We stayed in one of the lodges for two nights as guests of relations who were staying for a week.The place looks great as you drive towards it but oh dear!The entrance to the lodge had an amazing collection of spider's webs and hundreds of dead insects plus an incredibly dirty velux window.The lodge itself was shabby and the decor so tired it obviously has never had a lick of paint since the 1980s(or whenever it was built).
Our bedroom had two damp patches with some interesting black mould.
The two restaurants are very average and extremely overpriced.The 'Bistro'is accessed via a shabby dark stair complete with torn tartan wallpaper and large holes in the wall!It does not improve as you go inside with damaged walls and chipped ceiling tiles.
Not having stayed at a Macdonalds Resort before we don't know if this is the norm for them but we shall never darken their doors again!
