Changes to Booking Rates

A marked shift in demographics is occurring amongst the membership and users of the lodge.
Certain elements of the pricing structure for accommodation do not appropriately reflect this shift and cost-base and need to be addressed.
Below are the rates for the 2020 season.
These were approved by the members at the 2020 AGM.
Some more detailed information explaining the need has been sent with the 2020 AGM minutes.
