...This place looks very different from what you see on the pictures. Rooms are more than basic and shabby and the reception picture must be taken somewhere else. After a look at the room we decided not to stay here and had a long discussion with the staff, who didnt want to give the money (just handed over) back. We...

I picked The Lodge off TripAdvisor and wasn't disappointed. The double room was basic but very spacious and there was a nice breeze that kept the room cool. The room and bathroom were very clean.
