From the minute we drove off the ferry, we were impressed at the beauty of the island. The staff was very friendly that checked us in. The lodges are located just a 2 minute drive from the main castle part of the hotel. The lodges showed signs of wear on the outside of the building. The inside was no different. Paint was peeling off the walls, cracked sinks in the bathroom, everything just looked worn down. The attic ceiling access fell down and we could not get it to stay back in place. The cleanliness of the lodge was also questionable. Crumbs on the floor, smudges on the appliances,ants, and towels that smelled of mildew. Another problem we had was with the heat. It got uncomfortably hot and we were unable to adjust the temperature. It said in the manual that we needed to call the front desk, but there wasn't a phone in the lodge and we were out of the country and unable to use our cell phone. We had to sleep with the windows open. On a positive note, the set up of the lodges are great for a large family. Very spacious.
