Main floor room was clean and bed was comfortable. Extrememly dark, however, as window faces parking lot at eye level and we had to keep blinds closed for privacy. We brought some of our own food only to find that there were no dishes or cutlery whatsoever. Reading thru other revew just now, I see this has been a going concern yet to be addressed. There was a faint overall sense of the lodge being in need of some oomph and rejuvenation decor-wise.
Price of room was far too high for what it was.
We were looking forward to eating at Buglers, the on-site restaurant, based on the rather glamourous description found on the website. The pub menu & breakfast was quite good and the server was gracious. The dining room just was not as "swanky" as we'd expected but oh, well...However, our last meal there (an anticipated fancy dinner) was a bit of a gong show and I seriously doubt "the culinary team" referred to in the literature provided is still in residence.
We felt, actually, the whole dining experience had been grossly misrepresented. Food for dinner was sub par and expensive.
The natural setting and surroundings are the saving grace of this lodge.
