Room was made up really nicely with nice furniture and sheets etc. but the soundproofing or rather lack of it is a major problem in the lodge! The floorboards from the room above squeaked whenever anyone moved and the walls were so thin I could hear the kettle boiling in the room next door and the two old ladies chatting...

Short term profit over customer comfort in the "hotel", thank goodness that the pub/restaurant doesn't copy. Room had thin walls, noisey plumbing, small TV and copied cheap parts of budget chain in providing liquid soap but no toiletries ("bars of soap too expensive"). Pub had great beer and great food

Such friendly owners that couldn't do enough for you, a very dog friendly pub also, the pub is decorated beautifully it felt very homely, the room was clean and comfortable and provided everything we needed, the only negative was the accommodation was very noisey the 1st night I guess the walls are pretty thin, this wouldn't stop us returning though......
