My fiancee booked the break as a Christmas surprise and it was a very good choice.
On arrival we were put at ease straight away and given a little tour of the lodge with a potted history which was interesting.
Our room was very nice and clean. Admittedly the bathroom was a bit outdated but I fully understand that a small business can't do it all at once and it was clean.
Lovely view to wake up to every morning.
Bar was excellent, very cosy with a good choice of drinks (and board games!). We didn't try the restaurant but the menu looked good. Breakfast was delicious and Mike was very accommodating - basically, if they have it, it's on the menu.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet break in nice surroundings.
Note to Mike - thanks for being a very genial host, we felt very much at home. Sorry didn't tell you our names (Philip and Meg), the young couple.
