We had previously stayed in the Stables Lodge but the rooms have been refurbished since then. We were in 114 which was above the shop a little away from the main bar area. The room was perfectly adequate with a comfy double bed, TV, generous supply of tea, coffee and hot chocolate, hairdryer and decent storage for a couple of nights. The only slight niggle was there was only one bed side table.
We checked in at the Royal Oak hotel and received our keys. The only negative of our stay was the welcome at reception where the staff seemed more interested in sniggering than booking us in. I'm not sure what they found so amusing andit was off putting.
Staff experience aside it was a good stay and much cheaper than the actual hotel. The Lodge is central to the town so it is easy to park up and explore on foot. We had breakfast in the hotel one morning it was slightly cheaper to book ahead. The breakfast was Ok but nothing special. We enjoyed breakfast in the Alpine cafe the second morning which was nicer. We had dinner in the Stables Bistro one night that was tasty although busy. There were plenty of staff including a very nice old lady with grey hair who was friendly and almost made up for reception experience. We did enjoy sitting outside under the patio heater people watching and there was live music both nights.
