Amazing rooms, great view and the owner of the place is really fun and gives a lot of advices on where to go to eat and what to see and to do around. Nice pool, tropical-style huge garden and great bar! Low prices too..

The locum B&B sitter went out of her way to find us alternative accommodation when our travel plans changed and they were unable to extend our stay, for which we will always be grateful. We were charged R80 to cold wash, hang and fold a load of laundry. Add R20 tip and it's double the price of our local laundromat.... More

The owners of the Lodge - Tosca and Gary - are very caring and helpful. For example, even though breakfast is served from 8 am onwards at weekends, because they knew I had to leave at 7.30, they went out their way to make sure breakfast was ready for me before I left. The rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable... More
