We've just come back from a long weekend at Osprey Lodge and overall had a lovely time. The house is very spacious and is in a great position overlooking the lake. The hot tub was used throughout our stay although it's worth noting it cannot be used after 8pm.

The kitchen was big and we found it no problem to work within when we were all preparing our meals. There was plenty of utensils and pans although another set of cups/mugs and a rice drainer would be a useful addition. The fridge freezer was a good size and more than capable of storing all our food for 3 nights.

The bathrooms were fine although there's no shower in the master bedroom en-suite and the shower heads in the other 2 bathrooms were in need of replacement. Everything was clean on arrival.

The additional cost of the on-site Spa was worth it. The pools were great and the sauna and steam room good. It was also fairly quiet but that was probably down to the time of year we visited.

Our guest relations manager Jamie was very approachable and helpful. He met us on arrival and talked us through the property.

While not quite having the WOW factor the property was still great and we all had lovely time staying there.

“So very nearly perfect..... still amazing though!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stayed here end of Feb 2014 for mother in laws 65th birthday.

Upon arrival we were met by Jamie.... extremely nice, polite and friendly man. Gave us all the relevant information and passes etc he couldn't do enough for us.

The lodge was exactly as in the pictures, dare I say even more amazing in the real light! Very spacious, extremely clean throughout, lovely big comfortable beds, lovely bedding. Enough utensils etc for a family of 8. Very impressive and will not disappoint.

Now, before I go on I would just like to say that this lodge is amazing there is just a couple of niggly things that could make it completely perfect.

Make sure you take toilet rolls, there was 1 provided for 3 seperate toilets. There are handwash bottles in all toilets but no handwash inside so take this also. 1 very small bin bag is provided so takes spares. Dont hire the nintendo wii as there is only one game and no batteries provided in any of the controllers. considering you have to pay extra for this I think they should be provided. In agreement with other reviewers there are not enough mirrors. I think 3 in the entire lodge all of which are hung far too high (mother in law couldnt use a mirror whole time we were there as not tall enough!) There is not one full length mirror either. However there are pictures hung everywhere, on every wall..... just everywhere and none of it really matches maybe change a couple for mirrors? Beds are exceptionally comfortable but only one pillow is provided which even when folded in half is still not enough. Yes there were extra pillows in the cupboard but with no pillow cases on so didnt really want to use and in my opinion not enough towels are provided as had to use same ones for hot tub as using an hour later to bath with.

The spa..... The spa looked lovely, treatment was perfect however the pool is swamped with kids which having kids myself can see why they go swimming etc however there should be at least one lane for swimming. Couldnt do one length entire time we were there.

All in all it is a FANTASTIC lodge, Tim and Jamie couldnt do enough for us. If they sort the above out it would just put this lodge into the perfect category its a shame as these are just tiny little cheap things that can be fixed with not alot of fuss. Dont let this put you off at all as it really is beautiful.
