Our stay was lovely in laughing duck Lodge, really good location tucked away which was good for us as we have an anxious dog. The lodge itself was spacious, clean and tidy, would definitely stay here again

Very Happy with our stay at the Laughing Duck Lodge only one very small request could do with a little bedside shelf and a mirror putting in the smaller twin bedroom

This is our second time staying at the laughing duck lodge. The lodge and park is ideal for families and pets! Overall, the lodge is great, however, the cleanliness of the lodge was not up to expectations. On arrival the lodge did not smell great, it was almost as if a pet had urinated somewhere. After having windows and doors opened this did resolve that issue. Also, there was a battery missing out of a remote and with having very young kids we searched around incase they would pick it up. We never did find the battery and needed to do a hospital run incase the young one had picked it up (sounds excessive but you can’t be too cautious in those situations - all was fine). Whilst looking for the battery we did come across old socks under the sofa, and in the bedroom our little boy found what looked like an old cake bar that must of been under the bed. Other than the cleanliness and the battery incident (which can be easily resolved) we had a lovely time at the lodge and we would recommend staying there. Also a little tip, maybe keep all cleaning amenities that are under the sink in a higher cupboard for guests with young kids, we always check and move them but not everyone may do that.

Thank you for your review, Rachael and bringing a few things to our attention following your stay to Laughing Duck. We were sorry to hear of your experience and noting your comments about the cleanliness, we have spoken with the cleaning company responsible and they have assured us that any issues will be addressed and that something similar will not be repeated. On our part we shall be monitoring the lodge more closely. It is unusual to receive such comments about this lodge and are confident, a one off. We have replaced the battery in the remote – thank you for letting us know. Whilst we realise it is now too late to put these right for you, had you contacted us at the time, these matters would have been resolved and with little impact on your stay. As such we can only apologise for any inconvenience caused. We note your further comments, thank you. We are delighted to note this was your second time to Laughing Duck, the lodge has had much work carried out over the past couple of months, along with a new decking and hot tub area, greatly improving the guests experience. We are sure that should you wish to return you will find everything to your satisfaction for an enjoyable stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.
