Booked a 2 night DBB on secret escapes which turned out to be excellent value. Surprisingly the hotel website doesn't give much detail on rooms but we took a chance and booked a standard. Compact but adequate, and large enough for 2 armchairs. The television signal was shaky, but we didn't mind that. The room was recently refurbished and had a great view from the back of the hotel across to the falls.
The restaurant is excellent with superb food excellently presented. It was busy but the service was inmpressive - we never waited or had to ask for anything. Ordering is well organised - you sit down in the bar with a menu and a dish of canapes, make your choice and wait with a drink until the food is ready. Done with the minimum of fuss and maximum of comfort.
The staff are the best part. most (not all) are east European but all are very well trained, friendly and happy to offer advice and nothing was too much of a problem. There are also enough people to make sure that you never need to wait - a mark of this was on our arrival. My wife waited in the lobby while I parked the car across the road, and in the few minutes that took three staff memebers had approached her to ask if there was anything they could help with. Simply excellent!
Lodore Falls is highly recommended - we'll be back.
