    “Fabulous lodge, great interior design, and well equipped.”

    Situated on a beautiful park. Pros: * 2 en-suites plus a third toilet and third shower. * Sauna and Hot Tob (with great views) * Good decor * Good quality furniture and fittings. * Well equipped with everything 4 people will need. * Fabulous holiday park with excellent staff Cons: * The sofa in front of the TV (cloth one) seems to have lost all support and is pretty uncomfortable. I would swap it with one of the leather ones that are still fine. * I don't understand why ...

    Situated on a beautiful park. Pros: * 2 en-suites plus a third toilet and third shower. * Sauna and Hot Tob (with great views) * Good decor * Good quality furniture and fittings. * Well equipped with everything 4 people will need. * Fabulous holiday park with excellent staff Cons: * The sofa in front of the TV (cloth one) seems to have lost all support and is pretty uncomfortable. I would swap it with one of the leather ones that are still fine. * I don't understand why guests are not allowed to use the EV Charger. We are sure it was advertised as having an EV charger; that is especially what we searched Sykes for. We were fortunate that another lodge charger was not in use so we could use that one. Everything about the lodge was excellent and the park is lovely. Nice scenery, nice landscaping, impeccably kept. Very peaceful park and the other guests all respected that so didn't disturb each other. The staff were very friendly and contacted me several times before and after arriving to ensure all was OK. They were excellent in sorting the charging issue above. If we wanted to come to the area again we would have no hesitation in booking this lodge again. For future guests, the Highwayman pub is less than a mile away and serves decent food. The Hot Wok Renaisance Chinese takeaway in Liskeard will deliver to the lodge but is cash only.

    - Aleck, April 2024

    Thank you so much for your wonderful, informative feedback Aleck, we really do appreciate your time and the information you have left that will help future guests. It is so lovely to hear that you had a peaceful and relaxing holiday with us and you wish to come and stay with at Southern Halt again in the future. I am so sorry there were a couple of areas which could have been improved and we do hope that this can be resolved for subsequent guests. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
