I stayed here for four days over the Christmas holidays with my girlfriend and here family. We were lucky enough to have a three bed lodge, which was immaculately clean, well-presented and stylishly decorated. There was a nicely decorated Christmas tree, with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine....a welcome and classy touch!!!
Its easy these days to write reviews and be irrational with minor faults. However, the lodges were immaculate and well worth the money that was paid for it. The extras such as hot-tub, t.v in the bathroom, en-suite in the master bedroom, log burner, under floor heating, to sum it up a perfect place to spend a family Christmas.
Unfortunately we did not get to use all the facilities offered, however we had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and it was very nice and reasonably priced, the waitress was a bit all over the place, but she apologised 'for having an off day' which was nice but really very minor faults she made nothing to ruin you.
We had a slight issue with hot water, but largely because the gf's sister and partner used all the hot water (Given the size of the tank a miracle but they are a pain in general!!) and struggled to get more, we had to call maintenance who arrived within 5minutes of us calling and was gone within five minutes of arriving and the problem solved. Not a major issue that would ruin your holiday but quickly and expertly dealt with, superb service!!
Overall the whole experience was fantastic and it made for a thoroughly memorable Christmas, I would definitely recommend the lodges and am already looking at going back in the summer!
