Have nothing but lovely things to say about Temple. The staff are the nicest I've ever come across in a hotel, they couldn't do enough for us. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and each meal was absolutely gorgeous. I can't recommend this place enough. We're already planning our next stay in January. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From the moment I entered the Lodge to the check out everything was so calm and relaxed. The staff at the front desk were professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much. I enquired into a tour of the Lodge as it has separate accomodation for groups and was promptly shown around. The rooms are spacious, clean and have beautiful... More

What a lovely little place Temple Lodge is. It is hidden away off the beaten track. The spa was fantastic, breakfast was great and the staff seemed very efficient and friendly. We will definitely return

Work in the hospitality industry. Visiting the ploughing festival. Very clean hotel. A lovely quiet retreat. But no atmosphere. Menu very little selection. So headed into town. Didn't have time for any treatments or use of the spa. Was a real pity as it looked very well equipped. Heating was on all night. Very warm. Breakfast was lovely good selection.... More

Having only discovered this hotel had recently reopened through working in a hotel not to far away myself we decided to give it a go for a change. The lodge itself is a little off the beaten track (although well sign posted and easy to find), doesn't have any wi-fi, much phone reception or a bar that serves alcohol which... More

We stayed here in June on a 2 night weekend break. Our room was lovely and check in was smooth. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was good.
