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

It advertises itself as a 'boutique hotel'. (Yeah, and I like corduroy and kaftans too !). Very odd experience. No staff on site, or security, you are texted a code with which to gain entrance before arrival. (Code pointless as hotel is wide open all day (and night). Single female travellers beware.(Actually everyone beware !) Downstairs smelt of gas !... More

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
