I would not stay here again. Badly in need of updating the rooms (beds, furniture, appliances, décor etc). After checking in and paying for our four night stay upfront before viewing our room
, I wish I had only paid for the one night, and gone elsewhere the next morning. First night, woke up with a bad back, slept like a 'banana'.. mattress was sunken in the middle, springs were flat (without someone lying on them) and I would say are definitely way overdue to be replaced!! I thought I might swap for another mattress in the unit, but found they were all in the same bad condition. Pillows (or the linen on them) were what seemed clean, but they didn't smell very good. The TV was old and small, picture wasn't very clear and the flimsy table that the TV sat on was wobbly, too narrow and unsafe for any small children in the unit. The bathroom/toilet needed some sort of non-slip matting or non-slip tiles. The shower floor is the same level floor of the bathroom, and with smooth tiles throughout the bathroom, made it incredibly slippery after using the shower and even once it was dried with a towel, still slippery.. another hazard. No extraction fans in the bathroom, so to let the condensation out after a shower (or someone using the toilet), I had to push open the small window above the toilet which I had to stand on the toilet to get to and was hard and stiff to push open. There was a dirty roasting pan in the oven, obviously overlooked by the cleaners. The WiFi is expensive to use. The small section of grassed area in the grounds were untidy and unmown, and the communal pool area was untidy also. The only thing I enjoyed was the hot pool in the unit. The lodge is in a convenient location to town and all amenities, but overall unit/s need a good revamp inside and outside needs a good tidy to smarten up its appearance.
