I realised that it was better value for money to stay at the Lodge than train and bus it to my place of work, due to a night out with colleagues in the city.
The lodge is well sign posted, and parking appeared ample. The welcome was warm and familiar, and I was given a choice of three rooms. The front bedroom head a little outside noise with the window open but nothing to disturb you for too long.
The room was clean and tidy, with a flat screen TV which you still don't get in many hotel rooms. A wash basin and towels and soap were in the room and the toilet and shower were separate. I stayed in a single room which was airy and well lit.
I spent all of about nine hours there, including sleep :) so I can't comment on what a longer stay would bring. But breakfast was served with a smile with good choices, reflecting the international clientele they have staying. And toast was in abundance!
Overall a no-fuss, no-hassle stay, ideal for night's kip and a great location if you'd like to be near the river but also close to transport links. Very friendly, laid back approach, and good value for money.
