Got back from a 2 night break at the Lyncombe Lodge. We booked this hotel from a Groupon offer and paid £49 for 2 nights including breakfast.
I will start off with the positives as the location of the hotel was really nice. The breakfast was also really nice, with a really good selection.
Unfortunately the room we were given was below standard. We stayed in one of the 'chalet' rooms which are located outside the hotel, I felt it was on the small side but I cannot comment on the rooms within the hotel as I did not see them. The room itself was pleasant enough but avoiding the spiders & cobwebs outside the room under the porch was a task in itself. Inside the room it looked as if it has not been cleaned properly. I found cobwebs down the side of the bedside tables, cobwebs and spiders in the corner of the room (I would like to point out I am petrified of spiders).
The bed itself was nice, the mattress sloped down on both sides so you felt like you were going to roll off the bed in the night.
The bathroom was in an awful state, hairs in the shower, dirty marks in the seat, the toilet seat was loose and kept moving around. The shower wouldn't give any hot water so we called someone to come and have a look, we waited 45 minutes and after another phone call someone came to have a look. My other half also mentioned the cleanliness on the phone to reception but nothing was ever done about it and by then I just wanted to get on and enjoy my short weekend away.
All in all, I would never return to this hotel. I felt like we were put in the dregs because of the money we paid. If I had paid the full rate for this room I would have been disgusted, the chalet rooms need some attention and love and care.
