Positive Reviews

Out of this world cuisine

The food here surpasses most guests expectations. They are amazed at the scrumptious eight-course dinner which forms part of the room rate, and is sometimes said to be really romantic as well. The extensive wine list is also mentioned, with guests saying that it complements the dinner perfectly. Those who want to enjoy a special outdoor meal together appreciate the lovely little picnic baskets that are easily arranged for them.

A special kind of ambience

The peaceful and serene surroundings seem to be just what most guests are looking for when booking at this lodge. They love the quietness of the area and find it to be a relaxed break from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The comfortable surroundings are also said to be really private for those looking for a little extra solitude during their vacation.

Exceptional service

Nothing seems to be too much trouble for this team. From the warm and hospitable welcome to the five-star presentation of every detail throughout the stay, guests love the relaxed vibe they always seem to feel during they stay here. According to guests, it's the staff who make all the difference when it comes to a near-perfect stay.

Negative Reviews

No on-site spa

Guests feel that a property of this kind, which aims to attract couples in search of both relaxation and romance, should have an on-site spa.
