The only positive thing about this lodge is its location. Very central. The room we stayed in was terrible. The beds were old&worn out and sagged in the middle. The bathroom was tiny and the toilet flush mechanism did not release which was very annoying. The towels we were given were also old. There was no lounge area to speak of with the most uncomfortabLe bench to sit on. Some of th cupboards in th kitchen were broken, there was no freezer. The rooms were not cleaned for the duration of our stay. There was very poor reception on th tv. A big problem was also the lack of secure parking. We had to park on the road outside. All in all definitely not worth the money we spent and would not recommend this place to anyone!
