I agree with the other reviews that East Ayton Lodge is in a lovely setting and that the staff are lovely.Unfortunately there are just not enough of them to deliver the service they claim to offer.
I would describe the Lodge as a really comfy, good value country inn, with good food and friendly staff and excellent value for money. It is NOT a country house hotel.....YET!
Although it has all the ingredients to make a great country house hotel, they have not yet got the recipe quite right and are trying to run before they can walk.
The honeymoon suite is large and comfy. The other rooms however are badly in need of updating and look more like outdated motel rooms.Any updating that seems already to have been done looks very home DIY.
My recommendation would be to employ some tradesmen and blitz the place.(Indeed, they may already be planning this) Decide whther you are going comtemporary or traditional as this also seem to be confused.
Having said this, we did get what we paid for and had a lovely stay. If you would like a nice quiet break but are not expecting a particularly luxurious room then you can't go wrong with East Ayton Lodge.
I am looking forward to them completing the renovations and getting the recipe right. I would then gladly pay more for a little extra luxury and improved quality.
