Positive Reviews

Peaceful and picturesque setting.

The lodge consists of several buildings connected by internal courtyards that were described as very-well presented by many of the guests. The grounds feature cozy open fires and plenty of seating areas where guests could relax with a few drinks. The pool area was also described as well-maintained with plenty of comfortable loungers. If you are looking for somewhere scenic and peaceful then you certainly won't be disappointed. .

Tasty and hearty breakfasts.

Guests were impressed with the variety of food on offer for breakfast which included both hot and cold items. The dishes were described as being well-prepared and made from quality fresh ingredients. Many also appreciated the numerous fruit juices on offer as well as the freshly brewed coffee.

Spacious and comfortable rooms.

The rooms have been described as being quite spacious with balconies and walk-in closets. Guests appreciated the equally roomy bathrooms which featured large separate showers and double basins. Many said that they were comfortable in their rooms and slept well for the duration of their stay. .

Negative Reviews

Early closing hours.

Some of the guests who wanted to have a late night drink or a meal were disappointed to find that both the restaurant and the on-site bar close at 9 pm. Many had to leave the premises and visit some of the local bars and cafes in order to have their meal or enjoy a few drinks. .

Dated bathrooms.

The bathrooms have been described as rather tired looking with dated suites and basic fixtures. Guests objected to the moldy grouting and rusty shower heads as well as the low water pressure. .

Slow Wi-Fi.

Those who wanted to catch up on some work or check their emails were disappointed to find that the Wi-Fi connection was very weak and intermittent. .
