8/10 Very Good

Beautiful rooms but lacks some basics
Very comfortable and beautiful rooms. Looked even better than the photos. Great having a private jacuzzi to use. Generally clean, though there was mold in the clothes washing detergent tray we had to clean out before using. Biggest glaring issues were 1) No in-room Wi-Fi; Wi-Fi only available in main area, which closes in the evening 2) Though there is a full kitchen, no basic condiments or supplies were provided. No paper or cloth towels, salt, pepper, dishwashing detergent, clothes washing detergent, nothing to clean with. There was a very nice welcome bag that included Prosecco, milk, tea, coffee and sugar, which was appreciated, but it would have been nicer to have other basic needs available. 3) No hairdryer in rooms; main desk charged a 5 pound deposit to borrow, which they waived when we weren't able to provide exact change.

Hopefully we’ll be back!
Reception staff were helpful. Pool staff went out of their way to help with the shower. Lodge was comfortable and mainly clean. Grill pan needed washing and carpet soiled in places. I couldn’t get the grill to remain lit. Maybe I wasn’t using it correctly??? Overall, lodge was comfortable, adequately equipped and well heated. Thank you for a lovely time.
