We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed being at the Lodge. Our chalet was cosy but a little small, and it did not really allow for self-catering. The food at The Lodge was excellent but the menu was rather restricted which meant having to have the same dish twice in 3 days. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The front office team were very accommodating, allowing us a later check out in order to get another hour on the river before we departed. The bar and restaurant ladies (mother and daughter) were delightful, and we enjoyed some historic stories of the lodge. Dinner was fabulous and the wine list was a real treat.
