Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not 4star by any stretch of the imagination We were very disappointed upon arrival at the lodge. The blue wren did not comfortably fit 10adults and this should not be advertise as such. There was only room for 6 on the lounges and the dining table only had 8 chairs. The BBQ was unusable and dirty, there was not even cleaning products to clean. All the cutlery were dirty and dusty, the pans etc were unuseable and there wasn't enough wine glasses etc for everyone. It was advertised as AAA 4star, I would rate it a 2. It was also advertised as a bathroom and onsuite albeit, there was one bathroom and a second toilet in the laundry. Would never stay here again and feel it was not worth the money.
