"Just checked out after a nights stay at Barnsdale lodge and had a lovely stay. The lodge is set in countryside which is so peaceful and as soon as you step out of your car you relax. I was given free upgrade at check in which was a great start!
The rooms are spacious and well dressed. Toiletries are white company and nice tea tray provided. Maybe a large refillable bottle would be better than small individual shower gel etc to cut down plastic waste.
I feel extra staff when large groups are in would prevent some chaos with orders as my coffee after dinner was forgotten. I asked about it then was brought the wrong coffee!
Minor details but help with customer journey.
Mushroom risotto was amazing but spiced plum crumble, (no spice), was a disappointment. Feel chef was not using his talent, which he obviously has, and put shop bought soft granola on top, same granola served at breakfast.
Breakfast menu varied and great for vegans and vegetarians which is often overlooked by hotels. Lady serving coffee bit miserable but maybe having bad day.
Would definitely recommend a stay here as only minor niggles.

"Excellent location - a few mins walk to the town centre, very friendly staff, clean, nice room and facilities, safe, good value for money and for me, was marvellous to have the TAVAN restaurant attached to the hotel, again with very friendly staff and delicious food - the best hummus I have ever had! . A very enjoyable, stress feee stay! "
