We have just returned from a 3 night stay in one of your lodges. On driving up to them we could see they were in dire need of repair on the outside. They all needed painting and most were black and mouldy including ours. They were fairly modern inside and we were happy but throughout the weekend we noticed alot of things wrong. Two of balconies wouldn't open and the rooms were fairy stuffy as the windows would only open so far. There were lamps missing from the bedrooms and a broken light over our bed. Our duvet cover was ripped on both sides and also the one in one of the spare bedrooms. There were 3 shelves missing in the fridge and no dust pan and brush. Outside on our patio there were cigarette butts everywhere and we have 2 small children. I would advise anyone going to stay here during the summer to bring some sheets or a light duvet as the duvet were heavy winter duvets and way too warm and no sheets available. Also very limited wi if unless you're hanging out of the window. There was also a constant motor noise going through the house all night, a constant buzzing and when I spoke to other people they heard the same noise all night, it was like a washing machine. So bring some ear plugs. Also be aware that this castle and lodges are in receivership hence the hesitation to do some repairs and it wasn't just our lodge that had the faults.
