We visited Pax Lodge this past July. My sister has been a Guide Leader for almost 30 or more years so this was a place that was on her "to do list".
We ate lunch & dinner at the lodge along with our first 'British Tea'.
The staff was brilliant, very helpful. We were able to use the internet while we were there and it was quite reasonable.
The tour was also very good.
I think this would be a great place to take Girl Guides while in London and would consider the accommodations more along the lines of a 'hostel' rather than anything else. It's nothing fancy but it was really clean. We did not stay at the lodge.
But, their volunteers are what made this a great visit. The tours that they gave were very nicely done. If they were not able to answer a question they were diligent and did their best to find the answer.
Food was good, tea was a nice experience.
Go just to meet the volunteers! Plan your visit in advance and bring a patch from your guide facility with you. People love to look at all the different ones that are collected from all over the world.
