My son, Dale, was booked in and paid in full but never actually stayed over as his vehicle broke down in Graaff Reinet where he was forced to spend the night. My wife did contact your establishment to inform them and was told she would be contacted by the owner, which still has not occurred to date. What I find... More

Lodge is well maintained with various room offerings. The garden rooms are the best and are not that exposed to noisy guests. Decor of rooms are modern and clean. Lodge only serve breakfast that is well priced. Various restaurants are close by. Car parking is problematic and not always secure.

Desperately calling around for lodges to accommodate my family after the hired-trailers' bearing gave up leaving them stranded on the M5 whilst moving them from DBN to Cape Town at 11pm. George was so helpful and friendly when we called from London to try and resolve accommodation for the family and goods on the trailer. My family eventually made it... More

It was not value for money. We didn't plan to spend that much money. We were forced to do so because the owner said the room we booked was on renovation. Therefore we had to take another room. We stood at reception for about an hour. They couldn't find the keys of the new room they suggested which was more... More

Stayed one night at this lodge while travelling to Cape Town. This lodge is very central located and has even secured parking. Checked in early with no problem, our room was ready. Small room with a small patio and small bathroom. Free WIFI, but not in our room, you have to go to the reception or sit in the garden.... More

From the moment we stepped in the service was out of this world and flawless. The personnel was friendly and helpful. Always with a smile and with what we paid per night we thought we are in for bare basics. And the breakfast was great with the cute cat walking around as an added bonus.

Average lodge. Room was confortable and neat. Good location. Service however not good. We paid the full amount for our stay 1 month ahead of our stay. Still we were asked three times if we had paid already. It was as if they were just worried about getting paid. Never once came to ask us if everything is fine during... More

First impressions were good and the friendly staff at reception made one feel very welcome. There seem to be rooms of different standards/quality which is hard to accept if they are rated 'four-star' - one reasonably expects all the rooms to be of a high standard. My first room had urine on the toilet seat and on the floor next... More

My third review for the lodge, and this time I am not coming back. Previous time I was very upset, but I had enough. Front desk service was good. She even agreed on late check out, so I cant complain about her. The room was ok. At least clean this time. Breakfast was the disaster this time. I had a... More
