When we first arrived, there was a note on the desk which said the guy had gone to do an airport run and would be back in 10 minutes, but it was actually about 20 minutes - bit annoying as we were very hungry and wanted to get food. When we got to our rooms ( a double and single) they did not look as good as advertised on wesbite. I will start with the single room. Shower room was nice and clean and so was bed, but tv was tiny and very high up and had trouble working it. There was tea left in the cup from the previous person so had to ask for a clean cup, then wasnt given a spoon. Double room - little bit dated and old fashioned, but tv worked okay. However, the radiator was boilng hot and on for several hours as there was no where to turn it off. In the bathroom the floor was all wet and damp, which created a horrible smell. Did hear quite a few cars go past in the night also, as we were at the front of the lodge near the main road. Also couldn't see any hairdryer as stated in the description. Breakfast was probably the worst bit. Only a few slices of white bread left, one of which has mould on the crust.... toaster took ages to toast the bread. The full english is tiny and very disappointing that it doesnt come with any beans! It consists of 1 piece of bacon (not two as most places provide) 1 sausage, few mushrooms, tomato and egg. My partners sausage was undercooked I believe, it was pink in the middle so I told him not to eat anymore of it half way through and this also put me off eating anymore of mine. So overall, it was average and you get what you paid for. It would do for one night but no more than.
