“I think it is important to point out that there is actually no available internet connection and very poor/no signal on mobile devices unless you are stood in or at The Old Mill reception.”
The lodge was relatively clean but could have done with a spruce up. If you love budget IKEA, then you will love all the fixtures and fittings.
The cushions on outside chairs had been left out and were actually green and mouldy. The decking and balustrade in a poor state of repair.
Most functions worked on the hot tub although one didn’t and if you adjusted several of the jets you would find they came off in your hand. Although this did give you something to do while relaxing trying to get them to stay back in.
We did venture to the Reception. Was met by a very blunt and quite frankly rude lady, who seemed to work all week. If I pay for a bottle of beer, once she could be bothered to tell me what they sell I don’t expect for what was left in the bottle to be thrown because it didn’t fit in the glass! On another occasion ordering an Americano coffee I was greeted by what’s that.......and why do people call drinks what they like....just ask for what it is. They have a proper coffee machine, I would expect them to know, as this is a very standard name for a black coffee.
My partner an I never felt welcome at all, but she may like you as seemed to depend on who you were.
The locations and layout are really nice of the lodges, not overlooked and very private.
