My wife and I stayed at one of the Courtyard Lodges as a change from hotel accommodation. The facilities were very good indeed with all we needed for a pleasant 4 day stay. We decided to eat our meals in for 3 of the 4 nights and the kitchen had all the facilities needed. If anything the electrical gadgets were more complicated than need be, but that’s how things are these days, no simple on off switch anymore! Our only small criticism was that the beds in both rooms were 4’ 6” and not 5’ as is the normal minimum these days. Also although there is internet access in the lodge either on the TV (which you have to pay for and use a stupid keyboard) or via a cable to your PC there is no Wi-Fi in the lodge. For this you have to go up to the hotel foyer and use the free Wi-Fi available there.
We used the pool and the hydrotherapy suite in the hotel and I have to say that the hydrotherapy suite is the best I have ever come across – anywhere. It is magnificent and a must for any adults staying at either the hotel or lodges.
All told it was a very enjoyable experience and one we would certainly recommend.
