“Excellent family holiday”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just returned home from a really relaxing family holiday at Niagra lodge.
The lodge itself is beautiful, very roomy and comfortable and well equipped.
Although the lodge was very private, it was situated up a small hill which was a bit of a problem getting my elderly mum up and down in her wheelchair. It was perfect for our dogs as the decking is massive and secure and they loved the walks around the ponds (not lakes).
Which brings me onto the fishing. I really enjoyed it and caught a few including a couple of stunners but course fishing for trout! It was hard work but had a laugh with about it with everyone else who brought course tackle. The guy from reception was very helpful when it came to fishing tips.
It was a bit gutting from the kids point of view that wifi is only available in reception and not in the house but most nights they could get it on the front porch or walk down to reception.
The park itself is fab for kids from a safety point of view. My niece and nephew met half a dozen other kids and they played out on the park and you knew they were fine. They loved the indoor swimming pool.
Llangollen is a short drive away (car park is hammered on Tuesday because they use it for the market). We booked a canel trip over the aquaduct which was ace but parking was tricky because of the market. Well worth doing though.
Robbie, the owner of the lodge is a little star and nothing is to much trouble.
The whole week was very enjoyable and if they stocked the ponds with carp, silvers, tench etc, I'd be back like a shot and that's the main reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5.

“Highly recommended lodge”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The Lodge is very well presented and clean with all the mod cons you would need for a weekend getaway. Location is great, and owner Rob was really helpful/informative giving advice on where to eat. Llangollen is a short drive away. Only suggestion would be to have a shower in the double ensuite. We will be back!

“Fabulous weekend getaway!”
Reviewed March 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed here in March with 8 friends on a weekend ladies getaway and had an amazing time. We were very lucky with the weather which always helps, the site is very well kept and was quiet, I think even when full it wouldn't seem busy as there aren't very many lodges. Some of us used the pool which is small but clean, only downside is there are no changing rooms. The lodge was lovely, clean and we'll kept and Robbie the owner was very helpful and was happy to answer any questions, even contacting us whilst we were there to ask if there was anything we needed. It's a very short drive into Llangollen which is very pretty and we ate at The Corn Mill on the owners recommendation which was really good. Parking is limited so a taxi may be a good option. Will definitely go back with my kids as they would love it. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is little things like there were only 4 wine glasses and 6 dining chairs and there was no shower in the 2nd en suite but they're only really small things that could be improved on.

Group of 8, all had a fantastic stay. Lodge and location was great, and owner Robbie was really helpful/informative throughout. Only issue I had was the initial booking but that seemed to be a problem on the website, which was solved after contacting Robbie. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

“Great place to stay”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Niagara lodge at the end of January with my brother and sister with their respective families. Before we arrived I spoke to Robbie the owner who was extremely helpful with respect to the lodge and Llangollen. The lodge was exactly as I had hoped and we had a lovely weekend and I am sure it won't be the last time we stay there. My only comment would be that a 'Welcome book' would be beneficial containing information about the heating and maybe routes for local walks, food etc.
Thanks for a great stay.

“A quiet spot for a family break”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We wanted somewhere to stay in North Wales where we could relax with our relatives who had come to stay from overseas. The owner had given us some information to get us started but an information pack in the lodge would have given us more details. The lodge was clean and had everything we needed. It was well located and we liked the woodland setting.
We didn't use the pool or other site facilities.

Thank you. I prefer to help by talking to guests to listen to there requirements and learning how best to inform them personally, maybe a booklet would be a good idea for some people as a back up thanks again

“Fantastic holiday lodge on a great site.”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We are just back from 5 days at Niagra Lodge. The lodge itself is excellent and immediately felt relaxed and at home.
The kitchen is well equipped and everything was in good working order. The bedrooms were all very clean and very comfortable.

The site itself, Penvale Lake, was fantastic. The staff we came across were very friendly but everything was very low key which we like. The pool was a great size and my kids had it to themselves fairly frequently during our stay. My kids enjoyed fishing in the lake and just 'playing out', they took walkie talkies which were great for staying in touch with them when they were off playing, as my mobile signal was very patchy. There was free wifi at the main office which was really useful.

The owner, Robbie, was very helpful.
