  • Mr Smith

    “The lodge was great.”

    Very comfy and clean with everything we needed for a great stay.

    Very comfy and clean with everything we needed for a great stay. Views were stunning, location brilliant. Facilities great. Staff friendly. Only one issue: the fridge wasn’t working properly as it froze everything in it from milk to cucumbers! We turned the setting down to the lowest possible but everything still came out like ice lollies!

    - Mr Smith, April 2021

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear that you had a problem with the fridge/freezer. Please accept our apologies and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We can confirm we are working on getting this issue resolved to ensure it does not happen again. We hope to welcome you back so you can enjoy our lodge to its fullest. - Sykes owner relations
