It's nice to hear you thought the lodge was lovely, although sorry to read that you feel you have been mislead around the wifi. On our advertisement we only have the option to say 'yes/no' to wifi being available, and wifi is available, it is just supplied through the estate themselves at a very small cost. The price for your stay would not have been any different based on the availability or quality of wifi. What we can do is add some notes to the text in our advertisement to make it clear that the wifi is purchased through the estate on arrival so that is clearer to guests in future.
The hotel are usually really helpful when it comes to resolving issues and I would hope they refunded you for the cost of the wifi if it wasn't working for you. We ourselves would've been happy to assist had you contacted us during your stay.
Once again apologies that the quality of the wifi impacted your stay at the lodge.
