Nestled in a tranquil setting, this quaint inn is a comfortable hideaway for the business traveller, yet within easy reach of the bustling activity of the city centre. Would not hesitate to recommend!

What a fabulous weekend away :) An idyllic little hide away in the middle of town! One awakens to birds singing and a feelling of peace as the sun rises. Friendly staff providing excellent service. A definite must on your list of places to visit!

Had a very good and quiet stay. The atmosphere was very calm and gave me plenty of time to relax and reflect. The breakfast reminded me of the good old days I spent with my wonderful grand mother. Very homely and inviting. The soft rain coming down as I watched the quarry from the deck was very therapeutic. This has... More

The rooms are very spacious, with a lovely full bathroom, honesty bar and tea/coffee station, small seating area. The upstairs rooms have a balcony. The downstairs rooms open up to a small garden.

Great experience, prompt assistance, very comfortable rooms, 2 prong plugs was stunning, as hardly anyone provides that. Accomodate smokers on your very own balcony overlooking the gardens and quarry lake. Spacious modern bathroom and shower. Luxury tucked away.

We were so pleased to stay in such a well maintained and tranquil establishment. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable with a wonderful breakfast to start our day. I will definitely recommend staying at Quarry Lake with its great service and convenient location but quiet and tucked away from city noise. very enjoyable.

A modern and spacious hotel with well-appointed rooms, but unusually for South Africa, when we arrived for a one-night stay there were no staff available to take our luggage to our first-floor room. Having said that, the hotel was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was well-cooked and could be eaten on a terrace overlooking the lake. Helpful and friendly staff.
