We stayed at the Lodore on the 27 th and 28 th June to celebrate a special wedding anniversary.
The first room we were shown to which overlooked the lodge next door , looked extremely ' tired ' , certainly nothing special ! I have to say we have stayed in better rooms in Travel Lodges.My husband asked if we could change rooms ,shown to another room which did look to have been refurbished, more like the standard of room we were expecting.We were given a seat in the dining room with an excellent view and we did enjoy our meals,food very good,but, on the first night we were served our starter and ' then forgotten ' about. We did ask about this when numerous other diners who had arrived much later than us were finishing their meals, while we were still waiting in anticipation of our main course. The waiter apologised, telling us our meal would be ready in about 10 minutes.The 'head waiter', delivered our meal, but did not acknowledge what had happened and was noticeably absent when we left an almost empty restaurant, very disappointed with this service. We did not make a ' fuss' as we were not going to let this incident spoil our weekend away. My husband also spent the 2 days away sneezing and feeling congested, which stopped when we arrived home. We had not realised when we booked this hotel that dogs are allowed in all bedrooms . Disappointing stay at the Lodore!
