Really enjoyed our weekend at the Woodenbridge Lodge and Hotel. We booked The Lodge , our room was comfortable and warm and very clean. The Lodge was away from the main hotel, a very short walk and it was quite nice to be separate from the main building. Staff were very friendly and helpful and offered information on local walks....

Stayed there for two nights with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff where very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. A breakfast to keep you going all day and delicious evening meal. Our only negative would be the refurbishment which we felt took a lot of the old feel from an otherwise perfect break.

We booked the hotel, only to find we were allocated The Lodge, it was more like a hostel, very loud guests wondering around drunk in middle of the night, no night security on duty. Bar was packed when we arrived wasn't very comfortable. It was a stay to remember for the wrong reasons.

It's been a few years since I last stayed here. It's certainly changed for the better! Room at the lodge was comfy and big enough. The hotel had a wedding on that evening but the staff still looked after the residents just as equally.
