What an Ab Fab place to go. Very unique. Lovely lakeside location (literally) and every room has a view! Food in The Restaurant was brilliant. Some lovely walks around. The only crib was the hot tub could have been a bit cleaner.

Lovely lovely food, plenty in each course and the food came out very promptly. Atmosphere in the restaurant was also fantastic with every table full. Service at the very end was slightly disappointing when asking for the bill but overall it was a great meal

Two of stayed here and ate at the restaurant. The check in was really good and shown to our room. The room was spacious warm comfortable and a near perfect view. Slept really well after a great meal in the restaurant. The food, service and atomslhere was superb. The wine recommendation and attention in the bar was second to none.

When it comes to creating an experience - Wineport Lodge just knows how. We just keep returning and every time it just gets better. This is a 5 star experience that we equate with Piazza Duomo, Le Calandre and La Pergola - all 3 Star Michelin eateries that we love. The atmosphere, the food and the exquisite service is very...

Was disappointed overall with this place considering the price! Had goats cheese tart starter which was average. The main course of pork was tasteless, tiny and looked like something cooked on a George Foreman. The desert was tasty enough. The service setting and ambience of the place were very good! And I think the majority of the other diners in... More
