It's always nice to return to Lakes Lodge after a few years and be reminded what a we'll run establishment this is. The staff are very helpful and the standard of accommodation is very good at this price point. The breakfast buffet is good with freshly cooked eggs and other hot dishes. The rooms are great with comfortable beds, soft...

Great staff nothing to much trouble . Excellent location close enough to the town but still quiet enough at night. Superb buffet style breakfast and a massive clean room. Only downside is the carpark which seems inadequate for the size of the hotel, even if you manage to get a space they are too tight for the average car.

The TV was fine and the bed clean crisp and comfy. The only advice I would have is to get a room on the back as the...

A beautifully furnished hotel with a quirky layout. The rooms were clean and cleaned each day. Second floor offers the best views over the landscape. In a great location as the town centre is 100m outside the door. Very friendly staff and a good quality breakfast all you can eat. Certain rooms have better furniture and TVs than others as...

We stayed 1 night recently and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfy, so much so that I am in the process of finding out what mattresses they use! The breakfast buffet was good quality and vegan margarine and soya milk were provided on request. A short walk...
