Before we stayed at the lodge I was nervous having read some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised, if you want a fancy stay this probably isnt the place for you but the rooms were well cleaned and presentable, which frankly for the price is all you can ask and the breakfast was fantastic, we stayed here as...

Shabby room, stains on carpet and carpet on bathroom floor.....urghh! Beds clean and comfortable and breakfast was fine, but spoilt by poor quality rooms. I could not stay here again. This needs huge overhaul urgently.

Our room had no problems, windows worked fine. The breakfast room was clean and it was help yourself but there was lots there. The food in cafe was... More

Our room was clean and functional but the toilet door had no lock and failed to close properly the one window that opened only had one handle that worked and would not close properly so... More

The lodge looks good from the photographs but it hides the lack of attention to maintenance The public areas are very tired and worn. Hint of the 70s . The room has been updated round the beds but it still has old electrics and to make a cuppa you had to switch the TV off to use the plug Our... More

Used a Living Social voucher for a weekend away with my mum, sister and auntie and was quite disappointed when we drove up to the hotel. We hadn't appreciated it was right next to the A1! We parked round the back and had to walk past a collapsing greenhouse with broken panes, and external peeling paint, so first impressions weren't... More

The photograph on the website is very misleading. This is motel in a service station just off the A1(M). The property, inside and out, looks 'tired' and 'well worn'. The floors throughout creak when walked on and it's in a service station. Don't expect much sleep! The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The shower just about worked.
