Positive Reviews

Fantastic on-site restaurant

Negative Reviews

Limited check in hours

Numerous guests report that they have had to wait some time to be checked in if not checking in during the regular but limited reception hours. Guests find this to be inconvenient and would prefer a longer window for checking in, or a quicker response when arriving.

No breakfast offered

There are no breakfast options other than self-catering, due to the in-house restaurant not opening until lunch. Guests suggest it would be nice to have the choice of a cooked breakfast in-house and the lack of this is an inconvenient element of this property.

Stairs required to access rooms

Multiple reviews mention that there is a flight of stairs to reach the rooms of this lodge. As there is no lift on-site this may be an issue for elderly or less mobile guests.
