Stayed for 4 nights here, we really enjoyed it, the rooms are spacious with 2 armchairs, comfortabl beds, bathrobes provided. The room has a fridge and microwave with Tea and Coffee supplied and a couple of Kit Katz each day.

I couldn't have stayed at a more graceful lodge or with more gracious hosts. Being family owned, it is reminiscent of certain hospitality that has been largely forgotten in the US. And it comes across quite naturally. Plus the food is comforting and hearty.

What an excellent stay we had here and a very convenient location for Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula. I could not think of anything in our room that had not been thought of, even down to the provision of talcum powder and hair spray in the bathroom. A large bedroom with plenty of room to accommodate two, very comfortable, armchairs...

Really lovely place to stay. The people and rooms are great, service and food in the restaurant very good. In addition nice touch to have a DVD player with many films to borrow - always nice to unwind after a long day. The location is good but being next to a busy road walkers need to be wary. The rooms...

Booked two nights here via a late booking web site. The web site did state continental breakfast, which was fine. When we arrived booking in was easy and efficient. We were told our breakfast was in our room. Room was modern, clean, spacious and well decorated. The continental breakfast consisted of two pre wrapped chocolate crossiants, an apple and an...

Outstanding room and outstanding food. Greeted with a friendly and welcoming smile, nothing to much trouble. Do plan on booking again. The only issue was the smoke shelter if it rains it drips through the roof over you.

Having arrived rather late in the evening we were greeted warmly by Alison and asked if we needed something to eat - we did, so ordered a Pizza which was freshly made and delivered to our room. Nice start! The rooms are 'motel' style but more plush than you would expect for this type of single storey layout. Parking is...

Crewe, United Kingdom

I was actually at the Estuary Lodge on business when your dog attacked the chickens, I heard the noise and I unfortunately saw the aftermath. If you read these other reviews here you will see that they are all 5* reviews including my own and even you have given 3*s, why would you even give 1* if you were treated so badly?

The chickens that your dog killed May not lay golden eggs but they were a rare breed and had come from Shrewsbury, not that it is relevant as it doesn't matter what breed the animals are or where they come from, what matters is you did not have full control of your dog and it actually killed 4 or 5 of the family's pets! THAT is unforgivable! Please ask your self some questions. 1. Who was responsible for the dog that killed the family's pets? 2. Not that it would make any difference but did you even offer an apology? I didn't hear one as you were too busy wanting to explain your actions. 3. Look at the other reviews here. Do you think your review is fair? 4. What would you do if somebody else's animal killed your pets. Your animal now has the taste for blood. The family at Estuary lodge has a small grandchild that is a toddler. After your dog killed their pets, there was no way that they would/could let you or your animals stay. Nobody in their right mind would. Can you not see that? Why would they refund you after you allowed your dog to carry out such an act. You're actually lucky that they did not report you. After being there that day and witnessing how upset the Williams family were and listening to you offer to pay for the chickens as I drank my coffee, I cannot believe that you have the cheek to leave this review. If you had any conscience you would delete it!
