1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bedroom was dirty, as was the bathroom. The room looked nothing like the pictures. We stayed 2 nights and the bed linen was not changed, in fact the bed was not even made! The bathroom was not cleaned either. The BBQ was so dirty that there were flames and we asked for it to be cleaned for the following evening but this did not happen. The Management of this Lodge were appalling - it was expensive for what it offered - dirty, run down rooms with terrible bathrooms. Sadly, it’s the only place there to stay.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This lodge is very basic and quite rundown. It needs work done for it to be a comfortable stay. No effort to make it look decent. The food on the other hand was very good. A lovely lady from Chile at the reception desk was very nice and helpful.

Location very good for exploring the surrounds. Accommodation is aging and needs refurbishing. However, comfortable in general.
