Warm, kind hospitable staff who go above and beyond to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. Fantastic kitchen! And the rooms are spacious, and warm. It is our hotel of choice when visiting my son’s school. A true gem. A little bit of a dirt road drive but once you get used to it, it adds to the charm of this lodge

Our stay was fantastic, monkeys on the roof were fun especially as we arent use to having monkeys around coming from the UK! Lovely location, food was outstanding, staff worked really hard and were so attentive, would highly recommend and will return.

My wife and I recently visited Lythwood for our honeymoon and our stay was very enjoyable. They upgraded us to the honeymoon suite for free and the food was absolutely world class! The surroundings were beautiful and there is lots to do in the area. Lythwood is a lovely place to visit!

Lovely stay with the most welcoming staff. Beautiful location - peaceful and tranquil. Perfect patio for a sundowner! Food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The staff were welcoming and excellent. The facilities were relaxing and just what you would expect, with a beautiful country setting! Rooms (mini flat) were very spacious and included everything you would possibly need, pity we didn't stay long enough to enjoy the fireplace! The food was good and a very enjoyable dinner experience!
