We had read good reviews about this lodge, but unfortunately we did not have a good experience. We arrived at approx. 4:00 p.m. after travelling from 5:00 in the morning. My husband was ill and just needed to get some food and lie in bed. The restaurant at the lodge was closed so we went into town to get some food at the super market. By the time we returned at 5:00 the guard at the gate informed us that the reception was closed. The front desk staff failed to tell us that we had to pre-book breakfast, so by the time we read this in our room after 5pm, there was no one at the front desk to inform of our wish to have breakfast.
We were in the ground floor room of 4-plex lodge and there was a family with small children above us. There was absolutely no insulation between the rooms and we heard every extremely loud creak in the floor, their voices and arguments and this went on for 5 hours before they went to bed. It was unbelievably loud. They awoke before 6 am and consequently so did we. We also heard the conversations of the people in the room adjacent to us on the ground floor.
The bed sheets were dirty and the wood for the fire would not light in the fireplace (we tried three times using all of the fuel provided).
We slept poorly, had no breakfast and left early the next morning due to the circumstances. I did relay all of this to the front desk staff, who subsequently said, that she had accommodation on the grounds and she could have been contacted. This had not been relayed to us by the guard.
We were very disappointed by our experience.
