“Wedding & Overnight Stay - September 2006”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I have been meaning to leave a review for this excellent place for many months, if not years. I hope that Mike & Julie will forgive the length of time it has taken me to leave a review………

Although late, my review & praise is certainly well deserved.

My wife and I decided to get married here in September 2006. It is local to our home and is intimate enough to have approximately 20-25 guests for a civil ceremony and a meal after. We met with Julie a few times in the lead up to our wedding day.

From the moment we decided to proceed, we were treated so well. All our concerns and questions were dealt with so professionally by Mike & Julie and, suffice to say, the day went so well. Our every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. All our guests commented on the lovely “secret garden” and how tasty the food was. We stayed overnight in one of the rooms overlooking the garden & it was fantastic. Breakfast the next morning was a delight.

We have returned to the West Lodge on one of our Anniversaries and were met by Julie who was happy for us to sit and have a coffee and reminisce.

To summarise, if you are looking for a wedding venue which is intimate and for immediate family & friends, this is a fantastic place. Very reasonably priced and the attention to detail is first class. They truly know the meaning of “treat a customer how you would like to be treated” !

As mentioned, I can only apologise for the length of time taken to review this place but felt that now was better late than never.

The room was clean and comfortable and we had a lovely stay and would definitely come back.
Fab cooked breakfast in delightful surroundings. The gaden was beautiful and very tranquil with garden furniture where you could sit and read the Sunday papers or have a coffee.

Room Tip: Garden rooms very quiet.

From the first phone call to book and explain our requirements, the service was first class. Our rooms were light, bright, clean with thoughtful extras. Particularly handy was the 4 gang socket to charge everything! Food excellent with fresh berries at breakfast and the everything else from local suppliers. We will definitely try to stay there again

Have just returned from a three night stay, We were made very welcome, the rooms were perfect, beautifully dressed, clean and warm.
Breakfast and evening meal served in delightful surroundings, the food was beautifully presented, cooked to a high standard, local and delicious. All in all a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend West Lodge and I look forward to repeating the experience in the not too distant future.

We stayed as friend was having birthday party in Anthony hall which is stone throw away so perfect location. Welcome and general helpfulness if the owners can't be beaten. We had 4month baby with us so one issue we had was that the main bed was SO creaky that it woke the baby when we moved. For the cost of £85 I would have liked a more sturdy feeling bed.

Breakfast was excellent and even kept warm for me when I had to leave the dinning room due to baby crying. Bacon they use is best hubby or I have ever eaten.

Have just returned from enjoying a few days break at this hotel. The welcome was very friendly, room comfortable with every amenity, overlooking garden. Breakfast all home produced and delicious, did not have the chance to enjoy their evening meal, but am sure it would be up to their usual standard. Would stay again if in the area and can recommend it wholeheartedly. BrendaW
