very kind of you to comment on the excellent condition of the lodge, thank you. With reference to the noise from the road we are aware a slight noise can be heard occasionally although this is minimised by the tress and the road is usually very quiet throughout the night. We do apologise on this occasion for any inconvenience caused and trust it did not impact too much on your stay. As you rightly point out the lodge is well positioned for peace and quiet - A super option for those looking to relax and unwind. We have passed on your comments about the comfort of the bed to the lodge owners and we will check for any sign of damage although we do find that comfort is personal preference. L’al Yem offers families or couples great value accommodation in the Lakes and fully equipped for an enjoyable stay. Thank you once more for your kind comments and for recommending L’al Yem to others. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future (complete with your returning guest discount!)
