Our 4 day break was as we expected, quiet & very relaxing. We had an Elite 1 which was very nice but with a few cleaning issues. Of course we reported these to the owner Peter the next day who stated he would come & have a look, the only problem was that we had gone out to Eye by the time he had called us back. Peter stated that he was going to Diss so would call in on his way back.We think Peter must have got caught up in Diss as he returned to us the next day but we did not mind as the problem was not urgent. We pointed out the cleaning issues which were stains on the sofa, stained carpet, dust on mirror,skirting,doors,dried flowers arrangement's,kitchen blinds, bathroom blinds, dirt around toilet bowl,dust & cobwebs in bathroom, toothbrush holder dirty, shower head held on with cable ties, door on fridge freezer broken ,all of these things did not spoil our break because we would not let them plus its not the end of the world but!!! could have been easily avoided. Peter was rather shocked to see all these issues & wondered what he was paying his cleaners to do. Peter apologized & stated that all of these points have been taken on board & he will be making sure that this does not happen again although he trusted his cleaners but will now be checking the Lodges in future. After all this we would stay again & hope Peter keeps to his word!!! but do not go here if you are expecting a lively stay as it is total peace, quiet, and silence (apart from farm stuff & cars that do not stick to the speed limit & wiz past as if on a motor way).Thanx Peter for a quiet stay.
