Lovely location on the golf course, but there was no one available to welcome us and check us in. Access to the pool and outdoors blocked by gates and warning signs about the owners dogs and children. We couldn’t find any one to serve us a pre dinner drink so we went to the golf club. Breakfast had to be pre ordered the night before and was extremely basic. The room was a decent size and the bathroom had a bath and separate shoes. Totally underwhelming experience., very different to our previous visit a few years ago.

Perfect; it’s just missing a good restaurant close to the lodge. The snack of the golf club is to avoid. Otherwise, the room with the wiew on the golf and the swimming-pool was really perfect. Great place!

Staff were always willing to go the extra mile to see to our requests, especially their manager, Howard. We wanted to have a late breakfast for the first couple of nights and that was arranged, as well as a packed breakfast for an early morning day trip.

In general everything was to my satisfaction, the booking in process was easy and the staff very helpful. The room was comfortable although it might need a bit of a revamp as the bathroom is getting a bit old.
