No keys to lock our doors, our clothing was removed from the cupboards and place on the bed for no apparent reason.The shower door was broken so the bathroom floor was always wet. We were under the impression that the bathrooms were on suite but four men had to share one bathroom.

This place has potential with nice rooms, however the house and gardens are dilapidated. The lodge is not marked and no address given. Had to get keys from neighbouring guesthouse and as there was only one set, had to give it back every time we wanted to go out somewhere. We even got phoned up while asleep at night to open for other guests - who then left again, leaving the front door and gate wide open.

The lodge was clean, very comfortable and very affordable. We were made to feel very welcome and the owners were very hospitable and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
