We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Lakeside lodges in Mount Falcon. We had a lovely holiday in a 3 bed lodge which was extremely comfortable, modern and very well fitted out. The kichen was equipped with dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, oven and hob with plenty of cutlery, utensils and crockery etc. The utility room had a washing machine, iron and ironing board. All the bedrooms had double beds and were all ensuite. The Lodges look out onto a lovely lake with its own ducks and even 11 ducklings!! These were a great source of entertainment for our young children. We also used the pool which was just a nice size and even had a small paddling pool for toddlers.
The Hotel itself is very nice with an excellent restaurant. Breakfast was included in our 3 night rental and the hot breakfast was cook to order and of a very high standard. We did not have dinner in the restaurant but I had eaten there previously and had a lovely meal then also.
I would highly recommend the Lodges for families. The staff supplied roll away beds, a cot and highchair for our children. It was great to arrive after our journey and find all these things in place as per our reservation. Staff were extremely helpful and nothing was a problem.
All in all a great stay and I would love to return again in future.
