The location and back drop of this lodge is just beautiful. The lodge itself was spacious, tastefully decorated with lots of space for guests. The lounge was very comfortable with amazing floor to ceiling windows overlooking the mountains. The bedroom was large, well designed with patio windows on to a private seated area again with mountain views.
The lodge facilities were excellent with free wifi, small kitchen stocked with tea, coffee and homemade biscuits. A guest laptop with internet access is also permanently available. The snug TV room with DVDs and Sky also came in very handy on the day the weather came in.
Breakfast was lovely and on the day we needed to be up very early Rosalie insisted on getting up to make us breakfast. We had the cold buffet dinner at the lodge one evening which was delicious.
Rosalie and Russell were welcoming hosts and literally nothing was too much trouble for them. Well travelled with great conversation they genuinely wanted us to have the best possible stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this lodge.
