Our room the Wilverley, was beautiful. (Please see photos.) We felt like we were truly immersed in nature from our beautiful tree 4 poster to the little sun trap terrace...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We booked this hotel due to the excellent trip advisor reviews. We hoped that these wouldn't then raise our expectations too much and be disappointed - definitely not! We can only re-iterate what all of the other positive reviews have written: room, location, staff, cleanliness, food - all excellent. We even received an email a week before providing brief details...

There are many good points which are the location, allocated parking and comfortable bed and everywhere was very clean. The Rhinefield is a lovely room with a beautiful ash tree four poster bed and mirror. The snug is cosy and is a lovely little room to sit and browse through the folders containing lots of information about the local area....

Dear Mary, thank you for taking the time to review the Cottage Lodge. We aim to bring a little taste of the forest into the hotel, so you have a flavour of the local area. Sometimes a hotel room could be anywhere in the world. We want customers to feel as if they are in a forest. We don't really...

We spent 4 nights at Cottage Lodge a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the Tom Hayter room which had its own entrance round the back, and its own little sitting out area. The room was kept beautifully clean the whole time and the king size bed was very comfortable. The owner Christine and all the staff were...

Stayed in standing hat room, which was quite a lot bigger than expected! Very impressed, it manages to be both very modern and cosy, and even has a woodburning stove. They had reams of leaflets with instructions for local walks - I did two of them and they were perfect. The food was pretty pricey, but it was very good.
