“Superb place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I have stayed in this establishment many a time during my trips to loughborough and I do not have one bad word to stay about it. The food is lovely, the beds are comfy, the rooms are clean and most importantly it has a well stocked bar for my much needed drink before heading off to my slumber! Many thanks to Mel for the wonderful service she provides.

Though we arrived a few hours early, our host was unflustered and all smiles. We were shown to a large room at the front with a four-poster. Not a fan of them by looks, but it was extremely comfortable. A decent enough breakfast, but we thought the hour slot allotted was a bit early and tight for a leisurely Sunday morning. Over all, all mod cons as you'd expect, but more of a personal touch from the really friendly staff.

Dear Coxychap, many thanks for taking the time to review you stay at the Lodge. We are pleased you appreciated the free upgrade to our Four Poster room. We have always had the same allocated time for breakfast, this enables us to allow guests to check in from 10.30am. Many thanks once again and we look forward to welcoming you to the Lodge should you ever be in the area again. Melanie

Stayed at the charnwood after our daughters graduation ceremony staff were very helpful and polite
Hotel was clean and comfortable with a great little bar to relax. It was a bonus being able to check in at 12 noon after a long journey and get ready for the Graduation.

Dear Julie W, thank you so much for taking the time out to review the Lodge. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated our bar. Graduation is always a busy period and myself and staff look forward to it. We always like to offer an earlier check in for the same reason you mentioned in your review. Many thanks once again :) Melanie

We booked the Lodge for relaxation and a trip on the local Great Central Railway. We found the location spot on, with the staff very helpful. The breakfast is also recommended, very healthy portions with extra on hand if you need it!

Dear Andrew, Many thanks for taking the time to review the Lodge. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found the location of the Lodge convenient to the Railway. Even I can manage the five min walk to the station. We like to offer a wide range of breakfast products as not everyone wants to have a Full English every morning. Many thanks once again and we look forward to welcoming you to the Lodge should you ever be in the area again. Melanie

A faultless stay thank you and the location was perfect for the Great Central Railway. Family run with a lovely friendly atmosphere and well presented throughout. The room was very comfortable including the bed with pleasant views over the well maintained front garden. Breakfast was fresh and tasty and overall nothing was too much trouble and we will definitely return again.

Dear Cheetham, I was really pleased to read your review - it shows we are doing what we set out to do at the Lodge. We all work hard at the Lodge to keep the high standards my parents put in place, from our Chambermaids to our gardener. The location to the Steam railway is as you said a 5 min walk and we find our guests find it easier to leave their car in our car park and walk the short distance. So many thanks once again and would love to welcome you back should you be in the area again. Melanie

This family run guest house/private hotel was clean, welcoming, and evening meals were available at what seemed to be the drop of a hat. The dining room was lovely and light and the furnishings of good quality. Breakfast was hearty with plenty to choose from, tasty and well cooked. The room we had was well equipped with an en-suite bathroom and comfortable clean bed. All in all a very good place to lay one's head. The charges were very reasonable too!!!!!

Really very good. If you're thinking of running a B&B and you want to do it really well, go to Charnwood lodge for a night or two and let them show you how it's done. My room was spotless and comfortable, breakfast had everything I needed and the staff are lovely.

Dear Kayak School, Wow, what a great review. I printed yours off and showed my mum (boss) and asked for a pay rise hee hee. It is lovely to hear such positive comments and after showing all members of staff the reviews it makes all the hard work worth it. Mum and dad ran the business for over 12 years and put systems in place in order for me to be able to run it and maintain the high standards we would all expect our selves when staying in a guest house/hotel. So many thanks once again :) Melanie :)
