“pothole approach to lodge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Whilst the owners were very nice the situation of the rental was not. It was parallel with the motorway so it was noisy. The approach was full of potholes extending for several hundred yards. The accommodation was above the stables so the noise of the horses hooves on the concrete was incessant. The donkeys started braying at 3.30 a.m. It was just a cacophony of different sounds.

To access your room was up a flight of external concrete steps. My husband has arthritis so this was not for the disabled.

It is convenient for The Belfry that is why we chose it but we should have researched it first.

I brought my daughter here for a riding break, and we had a wonderful time staying above the stables. The room was pretty and clean, and the breakfast was lovely - a massive platter of toast, cereal and fruit brought to our room at the time we requested. Yes it's down a long track, but it was easy enough to find and felt as though we were well and truly off the beaten track! And yes it's near the motorway, but no trouble sleeping after a long day in the saddle. Not for you if you don't lik animals, but if you want to stay somewhere quirky and with plenty of character, then this is the one.

Lovely accommodation, wonderful breakfast brought to room, friendly and caring staff. Faultless! I would highly recommend the whole experience of pony trekking and accommodation on site. My friend and our two children aged eight and nine will be returning without doubt. Cannot recommend highly enough!

My wife and daughter were visiting the NEC for Crufts and I searched for a reasonably priced hotel local to the Exhibition for them to stay. When I found E-or Lodge originally it was amusing as well as being very reasonably priced. It turned out to be an inspired decision as the owners are very friendly, the rooms extremely comfortable and well furnished. There are only a couple of rooms as the hotel is part of a stables and donkey sanctuary. The place is absolutely delightful and they have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: There aren't that many to choose from but if ours was anything to go by they are all excellent!

I stayed here when i went to Crufts and apart from the road leading to the lodge which cannot be overlooked unfortunately, this is a great place to stay, especially if you like to wake up to the sound of donkeys which is quite nice. The rooms are really well decorated and stocked with plenty of refreshments. Good shower too. The bed was lovely and comfortable but because the heating was left on through the night meaning i had to open the window because of the heat i didnt get the best sleep as it is situated right next to the M42 (really handy for NEC). Breakfast was very tasty and fresh but it would have been nice to have an info sheet in the room explaining that your breakfast is brought to your room and what time (lovely touch to have breakfast in bed). We arrived about 8pm and there was no-one to be found anywhere so i was so pleased i had called in on my way to the NEC on the morning and had my room "pointed out" to me so i made an educated guess and found my room on the second attempt. I realise this sounds slightly scathing but i dont mean it to be as this is a lovely clean, handy and unique place to stay and fabulous value for money.

Loved our stay in the E- or lodge, we were made to feel at home from the start...breakfast in bed which consisted of toast crumpets fresh orange juice, cereals melon and strawberries.*****The rooms are nice and comfortable and clean with nice veiws from your window looking out onto the stables. It's a great place to stay if you want a horse riding for the weekend.

We stayed here for an Expo at the NEC in Feb,journey time could take up to 40mins depending on traffic in mornings, but accommodation was warm and friendly and a lovely breakfast served in your room each morning , access was slightly tricky in our old Renault Clio , overall very good value for money , nice stay , thanks
