It was an inexpensive place to stay, however it was very poor value for money. We received a very warm welcome and then it went downhill, the first floor corridor, on which the bedrooms are located, stinks of cigarette smoke. The bedroom was ridiculously small and only one pillow each, a bare lightbulb and a general grubbiness. There was an... More

Went to Monnington Lodge for lunch, Cousin Anthony booked a table of 6. Arrived and was surprised how quiet it was and taking in the... More

Just come back from spending 2 nights at Monnington Lodge. New manager and all his staff were very friendly and helpful. Food good. This lodge is being redecorated. We would stay again if in the area. Very good value for money. If you are in a room above bar it can be a bit noisy until bar closes. We were... More

Firstly it took us ages to find this hotel so the directions weren't very well explained. Then we were advised that the restaurant wasn't really open but would consider throwing something together for us if we really needed it. The room was the smallest I've been in throughout our travels. and really did need to be freshened up. The bed... More

The bar and restaurant were closed they had no gas and were cooking with limited facilities. We were concerned about breakfast. We were told no one was... More

Location difficult to find being on a housing estate. The only plus was that room was clean, we arrived at 7.45pm, shown to our room which was really cold and sounded like we were walking in to a disco, our room was directly above it, the noise was terrible, no point having TV on could not hear it 🙉🙉 when...

The room was very small for a double, a single would have been better.and the floor boards creaked like mad, very annoying !!!! The bathroom still has a shower curtain the disdain of a traveller im sure!! And the grout was dirty and mouldy.... More

Stayed at the lodge bank holiday weekend and although the owners were semi friendly that's the only nice thing I can say...the room we stayed in was damp, the bed was on wheels so if you leaned on it you went crashing into the wall but the worst thing was the bathroom if you run a tap or flushed the...
