We found the Purdy lodge to be a basic roadside stopover, which is exactly why we booked it. It was much cheaper than staying in Newcastle and we needed a three bed room.
We were imediatley put off by the "dog friendliness" of the place, encountering several animals during our one night stay and with dogs which we could hear in the next room.
I have no idea how this is a four star other than it has a bar / restaurant and 24 hr cafe. The room was clean and comfortable with a good view over the fields, bathroom clean, but shower very weak and a mouldy shower curtain.
We ate in the restaurant , service fine and the food was okay for what it was but the table was very sticky which wasn't good.
I wouldnt stay here again but if you want a one night cheap stay its okay.More
