Warm and friendly countryside service. Recommended accommodation for 2-3 nights in the area. Spacious room (1), a bit constrained on shaded parking and need some inspiration and creativity to upgrade the bar's selection of wine and whiskey.

The room was nice decorated. The bathroom was large, a very good large and modern shower. Nice wash-bowl. The toilet waits for a new seat. For those, who have a sensitive olfactory sensibility, the thatched roof did smell a little bit moldy. The noise from the street nearby was very loud early in the morning. Very friendly hosts, good breakfast,...

Our room was excellent as was bathroom. Only small complaint was the very poor bedside reading light - perhaps they can change the globes ! Breakfast was good and the position was fine. Thoroughly recommended, but ask not to have the rooms in the driveway.

After a warm welcome we enjoyed 2 nights with our family of 5 in this lovely place. Nicely decorated rooms with soft beds and extra heating in case it was colder at night. Very close to nice activities during the day (horseback riding, golf, beach, canoing...) Would really advice this accomodation.

We arrived on a cold and wet afternoon to be immediately offered some hot coffee, even before we'd been shown to our - gorgeous, beautifully appointed, room. Our hosts helped us choose a restaurant for that night - not an easy decision, as there were so many to choose...

My brother-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this lovely lodge. We embraced the friendliness of the owners, the location, and our rooms were both very comfortable. Returning from dinner to a crackling fire was a highlight of the day. Staff were charming and very efficient. The breakfast was very enjoyable, overlooking the golf course.
