We came as an overnight birthday treat and my what a treat it was. My only 1 regret was that we did not stay longer. On arrival we walked to the lodge which is not far at all from the station or city centre. We could not believe our eyes as we were getting closer to the lodge. I nudged my partner and asked if we were in the right place. We were greeted with affection and kindness and our booking was dealt with such speed. The reception is amazing with a small but well decorated area and seating. The library was quaint and comfortable, a nice spot to have an evening drink or read and socialise with other guests. We entered our room and were breath taken by the décor, small room for two but extremely cosy and exceptionally clean. We had a wonderful outstanding view of the Cathedral from our window and at night the cathedral is lit up so looks spectacular through the window of our room whilst in bed. We walked around the town at night and had to use a different entrance after a certain time. We found the door and rang the bell, security promptly opened the door, we showed our pass and in we went. We spent a late night in the library to read and talk, the man on reception at night was lovely and knowledged about the area. A wonderful quiet night sleep, the bells from the cathedral were refreshing to hear in the morning and breakfast was fresh and hot(continental only). On leaving we had regrets to go but vowed to come back. Well done all at the lodge for making our stay one of the best yet.
