From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by very friendly staff. The owner explained everything and gave excellent advice on tours etc. The room was very comfortable, clean, and we had everything we needed. For the 4 days we stayed here we felt like we were at home. And the location, the lake view, and the town, are just amazing. We will definitely be back.

Excellent. My only issue is the LED streetlight outside the room put blue light in around the edges of the curtains and affected my sleep but that is the fault of the council, not the lodge. My partner is not sensitive to light so he didn't have trouble sleeping.
