Rated 3 out of 5 by Thomas Dew on 2nd September 2019

Rooms are clean, spacious and family-friendly. On the apartments top floor, the veluxe windows don't stay open and the blinds don't block out much light; but the walls are thick, so you don't hear anyone else below or above. Lovely restaurant and great bar including gin offers and the place itself is in a great area!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ash Robinson on 9th September 2019

Fantastic holiday, lovely accommodation. If you're the kind of person that runs your finger over every surface in the lodge I'm sure you'd find something to complain about but it's honestly a lovely place for couples or families. They have a small park for children, the hot tubs are huge. The Sunday carvery is excellent, we went early and got so much meat.Only minor gripe is that you have to pay for the gym. I haven't seen the gym so can't speak for what it's like but I've stayed at plenty of places where the gym and spa is free and only the treatments cost. It's not a cheap venue so the added cost of £10 a day seemed a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark Davies on 24th August 2019

Lovely place to stay tower apartment very good excellent staff would definitely stay there again

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul Stephens on 14th April 2019

Lovely stay here, we had lodge 15 which had a very private decking area with a hot tub. Sunday carvery very nice. Only down side for me was there was only one parking space for the lodge if you had a second car they have to park it in the car park near reception.

Rated 1 out of 5 by funky bluebear on 6th September 2019

APPALLING - please do not take your family here. NOT LUXURY!!!I am really not one for complaining unless it is worth complaining about.My philosophy though is that you never give a second chance to make a first impression. Our family holiday this year we chose this place as it was advertised to a very high standard and would tick all the boxes we required.we checked into lodge 21 yesterday 16/08. After a long drive we unloaded our things and went into the town to get essentials and have a birthday meal as it was my birthday.Coming back to the lodge later the first thing that hit us was a real strong smell of dogs. Wet musty dog smell.The smell was that bad I went out and bought air freshener, as it was raining I put it down to the rain and really didn’t want that to spoil our only week away as the kids were very excited.A very long day meant we just wanted to sleep. So we tried to get some sleep and look at the lodge with fresh eyes in the morningThe following are all reasons for us checking out within an hour of us waking up on the 17/08 please see images1/ what look like droppings behind the sofa and under the curtain.2/ really bad smell of dogs.3/ a brown smear on the wall under the stairs.4/ sharp ungrouted areas in the bathroom floor which cause our 3 year old to hurt his toe.5/ squashed flies on the walls.6/ large cracks and general poor upkeep of walls.7/ no sky tv as advertised.8/ extremely uncomfortable beds.9/ private hot tub area ( not private ) as grassed area to left of hot tub is raised and we witnessed three people letting their dogs defecate on the area before cleaning up. Not something you want to see whilst relaxing in a hot tub.All this in mind we are really really sad that our holiday has been ruined by such a poor lodgings.I would not expect my family to put up with the things listed and the fact that my skin was crawling from the state of the place I pa led the car and made a couple of calls and luckily found a small lodging in cheddar available for two day at lease so that our time down here was not wasted at all.I handed the keys back to reception made my complaint and asked for a refund to which I was told there was no manager on site to authorise this and that they would get a manager to call me regarding my complaint. The previous day on check in we were told that there was always a manager on site and that one lived on site so we could be assured if any issues. Funny that changed 8hrs later.We left with no refund and a promise of a call.We never received a call, and instead blue chip holidays sent us an email basically saying that because we had left a bad review on trip advisor the manager felt that the damage was done and that NO REFUND WAS TO BE GIVEN!The case is now in the hands of our credit card company and solicitors.Please when looking at this place take off the rose tinted adjustments they have made. It really isn’t very good. It’s dirty. Worn. The furniture is very uncomfortable and I wouldn’t want any other family have their holiday ruined like us.
