We stayed here for 4 days, great little lodge. Staff are wonderful and helped us organise the travel to and from the airport which was really appreciated! We had two rooms side by side which were very clean. Laundry service is also available which was useful for us as we were travelling quite a bit. Lovely rooms and great breakfast!
