Just returned from a two-night stay at East Lodge. Although it is conveniently placed on the A6 it is set well back from the road in its own extensive grounds, so we were not troubled at all by traffic noise. Our room (executive) was spacious and had a very large, well equipped bathroom with roll-top bath and walk-in shower. Our view was overlooking the carpark with fields beyond.
On our first evening (a Sunday) we dined alone in the restaurant and enjoyed a superb meal and were pleased that the wine list was reasonable value. Wines are also available by the glass. On the second night the menu was unchanged, which could be a problem on a longer stay, the food however was equally good, the chef has real talent, (the hotel has just been awarded a third AA Rosette). This evening other guests had arrived and the restaurant was quite busy, but the service was just as efficient.
Breakfast was very good, both the buffet with fresh fruit and the cooked menu. The staff were excellent, cheerful and professional and made our stay very pleasant indeed - we would not hesitate to stay here again.
