Negative Reviews

A few general issues.

A few people made sure to mention that some rooms are small, and the lodge itself is not a particularly romantic setting, lacking a certain atmosphere. In addition, some were not happy with the bar closing early and with no cooked breakfasts being availab

Small amount of noise possible.

While there is the potential for a small amount of noise from within the lodge itself, and faint traffic noise can be heard, this has not been considered disruptive and most guests seem completely unaffected.

Mattresses a little on the harder side.

If you are very fussy about soft beds, then you may be among the few who found the mattresses to be a bit hard when they stayed, but most likely you will find it to not be an issue, like most guests who had no problem.
