Friendly and helpful.
We just did an overnight and the rating is based on that. The cottage we had was excellent in terms of layout and space for suitcases etc. Nice bed and aircon a bonus. Would have like a proper shower in bathroom. Overall nice comfortable stay.
It was a short stay. The service was great and the lodge very comfortable. Absolutely recommendable!
The hospitality is even better.
