Very unfriendly staff. Cell phone is more interesting than to serve the guests.The lodge is not well maintained, nobody cares for the pool and the seats outside.

Dusty rooms. Woke up with nasal problems. Rooms could were not clean. Blanket had caked up sauce. Reception staff not friendly. Reception closes at 10pm (which was not stated). We arrived after 10pm. Almost slept at the gate as we had nowhere else to go and we couldnt get through to the owner and manager.

Rooms were in a poor state, staff not interested. Soccer blaring on the TV at the bar for one patron, exposing the diners to the noise!Food terrible ......................

It is my recommendation that management need to attend a management workshop course.No interaction by the management with the guests.Rude use of language in front of guests by husband and friends.Speak to staff if they are dirt in front of paying guests.Rooms need to be cleaned.
