“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

I was travelling on business and arrived late. That was no problem for Julia though.
She was most welcoming. She offered me cakes and tea on arrival. The room was nice and comfortable and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and I had a good night sleep.

Very friendly welcome with coffee, cakes and biscuits and a tray for my muddy boots. Room had everything I needed, comfy bed, TV, en-suite - it was warm and quiet.
Breakfast was perfect and set me up for another day walking - and Julia insisted I take some fruit to keep me going till lunch.
Fantastic value for money and would definitely stay again.

My partner and I stayed for three nights in August and had an amazing stay. I slept like a baby & being pregnant I could have taken their bed home. The staff were really helpful and friendly and would love to return next summer. Thank you for a lovely stay. Lisa & Luke.

I chose to stay at Garway Lodge as a result of positive reviews from previous guests, they weren't exaggerated either! I was warmly welcomed by Julia and Paul with tea and biscuits before being shown to my room. I opted for a single occupancy room being a solo traveller which was both reasonably priced and very well furnished. Breakfast was excellent. Overall a very relaxing stay.

We have recently stayed at the Garway Lodge and had a lovely holiday. Julia and Paul made us very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was great and our room was spotless. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thanks again

Thank you for leaving us a lovely review, we do appreciate the time this takes. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable, the beds in room 3 are new, and we will be redecorating this room soon. We try to make our guests as comfortable as possible, and put in place things we would like, for example the maps for guests who do not know the area.
