Rooms are clean and tidy and pre-warmed for you when you arrive, and boy we needed that because it was freezing outside!
The staff are very helpful and warm and they really know the areas around the lodge to inform you about the various activities you can do and places to explore.
The meals were average and gets cold quickly due to the atmospheric cold temperatures. However, we got decent feeds for decent prices.
Highly recommend this place. The loft rooms are good value, as up to 4 people can stay there with 2 single beds downstairs and 1 double upstairs. I would bring your own body wash and shampoo though, as the amount provided was only enough for 1 person for 1 wash.
Lovely place to stay at overall :-)
