When we arrived we found the lodge to be well presented and clean. After going out for dinner that evening, however, we discovered that the bathroom light did not work. This was reported to Reception on Monday morning, but it was still not working when we left. This was a minor hiccup as we found a way round this by using our relaxation candle and the "hall way" light.
We ate a couple of times a in the Hardy Restaurant, and the food was good, and the staff friendly, helpful and cheerful.
Overall, we found the lodge to be a great base for exploring this area of Dorset and the setting peaceful and calming. Also the visits by local wildlife cheered us up too.
