Me and my partner are just home from staying in the VIP lodge for a week. First of all we were unable to travel down on the day we had booked for personal reasons. I called Jane and she was happy to help even though she did not work Sundays she was happy to go down in the morning and leave the keys in the lodge for us and make sure everything was ready for us arriving the Sunday afternoon. Jane seemed really lovely on the phone however we did not see anyone the rest of our stay. This was good as it was a peaceful holiday and we were left to relax however if anything had went wrong or we had any questions then there was no one available to ask. Also it stated we were to get our pool tested every couple days which we never seen anyone at all come to test our pool.
It was a lovely quiet area not much to do if you don't have a car but luckily we had a car and even though there still wasn't much to do we were able to try keep ourself busy for the week. There was a tesco near by which says 24 hour which was good for our shopping. The lodge itself was cosy how ever the peacocks ruined our hotub experience. We had 6 peacocks surrounding our hot tub during the day they would sleep and poo all over it which stopped us from being able to enjoy it during the day. The peacocks used to sleep outside our patio doors for hours at a time and poo everywhere which meant we were only able to enjoy the hot tub at night. I'm not normally a fussy person but the price we paid was not worth it. The biggest complaint I have is the bed is awful you can feel the springs poping up when you lie on it. The bed is so low and uncomfortable and the mattress is really thin. The pillows are really thin also and you were lucky if I was able to get 4 hour sleep a night. The tv has satellite but the signal and volume are rubbish so we bought a DVD to use while we were there. As other reviews state it is not VIP whatsoever. I didn't even feel the hotub was that great cause we were unable to take full advantage because of the birds. The last complaint I have is when we went to hand our keys in the morning there was no one there so I had to post them through the reception door at quarter to 10 and check out was at 10. I'm sure the staff are lovely here but we were there for a week and never met any. In total I had a really nice relaxed week and enjoyed the break away. It was a lovely place and lovely lodge apart from the couple complaints. I probably wouldn't go again though.
