My partner and I stayed at Willow Lodge within the last couple of days when my partner had organised the stay as a surprise night away.
We had stayed in the lovely garden view room. It was a reasonable size room, clean with a very comfortable bed and wonderful furnishings and two very comfortable armchairs. This room doesn't have a fire but the heater was fine once it was going to keep the room warm. TV and DVD player were found to be easy to use. There is an large ensuite with the room and the towels were large and luxurious. Savoury nibbles were available in the room and later a small plate of biscuits were delivered.
Dinner is available with a choice of one, two or three courses at a reasonable price, however, we chose to go for for a meal. Breakfast was included in the cost and was quite plentiful. Cereal, fresh fruit, toast, plus eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, tomato and spinach.
The historic home is an ongoing work in progress...the guest rooms and dining room have been completed, however, the work in progress is quiet work and didn't distract from our comfort whatsoever, neither did the evidence of the work in progress.
I read the previous reviews prior to writing this, and I was surprised to read the review written by Dennis. One of the hosts did assist in serving breakfast in his dressing gown and we had thought nothing of it. I would imagine if we were to stay more than a night, that we would have felt comfortable enough not to feel that we need to be showered and dressed for breakfast, and would have appeared in our dressing gowns too.
We will be back and next time we'll be booking the Mountain view room and we will definitely be staying in for dinner.
