twopass two nights spent drinking wine next to a fire outside in nature was thoroughly enoyable. Beautiful views and close enough to the mountains to feel inside them. This is good value for money. Supper was great while breakfast needs more detail.

An historic establishment (over 100 year old property), this Lodge is without pretensions, but comfortable enough. In early Spring, the rooms are cold and drafty, but our room had a fireplace and heated floors. But the bathroom with slate floors was a challenge. It sports an old fashioned pull-chain toilet, but a good, though dark shower. The bathtub fits a... More

Out in the country with expansive vistas, a marvelous night sky and a pond that attracts the eland, we thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here. Yvonne, the manager, took excellent care of us, even to getting us a supply of Savannah Dry for Happy Hour around a nice fire laid in the lounge. Our room was fine, comfortable and spacious....

We had a wonderful weekend at the lodge. The road was good, and the setting of the lodge was very beautiful. We went for a walk the next morning along the river and enjoyed the natural beauty of the surroundings. The owner/manageress was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We found the room perfectly decorated, with a nice... More

We came across this lodge after driving into, and straight out of the Sani Pass Country Hotel. The manager wasn't home, but the staff were very welcoming, and phoned her - we were able to stay. On reading the visitors' book we were rather alarmed, as every other entry mentioned the total lack of management and complaints about the place... More

A follow-up on my previous review of Seaforth. After numerous e-mails to the Tourism Grading Council (who have removed the four star grading) and the Underberg Tourist Board, as well as the new owners, I received my deposit back. Apparently the new owners have upgraded the lodge and surroundings - but I cannot verify this. I decided to write this... More
