Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room size itself is suffice and was comfortable. I must say the beds were very comfortable and will provide a good nights sleep. The room was clean and tidy. The food in the restaurant was very pretty spot on and very tasty. The staff very very friendly and helpful.

Booked through a 3rd party website but when we went to check out the final bill was much more than we were quoted on the 3rd party website. Hotel wouldn't provide a copy of the bill so that we could see where the discrepancy was and said they couldn't help sort it out, referring us back to the website. No joy with the website as we had lost our original booking number to log in, and this hotel wouldn't tell us the reference number for our booking. Also got down to breakfast and they were already clearing everything away about 20 mins before the advertised finish time for breakfast - one pastry left for 6 or 7 people - and they refused to bring any food back out. I really don't like to give bad reviews. I think this place might have been great to stay at if the staff were more friendly and cheery to deal with, but they all seemed sour and uncooperative, like they wanted to be anywhere else but at work, or at least not to be bothered by guests. I wonder what would cause that to happen.

While the booking process was easy and the room looked modern that is where our positive experience ends. The bed and pillows were terrible and clearly very old, we could barely get in and out of the bathroom/toilet. When we went down for dinner we were told they were full and had to go elsewhere…no problems with this but why were we not told when we checked in an hour or so earlier. Then when we went for breakfast we were only ones there and staff we moving all the tables around making us feel like we were in the way. Very poor communication, very low comfort level and when we decided not to stay for a second night due to complete lack of sleep we were told they could not refund us and kept the second nights fee even though website says free cancellations! Their Moro is great rooms great service….they didn’t live up to either of these during our stay!

Our stay at Croyden Lodge was excellent. The staff are very professional at reception and at the restaurant. The standard unit was spotlessly clean. We appreciated that the room was serviced before the second nights stay. There are tea and coffee making facilities. We dined at the restaurant for breakfast. The menu provided a selection of continental or cooked meals. I would highly reccommend both.

The people were friendly and extremely accomodating, the room was clean and tidy, the onsite restaurant was so convenient and the location was brilliant. We had to alter our booking due to COVID levels and the people were extremely accomodating.

We throughly enjoyed staying at the Croyden, the accommodation was ultra clean and very tastefully styled. Lovely linen and bed toppers, super comfortable beds. The room was toasty and warm on arrival, on a very cold day. Staff were outstanding and very attentive, friendly and professional. It is very refreshing to stay at such amazing accommodation. We also held a function at the Croyden and the facilities and staff were amazing.

The room is nicely finished with a prefect layout. Very comfy beds. Dinner and breakfast were both exceptional. And the service was world class! The rooms are about 50m away from the reception and dinning, we'll the one I stayed in. They do have ones closer. So may be ask for you preference. I personally preferred the peace and privacy.
