“Amazing”

Written on: 31/08/2013 by Leannea1 (1 review written)

My partner and I stayed in the chic Paris room on the 23/08/13 to the 25/08/13 for my birthday. I had read so many mixed reviews I was worried about staying as the reviews were so different. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly, professional staff who checked us in quickly. We were shown around the hotel and up to our room. We chose this hotel as I wanted peace and relaxation. I travel on business and have stayed in some amazing hotels and usually if anyone is to complain it would be me… Read Full Review

“Hateful: Owner is an Offensive, Honourless Liar and Cheat”

Written on: 30/09/2012 by MaryFaerie (1 review written)

Did I find anything positive about Aphrodites? Sadly, I couldn’t. You might say being there was like winning a glass of wine. Sounds lovely; until the realisation that you’re chained in a dungeon to drink it and there’s a slug in the glass. On the hot summer day we stayed, my simple pleasure would have been to enjoy the sun in the “garden area” between slipping in and out of the pool. I consider that a reasonable and fair expectation for my £130 night’s stay, wouldn’t you?. A… Read Full Review

“very overpriced and nothing like the website”

Written on: 01/07/2012

This was a special occasion and loved the website..All photo's were taken with a wide angle lense.. We couldn't have our original room and ended up in another. The room was very small and paint chipped off the patio doors the decor was cheap and tacky the bathroom window catch was broken. My partner stays in a lot of hotels with his job including Coombe Abbey and the Hilton for a 3rd of the price, he was shocked at the pricing. It was not worth the money. On the plus side it was set in a… Read Full Review

“Website misleading - awful hotel”

Written on: 07/04/2012

OK so i was extremely excited to visit this hotel with my partner for his birthday weekend after viewing it's very appealing website and looking at the hotels pictures of the rooms etc. When we arrived and were taken to our room which was the flintstones room, wow, i cannot describe how upset i was with the poor state of the room. Nothing like what the pictures portrayed and i honestly felt that we had been ripped off. The bath area was tired and paint coming off. The furnishings were cheap and… Read Full Review

“Enjoyable stay in Chic Paris Suite”

Written on: 30/03/2012 by DazChambers (1 review written)

On arriving at Aphrodites Lodge, my wife and I were made very welcome by the staff, given a tour of the complex and shown all the amenities available to us. Our room was the Chic Paris Suite, which was decorated beautifully and had excellent features including a double spa, single sauna, double shower, lovely double bed and wall mounted flat screen TV. At breakfast there was plenty of choice ranging from cereals, fresh fruit, toast and a full English cooked breakfast. Situated approximately a… Read Full Review

“The new James bond suite :D!”

Written on: 29/11/2011

Loved our stay at Aphrodites Lodge! Our room was a good size just like the picture on website! Was very clean and there was even a big tv on the wall which wasnt on the picture bonus! The massage bath was great! Very nice n relaxing, also loved the fact it had a tv in the bathroom too! The bed was very comfy. The view was alright apart from if anyone was using the hot tub below we would of been able to see them out the window! The water you get provided with says it's filtered but no way in… Read Full Review

“Amazing Hotel, Planning next trip!”

Written on: 15/10/2011 by Kirstymr (1 review written)

I booked this hotel as a surprise for my partner, we are both in our late 20s and i wanted something a little special and memorable. i booked the Victorian room and after doing so was concerned over the negative reviews....i had no need to worry!!!! The hotel was in an excellent position, could easily walk to Bowness and only £3 for a taxi to save wear-n-tear on those heels at night! Bowness has plenty to keep you busy and if you like walking head across on the ferry to the other side of the… Read Full Review

“Romantic Break ”

Written on: 05/08/2011

Myself & my partner stayed at this hotel in The Parisian Suite last weekend for 1 night, i was very apprehensive having only noticed the bad reviews after booking the room & paying in full, never the less I’m glad that i did, the rates per room may seem a little pricey but if you book a room with a private hot tub & double Jacuzzi bath & then compare it to what you would pay in a 4-5 star hotel for a bog standard room, it is certainly worth it. The hot tub isn’t entirely private due to the… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2011

We stayed at the american lodge for 2 nights. Hot tub was excellent as well as location of the lodge and hotel. The lodge wasnt ready when we arrived as they were replacing the fuel burning stove so we walked into Bowness which wasnt a problem.Although we had a lovely few days we wouldnt return as it was far to over priced for what it was. We paid £380 for self catering accomodation a shower that wasnt working although they denied knowing about the problem the showers safety pull cord to switch… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2011

Although there are many bad reviews on here I didn't listen to any of them and I'm glad. Me and my boyfriend are in our early 20's and stayed for one night in the Aphrodite's Log Cabin with hot tub. The room was just like the pictures with a huge bathroom that was fantastic. The hot tub outside was lovely although it is near the drive it has a private gate which can be locked for extra privacy. We found that the hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. We loved our stay and would recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2011 by seanps41 (1 review written)

the One thing I can honestly say, hand on heart, this hotel is the pits & it is not a luxury boutique...Those who gave the good reviews must either work there or only ever go camping

We stayed there only this week in the Cleopatra room & what a run down, grotty room it was. If any of you watched the idiot abroad it was a bit like Karls room in Cairo. Dirty looking carpet & rugs...stained bath base...stained (gods knows with what) sofa...junk ie fags & wine corks down the side of the hot… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2011

We stayed in the arabian suite and we loved our stay here. Only stayed for one night during the week as it was much cheaper and really enjoyed it. We spent most of our time in the massage bath, also with Tv was fab. Don't listen to the bad reviews as we thought it was great, we were shown round the hotel on arrival and thought the staff was very pleasant. We have just booked to go again to stay in the chic paris suite for my birthday and am looking forward to it… Read Full Review

“Novemeber 2010 ”

Written on: 01/12/2010

Novemeber 2010

We booked this hotel last minute as we wanted a couple of days luxury but had no time to read the reviews. We stayed in the Oman Suite with Hot Tub the first night and the Tuscany room on the second night.
The hot tub for the Oman Suite is literally 2 foot from the entrance to the 'hotel' with a flimsy fence for privacy. If we spoke above a whisper we could be heard by all coming in and out of the entrance. The pics on the website give the impression that this is a luxury… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2010

This suposedly luxury hotel is not. They take your money on booking so that when (not if) you have a problem you cannot argue the price. We had no hot water after a days walking and all that was said was "all i can do is appollogise". The bathroom is musty the grout is dirty the silocon sealant looks like it was applied by a 10 year old. You get a tea tray with 2 biscuits that have to last you your whole stay (3days in our case).only uht milk no real milk. I could go on and on but all i can say… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2010 by banditwild1 (2 reviews written)

The manageress on duty is an ignorant woman with no customer care skills at all. The staff hardly speak English as it was even an effort to direct us to reception. Breakfast was a cramped affair with poor service and poor choice. The room was cramped (Tuscan suite)(Tuscan Attic more like) with a very sqweeky bed and very hot with no air con. The airbath could not be used after 9:30pm because of the noise it made. The paper we ordered arrived at 9:30 (waste of time) Check out was like arrival an… Read Full Review
