Hotel Re-Opening Update

Your Safety Comes First

We are looking forward to welcoming our customers back to the Lodge Hotel from Friday 3rd July for residents and Monday 6th July for non-residents. We appreciate the past three months have been a trying time for everyone and that you may have some concerns about safety during your stay. With that in mind, we have put in place some extra procedures to compliment our existing extensive cleaning & safety measures.

It is important that we all work together to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and help ensure the safety of our customers, staff, friends and family. For that reason, we ask all guests, while staying at the hotel to adhere to the following guidance:

  • Use sanitising stations and wash hands regularly
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will operate on a booking system only, please book at check-in
