Garway Lodge an absolute haven. Welcoming, peaceful, comfortable, extraordinary hospitality, relaxing, easygoing, friendly, incredible value for money. Wish I'd found Garway Lodge 8 years ago, would have stayed there every visit. Very... More

We were given a warm welcome at extremely short notice and received a good, personalised service from the word 'go'. I thought Garway Losge extremely good value for money and I will be returning soon.

I was travelling on business and arrived late. That was no problem for Julia though. She was most welcoming. She offered me cakes and tea on arrival. The room was nice and comfortable and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and I had a good night sleep.
