We are a family of 3 generations , stayed here w/c 14/ 07, and loved it!
The booking process was so easy and any queries were dealt with promptly.
The lodge was so easy to find too, no map reading arguments this time, we got there early and asked if we could park up until we could go into the lodge, and the famous George was so helpful and friendly, giving us directions to different places while we waited.
The lodge was clean and spacious, we all loved it, and it was , literally, minutes from the sea. We had 2 minor issues with it -1 was that it was a 6 berth rental and yet there were only 4 dining chairs and 4 patio chairs. 2 One part of the garden is completely open with no privacy, and one evening we had a drunken intruder who wanted the toilet, it was an uncomfortable situation but my husband and George saw him off.
The only other issue was that a house was being built right next to the lodge with work starting at 7.30 in the week, 2cholidays had not been informed about this previously. having said this, we were out most of the time so the day work didn't bother us, it was just the early start. Despite this, we all want to go back again next year.
We found the lodge very good, clean and good position. As we took our dogs it would have been better if the back garden was enclosed, that way we could have let them off the lead, as it wasn’t they were on the lead all the time as we had the doors open. We would definitely go back.
We stayed here for a music weekend and were very impressed by the accommodation. It has a fully equipped kitchen, large lounge with two settees, two good sized double bedrooms and a smaller one with bunk beds, the bathroom is huge and has both shower cubicle and bath. The heating works well and in a very cold November we were toasty. It's dog friendly and ours had a great time on the beach. Nothing to do with the lodge but if your booking for an event at Searles be aware they lock the beach entrance at night and you have to walk all the way round to the main entrance.
Lees Lodge is much bigger than you think. It has 2 large double bedrooms and a room with a bunk bed. All rooms had plenty of storage. The bathroom was larger than ours at home! Comfy lounge, equipped kitchen (with washing machine) and reserved parking space. The lodge is just a quick walk from the beach and entertainments but far enough away that you don't hear either from your bed.
only fault was dodgy backs to TV remotes - but that really is a first world problem!
