We stayed here in August as a last minute stop. The staff were really accommodating, lovely breakfast. Rooms were lovely and clean. Unfortunately my son was poorly during the night and was sick everywhere in the room, the family who own the lodge couldn't have been any better, they were so kind to us even though I was extremely embarrassed!...

Wow....what an unpleasant experience. We arrive at the establishment after a very long and taxing journey. Ring bell twice to be "unwelcomed" by what we can only assume to be the check-in clerk. My husband explains that we have a booking at which point she makes an about turn and heads into the house. We follow, as we haven't been...

Thanks for the review. Sorry we were not home to welcome you! The lady from the previous disadvantage group who welcomed you are replaced and the light fitting on the fan tightened. Humidity on the coast line can sometimes surprise inland guests, and our lady did not tell, that you could have slept with your doors and windows open and...

My stay at Dieu-Donnee stretched over a 2 week period and it was a most wonderful, comfortable stay. The room was a spacious, open-plan self catering room, well appointed with a full bathroom, much to my delight. Wim and Antoinette were so friendly and accommodating. They also have a back-up generator which was a huge bonus! I never knew when...
