“Great Location, Comfortable Chalet and Lovely Holiday Park”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The booking process was simple and the owner quick to respond to my communications.

On arrival we found a clean, warm chalet with lots of useful facilities. We even had to turn down the heating, as the mild weather combined with the efficient heating made the place too warm!

All the beds were comfortable and everybody slept well. We had everything that we needed to cook with and had a lovely stay.

Our little one enjoyed the parks playground, we found the staff helpful and friendly and we also loved the games room.

As for the location, it is near perfect. There are seven stunning beaches within 15 minutes drive and the local town has everything you could need from a quality pub, a decent pastie shop, a grocery store and some great takeaways.

“Spot-on, home-from-home, would stay there again”

We had a fab week in Mario's Lodge. There was 2 loo's (very handy with kids!) The fire in the living room kept us cosy, we didn't need the central heating on. All of the bedrooms were a good size with excellent storage (better than caravans offer).
On a clear day, the views of Bodmin were lush from the dining room and the balcony.

I can highly recommend this lodge as a quality, family home. It's based just on the edge of St. Merryn so you're not far from any of the '7 bays for 7 days'. Love this part of Cornwall and haven't been anywhere else for the last 22 years. I just wish that we could have stayed for a 2nd week!

“Excellent home from home in beautiful setting”

A beautiful lodge, with by far the best views of any other lodge on the site. Oustanding beauty of Bodmin Moor right on your doorstep and minutes away from 7 beautiful bays and fabulous country pubs / restaurants.
This lodge is a rel home from home, with every comfort you could need. It was clean, well kept, nice comfortable beds and nothing to claim about at all.
I would definitely recommend this and can't believe what great value for money it is.

We have just had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Mario's Lodge. The position of the lodge, all beds have had new mattress's on, which made for a very comfortable nights sleep, the views, the park for the children and the short distance to some beautiful beaches made our holiday really enjoyable. We could not fault anything. The children spent every day apart from one in the sea, catching the waves. Will definitely be booking again.

“Very cosy and homely.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Great location for visiting Cornwall's great tourist areas. Perfect for people that want a bit of home comfort after days out. Very cosy and homely. Two good showers were very welcome with a party of five all trying to get ready at the same time. The park has very basic amenities; but this was not a problem as we were only using the lodge as a base.
