I have been staying at the keepers lodge for over a year on and off during my travels, I have found that they also make you feel welcome and the rooms are clean and tidy. I am always changing my mind for morning breakfast and this is never to much trouble for the owners. I also on many occasions change...

Thank you for leaving such a positive post about your stays with us. Guest's plans can alter and change in a phone call, it's not a problem I totally understand. Your choice of breakfast too is not a issue, you always keep me guessing!! Nice people are no problem to look after, we are glad you are happy here.

I arranged Mums funeral and everything went perfectly. The staff were excellent and the food was excellent. Although it was a sad occasion, being with friends and relatives in this nice environment made it a happier occasion.

We travelled from Norfolk for the funeral of my husbands Granny, I have a very difficult diet to cater for, and they catered for me very well , and they had even bought in desserts that were suitable me to. It made it so much easier as we were away from home, knowing I wouldn't go hungry , thank you.

Hello, thank you for leaving your post after visiting us for a family funeral. I am very glad to hear that the alternative food provided was both suitable for your needs and that you were not left hungry by not being able to eat the buffet. If I am aware before the day that there are guests needing something different,...

Due to a family bereavement, we had the unfortunate experience of another visit to this establishment for refreshments. Following a previous time spent here under the same circumstances, we had hoped not to visit again. But thinking our previous visit may have been a 'one off', we hoped perhaps this time things may have improved. Oh dear, on this occasion...

I refer to your recent visit and post after a family funeral. I note that on this occasion you are not my client and that this is the second time that you have left a negative review. I would just like to mention prior to replying, that no complaint has been received from the client either via the Funeral Director...

Pro's - nice big clean room. Con's - breakfast not a good standard, cheap sausages. We were travelling down to a wedding, I politely asked to borrow an iron to which I was told "no we don't own an iron" I find that hard to believe. I don't think the manager could be bothered to walk back over to her...

I am not surprised to find that you left a review about your stay. I was awaiting your negative comments. Firstly had you checked our web site you would have seen that we do not provide irons. Not that I need to explain to you but all of the laundry (and that includes mine) goes off site to be done....

We have used this venue for 3 family funeral wakes-including one today. The staff are welcoming and sensitive to the needs of family and friends on what is a difficult day. Plenty of tables. The coffee and tea which you are welcomed with is very good. The food buffet is varied and sufficient for a wake.
