We stayed in a Moors lodge for 3 nights at the end of May and everything was perfect. On booking the lodge over the 'phone the staff were friendly and helpful and more importantly, everything was as described and ready for us at check in late afternoon.
The views from all the lodges are amazing and even though we had awful weather we didn't mind. The log burning stove was fantastic and you can help yourselves to more logs from the logstore nearby. Our 6 year old loved doing that!
The pull down bed in the lounge was confortable and the main bedroom upstairs was lovely. Ok there is only one bathroom and it's downstairs and ordinarily we would mind this, but not with these views and the fire.
The kitchenette has everything you need except champagne glasses which we took with us. Even if you forget your own bar supplies (there is plenty of room in the fridge), the hotel bar is reasonably priced.
And just because you have a kitchenette it doesn't mean you have to actually cook. The restaurant in the hotel was very good, particulary for breakfast. We enjoyed DBB and the menu changed each night.
Some might say the hotel's a little on the old fashioned side, but it's a seaside hotel in the middle of nowhere and that's all part of it's charm. The lodges are bang up to date with free wifi which worked fine.
I think it unlikely we would have enjoyed staying in the hotel as much though. Having said that, the last minute DBB offers are very tempting and the lodges not often available.
I'm regretting writing this review already as we'll be waiting even longer before there'll be a Moors lodge available again!
