There is just so much wrong with the Lodge 'Boutique Hotel' it is difficult to know where to begin! On arrival in Malborough it is difficult to locate and having found it, the car park is small and extremely difficult to access. Things did not bode well when we met another guest in the car park who described it as... More

Disappointing - the atmosphere is like the Marie Celeste. There are no staff on site and security is lax. Room facilities are adequate, but decoration very tired. Cleanliness throughout is poor. It needs complete refurbishment and it could be a goldmine. Such a pity, as the location is good - in a quiet village and close to lovely beaches.

This "hotel" is a short drive from Salcombe so location is good. We stayed 2 nights and wished we hadn't bothered. The standard of cleanliness was appalling. Cobwebs, grotty carpets were just a few of our gripes. An air of abandonment filled the place. Patio doors were locked to our room and no key could be found. Tired furniture, badly... More

This is an ex-hotel - apparently the owner is trying to sell the property which we were unaware of. We echo the negative comments made by others. This was just a room for the night - no staff - Chery who was friendly but doesn't appear to live there. Groundfloor room we had was noisy due to constant traffic going... More

Having read other reviews it seems that other guests might have been put off by the lack of staff and no reception. You get sent all of the information you need to get in, and find your room, by email, so there is no problem. It is a bit like self catering without a kitchen - clean rooms, very peaceful,... More

I booked 2 nights at this "hotel" , but only stayed the 1. It is more like a hostel than a hotel,no staff,no keys to get in. The room was very basic, blinds didn't work in the window,the window was broken and wouldn't close, there was signs of a previous leak on the bedroom ceiling, paint peeling off walls in... More

We can only think that previous viisitors to the Lodge were used to staying at the Ritz. We stayed there on 18th May and found it to be a very enjoyable experience. Our room was comfortable clean and warm. We had plenty of hot water. The bed had plenty of pillows which meant we had a good nights sleep .The... More

I have to say I would rather sleep in my car than here. Room keys left on the counter with a scrappy note to say which the room was. The "hotel" was completely deserted, soulless and smelt musty. No breakfast on offer. The bedroom smelt very strongly of drains, so bad it made my throat sore even after only a... More

We were booked in for 2 nights but after seeing the room and expected to pay £85 per night we couldn't stay there any more than 20 mins and had to find alternative accommodation. There were cobwebs everywhere, the towels were dirty, window frames were bent and could not be closed, tea/coffee making facilities dirty, damp and cracks on the... More
