Wonderful lodge stay

I wanted somewhere to stay which was in an excellent location and walking distance to various places. We were so impresssed with the lodge, it was so homely and welcoming, and the rooms were all well equipped and very spacious. I couldn’t fault it. The instructions that were given during and on arrival were very informative. We went as a family of 6 and we will be going back. Thank you and we all had a great stay. Would recommend to anyone.
