8/10 Very good

Nice hotel let down by service .
Check in great . Warm welcome . Room comfortable and clean . Service in the restaurant lets the side down . The food is good but you certainly don’t feel like a valued guest. The waiting staff need training . Apart from this that a nice stay .

4/10 Fair

Small, compact and uninviting room for 2 people!
Definitely not a twin room as advertised. Poorly presented, broken toilet, leaking shower, no lock on bath door, roller blind broken in bathroom, no waste bags in bins, no ventilation in bathroom, leaking kettle, locked heating which was no good in a soaking wet day! Had to pull bed apart as set as double - arrived too late to complain and concerned that room given as part used Hotel Reward. Disappointing stay in small uncomfortable room.
No lock on toilet
Broken toilet sest
Dirty shower with mildew

8/10 Very good

Pleasant 2 night stay.
Room was described as a superior but I have been in standard rooms that were better. Room details specified black out blinds ! There weren’t any, the wardrobe was distressed and barely suitable for children’s clothes let alone adults, think it was on its last legs and I don’t think Drew Pritchard would give it a second look. The TV signal was dropping out intermittently so evenings viewing went south. The bar area was very nice and comfortable with an array of pictures on the walls to admire and a very pleasant view overlooking the grounds at the back. Breakfast was very good but was not impressed with the diner menu, had to wait until 6pm before the menu was really for viewing which ment we ate later than we would normally but the meal we decided on was nice. The Lodge is situated in a beautiful area and the building itself is a delight. Worth a stay.
