I don't need to Write a review, just look at the way he(mike) responds to people that have stayed and given baggys constructive criticism. (Constructive criticism- is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. The purpose of constructive... More

excellent budget (£33) accomodation a very short walk to the north end of the beach which apart from the bunk beds could be confused for a much more expensive hotel / B&B. In the day the properly doubles as a beach cafe, and has a view over the beach. Refurbished by the owner this has been finished to a high... More

Booked last minute here not knowing what to expect. The lodge itself is part of the main house and very clean and tidy. We had the Oyster Double room with ensuite which was idea. Tastefully decorated, gorgeous bathroom and very friendly staff. Made for a great weekend for me and the girlfriend. Make sure you say hello to Norman the... More

We stayed in the double room (Sunset) for a weekend. Room was modern but with nice authentic features. Location was great being 5 minutes from beach and lovely view overlooking the bay. We can't fault the service and the family run atmosphere was inviting. The on site surf school made for a seamless trip. Would recommend to those looking for... More

Baggy Lodge very kindly let our JLR group use the cafe as a base and provided us with yummy food and excellent service all weekend! This really made the weekend as I felt really welcome and extremely well looked after! It was really enjoyable being able to all chill in the cafe playing cards over a hot chocolate and panini...

Double Room was OK for 2-night stay but it faces onto blank wall opposite and was not tidied in any way during our stay. The wet room is badly designed and lighting for mirror quirky/useless. And DIY breakfast was non-existent at 8am - no milk for cereals, no bread for toast, except one mouldy white crust! No one around to... More

Well Thanks for your review Jon b, But not sure what planet you are on! The main window looks across the lane and the sea can be seen left and right. The window you are referring to is just for additional light. I you look down the toilet pan, you can't quite see the sea either. The wet rooms are... More

Myself and a friend stayed at Baggys lodge on the recommendation of another friend who had recently visited and loved it. It certainly didn't disappoint! We stayed in one of the bunk rooms which for the price was a very high standard with ample space, comfy beds and a lovely bathroom. The location itself was perfect for exploring the local... More

I stayed in one of the hostel rooms over the first May bank holiday, and it was exactly what I'd hoped. The room was clean, the bed comfy and I was very impressed with the bathroom, you don't normally get such high standards for a hostel room. The staff were all very friendly and made me feel welcome. I hired... More

It's the best. Perfect location outside Croyde, hot showers and the best surf school on site (Lyndon Wake/Surfing Croyde Bay). Cannot recommend it more. For the price you will not find anything that comes close. Even the cat is class.. I kind of didn't want to write this because it's nice it's so non commercial, but then saw some reviews... More

Only stopped for a breakfast so will only score based on what i paid for. Obviously spent some money on interior & outside space, which has some great views over the bay. Service friendly Cooked breakfast was priced at a reasonable £5.95 - good sausage & bacon although toast would be a welcome addition. Coffee was nice enough but the... More

Thanks for your review ItchyFeetiow, We do offer toast, but it is extra - we have found over the years that this is the most popular way. You are not the first person to mention the cost of our coffee. I drink coffee in London a lot and in my experience we are in the right ball park. Few places... More
