We stayed at the Lodge from 26th Feb - 1st March 2014 check in was easy and staff were friendly and polite (even the workmen on site who are finishing of the refurb of the hotel were polite). The car park is quite a tight squeeze but we always managed to find a space. The room (207) was large and newly decorated with a large dressing area, and a massive bed. Was on the verge of complaining that there was no tea and coffee facilities in the room but after a good search we found them in the dressing table cupboard. Breakfast is in the main hotel next door again service was excellent plenty of everything. On exploring the hotel we went down to the leisure centre, the young man on duty showed us all around which was nice and made our visit to the centre the next day for a swim and sauna hassle free, £1 coin is needed for the lockers and towels are provided. Pool was a good temperature and poolside was clean and tidy. We did not have any other meals in the hotel but what we saw being served looked nice. Overall a good stay.
