Firstly as a senior contributor I'd like to specify that my review is based on fact and my experience, as I believe some reviews were only written by 1st time reviewers and do not reflect the true experience of the hotel. We stayed on the 6th June.
Arrival at the hotel was surprising, due to previous reviews I did worry that this hotel would not be up to the standard I have become accustomed to. It was a beautiful location with a lovely looking hotel with plenty of parking. Check in was quick easy and friendly and we were in an executive room with a balcony overlooking the beautiful garden. Room 10. It was key card entry and when we walked in we were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely large room with a queen size bed, co ordinating furniture, a flat screen TV, very good quality bedding, large wardrobe a dressing table/desk with large mirror and another full height mirror on another wall, bedside chests and another chest of drawers. Plus a table and 2 chairs! So plenty of storage! The bathroom was large with a shower over the bath. The room was spotless as was the bathroom! We had French doors out onto the gardens with our own patio with seating area fenced off either side for privacy. A nice touch as we are both smokers, so no wandering around to find a secluded area to smoke. We were there for the t'pau concert at the concord club and were lucky enough to sit in the garden with them. The garden is beautiful with a stream and bridges that cross to the Moldy Fig wine bar and the Concorde club. The room has a handbook with all the info you need. The shower is very powerful and easy to use. There is also tea and coffee and hot chocolate etc in the room which they will top up whenever you need it with no extra cost. the bed was extremely comfortable with good quality pillows. We slept like a log! breakfast is served in the Moldy Fig across the bridge with a good range of cereal and fruit etc, lots of different juices. You are served at the table for tea and coffee and you can specify what you'd like for a cooked breakfast. During the wait you are brought toast and there's no real wait for the cooked breakfast to arrive. The breakfast was lovely, very very tasty and included in the booking. In my opinion I would class this as a 4 star hotel and not a 3! I have no idea why other reviews are so low, perhaps they are reviewing a different hotel?
We really didn't want to leave! I had a better experience here than I had the week before at a 5 star hotel! I really didn't expect this experience at the Ellington Lodge, it exceeded my expectations! We would most definitely come back to this hotel. If I had any complaints I wouldn't hesitate to comment, but there was nothing! And my standards are very high!
