Lower Lodge is well equipped and located in a quite corner but all local amenities are very accessible.

Clean and well equipped but decor and furnishings are dated. The double bed is not comfortable, with a soft and saggy mattress. The shower is wonderfully powerful but it is not easy to control the temperature and there is no safety stop; take care not to scald yourself. The property is dark, damp and dingy even on a sunny day due to the excess of fRead moreoliage surrounding the windows and to the front. The entrance to the driveway is narrow and visibility up the road on exiting is limited. Hide

Some guests will say the Lodge is outdated whilst others will say it's charming, but that's all down to personal preference. A couple of things need a tweak to improve the overall experience - the shower control is very sensitive & care is needed when adjusting the flow / temperature; the loo seat got wet when flushing, lid up or down, so needed anRead moreti-bac spraying.

Sometimes when we flushed the toilet, there was a bubbling up of water into the shower outlet. The shower was hard to work, you get scalded very quickly. The owners were very pleasant, but I'm afraid to say the whole house definitely needs updating which would definitely be a big advantage for anyone wanting to explore Alnwick. No offence to the owRead moreners, they were lovely people. Hide
