Anthony, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
We booked the luxury family suite for 2 adults, and although beds were very comfortable and room was clean and the food was basic but wholesome and tasty. We found little things were just not up to scratch. ie we had a fire in our room and we had to go outside the room to get more wood they didnt put the wood in the room. We also had to ask for towels in the room on the one day as they had been removed. Had we wanted a shower before dinner there would have been no towels. The power went off for a night when there and there was no candle in the room just a paraffin lantern which was broken and hard to light. The lodge also did not have normal water bottles to place in the rooms when the electric blankets were not able to be used. The lodge has a charm about it but it was a very draughty lodge with lots of gaps around door frames and windows and given how cold it was the lodge was still cold inside. There was a very warming fireplace in the main area however the seating was set so far back from it and guests were having to put chairs closer to the fire only to find that the next day the chairs had been removed again away from the fire. Staff did not assist in moving the chairs either. All in all a lot more attention to detail would lift this lodge to another level. Wifi really not great and extremely slow (which is mentioned on the website) and no cell phone signal at all.
