  • "The double bed (advertised as a king) was very uncomfortable."

    The vacuum cleaner was full of other people’s dogs hair. The guest book stated ‘thank you for the Prosecco, dog treats, milk’ nothing was left for us! We won’t be returning. We were asked to leave the property as we found it but I don’t think we should have to do a cleaning job when we are paying to stay there. However, I did vac and clean the toilets.

  • "One of the twin beds had a sock left in it which begs the questions had the linen been changed."

    The double bed was so soft you felt as if you were sleeping on the floor making it difficult to get out of. The Key safe was not user friendly and we only gained entry with the help of two holiday makers next door who also found it difficult. When we left at 4am in the morning in the pouring rain we could not put the key back in the safe again because of difficulties gaining access therefore we had to put the key in a plastic bag tying this safely near to the key safe. Not ideal as we were not able to leave this as we found it due to no fault of our own.

  • "It said there was a smart tv and there wasn’t, a lot of other lodges had big smart tv’s which would have been better as there wasn’t nothing really to watch on the channels we had."

    When the weather was poor we could have used the apps on a smart tv to keep our little one and ourselves entertained. It was also listed that we had a king size bed but it most definitely wasn’t

  • "Betty's Lodge was lovely."

    We chose it because it allows dogs (we took 3 with us)- this was a huge selling point to have the dogs included in our holiday and we wouldn't have booked it if it didn't allow this. The lodge was more spacious than the pictures show. The site was quiet and well maintained with lots of walks locally. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
