Loved it. What more can I say, they were so helpful and efficient. Rooms were clean, reception was friendly and understanding. Didn't have a chance to book breakfast though so I can't comment on food. Security at the gate was professional and I felt safe upon arrival. My bed was converted and I didn't have to ask. That's proactive especially... More

I spent a day here, arriving on a morning flight, then flying out in the evening. The somewhat bland exterior masked a truly lovely hotel inside. The staff were wonderful and accommodating, the food was good, and everything - although not luxurious - just worked. When I return for longer I would certainly consider this hotel.

We felt safe at all times and the managers were very accommodating regarding special requests. Even the continental breakfast (as advertised) included sausages and scrabled eggs additional to the menu.... More

Road lodge is so beautiful when you enter by the gate and you will expect a lot from the lodge but immediately you arrive by the reception it turns you off.
