we decided to try somewhere different for a Sunday lunch today. We should have been warned by the fact that there was only one other table for Sunday Lunch. There were 5 of us. 3 had Lamb Shank, 1 had fish and I went for the Roast Beef and Yorshire Pudding. It is very hard to get all 5 meals... More

My friend had a wedding there a few days ago. The reception of guests from the gate was below par. We walked around like lost animals, no one cared to see that we were stranded. The waiters who one would think know everything about the hotel directed us to the wrong place. We went back to the gate to ask... More

Entering the lodge you feel like you have stepped back in time, into colonial times. The character of this place is great. The cottages are fabulous - so spacious, each with own veranda, massive bathrooms, living rooms and small kitchen. Wish I could have stayed longer! Lovely restaurant and grounds. Reception was very helpful as were all the staff. Lovely... More
