Rainbow Lodge

Our rating:

The seven brightly coloured bungalows at Rainbow Lodge perch crowded together on a hilltop over the river.

Fan rooms are a bit dingy and you'll have to either sacrifice a TV in favour of hot water or vice versa, but they are cheap. Air-con rooms are small and have an odd selection of furniture, but TVs and hot water are included and they have a sort of small cottage charm. The glass-fronted VIP rooms at the water's edge have great views over the river to go with TVs and fridges but are way overpriced given their size. This is a family-run spot and the owners are sincere, friendly and determined to please. They offer free pick-up from the bus or train stations, free WiFi and discounts on stays for more than a night. They also run a cooking school with reasonable rates. While the rooms aren't spectacular, the staff do a lot to make up for it and the location is quiet with particularly good river views, but not too far from the main traveller strip.
