Oh dear. Why do they make the same mistake again. Booked an outside room and rang the lodge to confirm before booking - it was even written in the lodge diary - must have an outside room - and, for the second time were refused one. This was a complimentary stay for a poor visit last time. How do places like this stay open when they cannot do what they promise and what customers ask? I have to say Andy was brilliant but even he couldn't get us into an outside room.
Poor security with security door to the rooms not locked. Room spacious but in need of refurbishment. Bathroom small, shower only a trickle and placed so you could not stand under it, taps not identified hot or cold, shower gel dispenser on wall ripped into body when in shower, only one bedside light.
Food only just OK - over cooked chips (they were actually potato wedges, tough steak, minute portion of mushy peas, poor batter on fish.
