Having made a reservation for a one night stay for March 10th my husband I arrived at 4.10pm to find all doors locked and the whole place deserted. On the door was a printed notice saying checking in was between 2pm and 9pm and if on arrival reception was closed to ring the bell or phone. We phoned the telephone... More

If you need to stay on the Isle of Portland you are limited if you do not wish to pay over the top. The Lodge is a winner there, but you get what you pay fore. The rooms are clean but the walls are thin. If you get a front room you may as well lay on the road. There... More

Admittedly he showed me to my room but did not offer to open door for me despite being laden with bags. The breakfast staff we plain rude. Do... More

we have just stayed here for 2 nights, the room was clean and check in painless. Breakfast was ok. Free wifi didn't work in our bit of the hotel which was disappointing but as it was the weekend it could not be sorted.

I stayed here for one night with my husband and 5 month old baby. We arrived at around 6pm, there was ample parking, no problems checking in and we were shown to our room. The room was small and basic but clean and comfortable, we had requested a cot which was set up ready for us to use. Nice big... More

Personally shown to our room which was clean, comfortable bed, slept really well, shower was excellent, enough room in cubicle and i am 100 kgs (16 stone!), water pressure and temperature perfect, one of the best i have had. Bedside light did not work, no big problem. Funny sweet smell in corridors but you only walk through so no problem.... More

The foyer smelt of a mixture of air freshener and sick. Staff were near on impossible to find. The room was ok and the bed was comfy but the bathroom was very poor. The breakfast was mediocre at best. I would definitely steer clear of this place it's got nothing going for it whatsoever.
