6/10 Good

Practical and friendly but in need of a makeover
We needed a local room while building work was going at our place. This was local. Check in was friendly and we were offered a selection of rooms, which was nice. We needed somewhere quiet. Unfortunately someone later took the room next door and played music all night til 3am and the walls are pretty thin. The shower was good, decent kitchen, tidy overall. Bed was pretty tragic, so a rough nights sleep but not all the Lodge's fault. I would probably give them another try if I had to.

This is the third time we have stayed. It is convenient to town, it is getting older and could do with a facelift. But we'd come back again.

8/10 Very good

It was clean, and had what was required. It was dated. The sofa was a little worn out. A little too expensive, considering the area and the overall offering. I would stay there again, as the staff were friendly and helpful. It had a very clean and tidy outside area, with pool, but the weather wasn't suitable.
