I should have read the Reviews on trip adviser, will in future. Things didn't seem right from the start when booking our weekend break the manageress was not prepared to take a booking for a family room with only two people, I explained that I like space, but she thought I was selfish when this room should be left for...

I had chosen the hotel through our corporate system, and although wasn't expecting much, I did rather expect something that more akin to hotel than Guest house. Even a guest house would have been considerably better than this sham. Turning and parking in car park was difficult, I have a wide and longish car with not a lot of turning... More

We booked the Lodge Hotel in order to be close to a wedding we were attending in nearby Kingsbridge. Unfortunately, we were unable to book-in prior to the event due to unexpected traffic delays. However, as we were not planning on being late, we were not overly concerned about our later than planned arrival. Having left our car in town,... More

We booked to stay here to go to a friends wedding in the nearby thurlstone hotel, the only reason for picking the Lodge was because it was the only place nearby for under £70 a night! I was worried about going and even thought about cancelling after reading some of the reviews on here but I was pleasantly surprised. I... More

Arrived at hotel at 3:45 pm there was no staff to meet and greet. After shouting for assistance we noticed keys for room on the reception counter sitting on a card with our name on. We put cases in room and off we went exploring. We returned at 11:45pm only to find carpark was full. Had to park car about... More

Stayed here for one night to be near soar mill cove with our 3 year old. Paid £75 plus another ten to cover a DIY breakfast for one adult and child. Bathroom a bit dated with dodgy shower which almost boiled me alive and taps that did not turn off properly. Light over sink not working. Strange to have no... More

No atmosphere. Only spoke to one other guest outside in the car park - who were not happy with their stay. The bedding, towels and room were clean but no one made the bed or emptied the bin. We stayed 4 nights and on the second night a pile of clean towels, bin bag etc were left outside out door... More

Booked for a wedding nearby; quite unprepared for lack of staff (didn't read reviews thoroughly enough!). The response to phone calls was quick, both to sort out problems and provide an iron; when the manager was around she was pleasant and helpful. Bed linen etc very clean but plumbing/electrical in need of tlc. In retrospect security potentially a major problem... More

All in all, a rather unusual stay. We did not see anyone from the hotel throughout our stay which felt rather strange and unnerving at times especially at night. The hotel and room was fine although the flush in the toilet was rather slow to work. Not sure that we would ever return to this hotel.
