“Home from home.”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

Stayed at the Lodge for four nights with our Fell Walking Club,could not fault anything,the rooms the food the beer all great value. The staff could not have been better,nothing was to much trouble Paul the manager and Helen and all the staff. Would highly recommend Affcot Lodge to all, plus the walking in the area is wonderfull.

Room Tip: If light sleepers choose rooms furthest from road.

Stayed here for a wedding nearby.

Very nice place run by a lovely couple who were willing to help in any way they could.

We had an evening meal & breakfast here - both of which were very nice.

If ever in the area again would have no hesitation to stay at Affcot Lodge

Affcot Lodge is situated on a busy road so is ideal for a stopover.

The lodge is run by a hardworking, professional and friendly couple who, quite honestly go the extra mile. If there is anything you require that is not already available they will bend over backwards to help provide it.

The rooms are plain and clean with comfortable beds. The food is reasonably priced. The restaurant is efficiently run and Paul is continually looking out for you, ensuring you have everything you need.

If you are looking for fancy accommodation, then you might be disappointed but, if you are looking for a decent nights sleep at a reasonable price, with good food, nicely presented, then you will be OK here.

The hotel was very clean and comfortable and was pretty cheap - very good value for money. The meal we had there was good and the service was excellent. Very good choice of beer behind the bar and very attentive management.

After spending the last few hours of our 4-day short break touring the lovely Shropshire countryside we have just arrived home in Lincolnshire. Having lived in the area many years ago it was wonderful to simply motor around Shropshire and Herefordshire revisiting favourite haunts. However, we feel we must say how comfortable the whole journey has been mainly because we were lucky enough to 'happen' upon Affcot Lodge (via Laterooms). The Lodge is to be commended on its ability to make guests feel relaxed and welcome, our room was bright and comfortable and we found the food to be extremely good - and plentiful. The car parking area is huge and in our case, always in full view of our room. In summing up Affcot Lodge, it would be fair to say that the owners/managers and staff come across as both genuine and generous and it will be a pleasure to use the same accommodation again if and when we return to the area.

Stayed here this week (29th Aug) and found Affcot Lodge via Laterooms.com.
After a 16hr day all I wanted was room,shower, food and bed and I'm glad to say I got what I wanted!
I paid £50 b&b, the room had a comfy double bed, and a bathroom with a shower (albeit) attached to the taps. That said it wasn't a problem and the water was lovely and hot. Room was very clean and tidy.
I only had a light meal as it was late, the homemade fish cakes are spot on and even better with a pint of Hobsons Bitter.
Breakfast options were good, cereals, hot cooked food too. Despite eating fish I don't eat other meat and was greatful for the Linda McCartney sausages which went well with my perfect poached eggs.

Sat right on the A49 I had no issues with noise and probably had one of the best night sleeps for a longtime.
I've now found a useful haunt when I'm next in the area.

Nice one!

Room Tip: I was in room 10 but I'm sure they are all good
