Firstly our rooms are clearly stated with no air con on our website, only ceiling and stand fans however we are very sorry about that. secondly our gates are normally close after 10pm and only opens when host is aware of late night returns. it is not because you have not paid....

I stayed at Paray Lodge for 7 days in October and thouroughly enjoyed my stay. The room was spacious and clean and the facilities for a self catering establishment were more than adequate. Joana the owner and her team were very friendly and always available to provide advice and assistance if needed. Thankyou. I will certainly come again.
