“nearly but not quite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We stayed for two nights at Boulders in January 2014. In the main the hotel lived up to expectations - our room was comfortable, the pool area was attractive and the setting was quiet. The two drawbacks were dinner and reception. We ate in on the first night (after a long drive from CT) and we were the only guests in the dining room not a nice experience. The receptionist that greeted us on our arrival was sullen and not at all welcoming. On the second day Lydia was on the desk and things improved.

A great place to stay - we had the Deck Rooms. Very clean, tidy and good value for money. The young lady looking after reception was very helpful with local information and attentive with the bar service etc.

Fantastic , friendly, helpfull people. Only 1 problem: I did not see any night /security guard as stipulated on brochure, a woman travelling and sleeping alone, can be dangerous. Will reccommend lodge!

Everything was excellent but special mention must be made of the very, very friendly staff. Special mention must be made of Teresa at reception although it would be unfair to mention her name. It was really an excellent experience but I was just a bit let down due to the Jacuzzi not working

Hi, the stay was really comfortable, the breakfast was good, hosts and staff were friendly, the rooms were very comfortable. Just the wooden pool furniture needs a little bit of attention, the rest was very enjoyable. I enjoyed the spa bath in our room and the massage very much.

We really enjoyed our stay at Boulder's. It is in a great location - close to town and other attractions. The rooms were very comfortable. LeRoux, the manager, was very welcoming and gracious. We weren't able to use the hot tub as the weather wasn't warm enough (apparently not something that can be heated up). The breakfast was delicious!
