The bathroom is downstairs and was spotless - with a tub and separate shower. Last time we stayed in a regular room... More

We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights. It really is value for money. Although, the lodge and rooms needs a bit if TLC and a minor "face lift". We enjoyed the hospitality of Shona, Francis, Corne and Gordon.
