Reviewed February 20, 2014

How often do you find a place of such high level of quality for such a reasonable price?

I stayed here for one night with my partner as was running the Baldock Beast the next day. Had originally booked the lodge for the whole weekend (as was Valentine's Day on the Sunday) but due to work commitments had to cut the trip down to the one night on the Saturday. Even with this Sally was very helpful and accommodating so was off to a great start with the service before we even got there.

Received a warm welcome and when we got into our room, it was such high quality. The most comfortable bed, an iPod dock, big tv, sky with all the sports and movie channels, good WiFi speed, great bathroom, brilliant shower in a big bath, and really really clean!

The breakfast was DIY but the options were massive and having to run a half marathon, I certainly filled up. Crackers, cheeses, croissants, cereal, porridge, tea and coffee, water and orange juice, breakfast bars, and biscuits was more than enough.

The big plus about this is you're only 5 minutes car ride out of Baldock and could easily walk if you wanted a few drinks.

I really wouldn't stay anywhere else if in this area and will definitely stay here next year for the race if I enter again.

We have stayed with Sally at Templars lodge 3 times now visiting family and would not dream of even looking for anywhere else. The rooms are warm, modern and comfortable. Bathrooms are great and the whole place is immaculately clean.
Sally also provides an excellent 'do-it-yourself' breakfast with plenty of choice - delicious croissants.
Thank you for looking after us so well.

I have stayed with Sally and her team before and see no reason to go anywhere else. Both rooms have the same modern finish, with Sky TV, docking station, comfy bed and on-suite bath or shower. Set in fantastic grounds, this B&B is a real must if you are visiting the area.

Have stayed here very often - no point in looking elsewhere. Became my 'home from home'.
Self-catering breakfast is fine by me, everything is supplied, and replenished whilst you are out.
Extremely comfortable room, very clean, modern styling. Garden is delightful, and I have seen the local 'black squirrels' there.
Sally is a delight - friendly, efficient, nothing is too much trouble.
Location is quiet, whilst still being convenient for visiting local attractions, and some not so local.
Short walk to Baldock station, trains from there to London and Cambridge.
Rates are very reasonable considering the high standard of accommodation and service, and I would pay any price that Sally asked just to stay there!

Room Tip: There is no choice to be made - both rooms are excellent.

This is the second time we have stayed here first time in room 1 and the second in room 2. there is nothing to choose between them as they are both fantastic. Both rooms are very tastefully decorated with lots of little nice touches that enhance the fantastic stay here. Breakfast is made in your room from various elements in the fridge and cupboard such as Cereal, Croissants, butter, cheese, porridge, Crackers, cereal bars plus usual tea, coffee and Orange juice. What can I say that no one else has said other than if you need somewhere to stay near Baldock then this is the place. sally the owner makes you welcome and is very accommodating with no request a hardship. we will return no doubt

Room Tip: Just go there its great

After staying in most of the local establishments in trhe area over the past year this is by far the best at a very fair price. Sally the landlady is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very modern and clean with Sky TV, fridge,good quality bed and pillows and continental breakfast with fresh milk and orange juice with the added convenience of requesting any preferences.
The rooms are within a lovely large garden and very quiet and only ten minuites walk from town centre...........Highly reccomended

This B&B comprises of two detached, well-appointed, en-suite rooms in the grounds of the owner’s house. The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and modern. The rate is a consistent 50GBP per room per night.

The continental breakfast is provided in a mini-bar form. The food is replenished and room tidied when you are out for the day. The site is a short walk from the Baldock rail station. The hostess Sally is very accommodating and happy to check you in at a time convenient for you. There is free wi-fi available in the rooms.

I would recommend this venue for residents of Baldock who have family or friends coming to visit as it is very convenient to the town and very comfortable for guests.
