A Bit Dated

Guests comment that the lodge is cosy and comfortable but that some of the furniture and fixtures are starting to look a bit dated and a refurbishing is in order as carpets are also faded and rather worn.


Shower Drip

Guests have noted minor maintenance issues such a dripping shower or a toilet that ran continuously. When reported to management, the issues were repaired and guest said it was a minor inconvenience that did not distract from their stay.


Crowded Restaurant

Guests remark that during the height of the season, the gourmet restaurant is popular with locals as well as guests and that at times there is a rather long wait for a table. Reservations are suggested.
