8 of us stayed here on Saturday night. I really don't know what all the bad reviews are about.... I wouldn't go on holiday here but it's a great location if you are needing a night somewhere. Bathrooms were refurbished, red hot water, comfortable bed, great breakfast and nice staff. It was quite dated decor and the curtains were very... More

Stayed here whilst attending a friends birthday party. Road works right outside didn't help with first impressions but, sadly, nothing improved. 1 member of staff doing reception, bar, restaurant, cleaning but, to be fair she was very pleasant. The rooms are a la 60's and in dire need of modernising and deep cleaning. Beds were rock hard and if it... More

My partner and I stayed at The Lodge for a weekend at the start of May. The hotel is in dire need of some TLC, that's for sure. Having driven up from Weymouth, we arrived at 11pm and there was nobody to be seen - my fiancé had to wander around Costa hoping a member of staff would see him... More

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is full of road workers, stinks of sweaty socks and armpits this is the place for you. Me, I would have got a better nights sleep in my car!. Our "executive room" was very tired although it was clean. Staff are friendly and helpful but to refer to it as having... More

During my stay the fire alarm went off twice over night - there were no staff around to reassure guests it was a false alarm - after the 2nd one I phoned reception and suggested they may wish to let guests know everything was ok - they didn't see the need! I hope there's never a real fire! Day staff... More

No longer on the A1 as it was, but now accessible from the upgraded A1(M) exits 50 & 51, the Lodge is a motor hotel at a private 24 hour service area. Convenience is its key, but other features may be less appealing. Nevertheless, it is a useful & functional place to stay on the long main road route North... More

We found our 'executive room' to have comfortable beds, to be warm and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly and efficient. BUT additional cost breakfast was not as good as we have had here on previous occasions - the self service system has been changed to waiter service for the cooked element of the breakfast and it is Not...

Regularly use this hotel when visiting family in bedale . Although now a bit dated there is evidence that money is beginning to be invested in some of the decor . More needs to be be done regarding the service as there was delays on check in and check out as I had to find someone to help each time... More

The lodge is nothing like described. It's at a service station. The pictures posted by the staff do not give true of what the place is like. There is no bar side pool or pool for that matter the pool is at a local leisure centre. They don't have a cocktail bar add advertised on the sign as you to... More

This establishment is ideally located alonside the A1 and is easily found from this main road. It seems fine for a one night stop whilst travelling. There is a good choice of food available as the site has a restaurant with a well-stocked bar, main meals, and snack meals. There is also a Costas Coffee shop on site that serves... More
