8 friends and I stayed in the Lodge Hotel as our Christmas night away on 21st December and not one of us could fault anything about it.

The friendliness of all staff, accommodation, food (in Elliots Bistro and breakfast), entertainment (Memphis Roadshow) and value for money were all excellent.

We are already planning on doing the same this year at Christmas but hopefully if an opportunity arises we will be there sooner.

Great location, about a one mile walk into the town for shops etc.
Super staff and a great selection of food on the menus.
Great place to stay for convenience to the north coast.
A large place so you can remain anonymous if you wish.

Very surprised by both the standard of the accommodation and the food. Very clean room, surprisingly quiet given it's proximity to the road and great breakfast. As good as hotels in the area which are charging twice as much. We will definitely be back.

Having attended many functions in the Lodge over the past 10 years and having great meals at the vast majority of them, I believe that the standards have dropped some what over the past few visits. A couple of the issues I had were over charging for dinners, but having attended a function for an xmas dinner on Friday past, I think that the food has dropped in quality. I was given a turkey , ham and stuffing portion that you would serve up to a child, not an adult.
The lodge gets good money for these meals and should serve appropriate portions, not the 3rd grade sizes that catering firms can supply if requested.

Thankyou for your comments regarding our portions, however I hope you can appreciate that customer appetites vary and what one person feels is adequate another may feel it is not.
It is unfortunate that this was not brought to the attention of our management team on duty that night as it could have been rectified there and then as our chefs would have been more than happy to provide you with extra helpings. Perhaps in the future matters like this could be mentioned to our staff, which will give us the opportunity to amend on the night, rather than having our guests leave unhappy. May we take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Xmas and a Prosperous New Year.

We took the chance of a first trip to this hotel last week by way of a voucher. PLeasant person at reception took our telephone booking, and this turned out to be a perfect example of the hotel itself. When we arrived, we were greeted with a friendliness that really made us feel at home. We were absolutely delighted with our huge, modern room with beautiful ensuite. Every member of staff we came across in the hotel was extremely friendly, and always had time to discuss whatever it was that you needed, and made sure it happened. Dinner and a cocktail (a departure for us!) was very good, in Elliots bistro. Breakfast the next day would be our only wee gripe, at 9.15 am, the cooked breakfast in the buffet area seemed tired and unappealing, but the pastries and fruit were excellent, and the restaurant itself beautiful. Taken as a whole, we loved our stay, and are already planning our next stay there!

Room Tip: All the rooms including ours, when room doors were left open, looked equally good.
