My husband and I and two grandchildren (ages 5 and 3) spent four nights at Severn Lodge. The lodge is well maintained and has a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. There are numerous activities for children and adults alike, and the kids clubs are staffed with wonderful teens who were clearly enjoying themselves while caring for their charges. We chose to do most things on our own and the kids only spent a couple of hours one morning at the kids club. My hubby is very active and the kids had a blast jumping in and out of the swimming pool under his watch. The nice part is that if I chose to go on my own with the grandkids, they wouldnt miss out on a thing because of the kids clubs. (I have some health issues and am not as active as my hubby). We also thought the food was very good, particularly dinner. For example- an appetizer of smoked duck breast salad with feta and watermelon, followed by an entree of lamb, garlic potatoes and the best assortment of vegetables I've enjoyed in a long time.... Wow! Now come a couple of caveats. Check in is between 3:00 -4:00 pm, but unlike many resorts, if you arrive early you arent able to leave your luggage and explore the resort. ( We asked and were told we could not. ) Our room was clean and kind of quaint and pretty, but it was quite small. The twin bed and pullout couch were very uncomfortable. We also found the cost to be quite expensive (well, for us anyway, perhaps others won't think so). The total bill for four nights, with meals, was approximately $2200.00, and that was a special with kids at half price.
