    Totara Lodge Stay

    From the time we arrived service, room, very good. Not at all quiet, could hear everything from other rooms and given the Bar next door. Ventillation in Bathroom, even with the Fan and Window open during and after showering, steamed up the area quite bad. Nowhere other than bathroom to wash dishes which is a big no no in our books. Purchased a little tub and water (heated by jug) to do dishes.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I was pleasantly surprised by our one night stay here. The check in experience was really good, very helpful and accommodating of our needs. Upon arrival in our room was a handwritten card welcoming us with a little treat, a much appreciated touch. The room was large and spacious, well appointed and very clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot with good pressure (two very important points). As it was a Saturday night there was a lot of outside noise coming from the neighbouring bar, both from music and patrons. The fridge in the room was quite noisy, I got up and unplugged it so that problem was easily solved. Overall a very comfortable and pleasant experience.
