We stayed here back in September 2014 and really liked the place. Our accommodation was the last room in the courtyard adjoining the exit to the car park at the back of the hotel so privacy was limited. On our first night we had food in the bar. I had a salad which was only ok I also had the...

Have stayed here numerous times in the past. This is my first time since late 2015. I was disappointed. We had dinner in the Restaurant and although the food was lovely the service was lacking. Pulled out our own chairs, asked for water more than once. Asked for the bill twice. Over all they seemed under pressure and lacking what...

The Lodge never rests on its laurels and this new menu opens new doors for a broader palate. Now, smaller dishes give far more variety and better options. Recently, I had a dish of hake fillets, accompanied by one of the extras of diced salad. The combination made for a very tasty dish. Afterward, I was into self-indulgence and had...

Where to start. This is the most beautiful place I've ever been. I stayed one night while I helped babysit at a friend wedding. The drive in was spectacular. The views were out of this world. The rooms were stunning and had the best of everything in them. The beds were huge. The food was delicious. Breakfast was unreal. The...

What a wonderful place to stay. It's in a great location, and there are some stunning views of the lake, and some gorgeous walks. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. If you had a request and it could be fulfilled it was, with the minimum of fuss. The food is very good, the rooms come with complimentary waters, lovely...

Beautiful grounds to walk and explore in a stunning tranquil setting. Lots of people in a good way and there was a hunt on when we stayed so it was interesting and exciting to see this as I would not have witnessed this before. The decor is quirky and unique. Bar food is starter size but filling and tasty. Breakfast...
