We spent three night in this lovely Guest Lodge. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Our room was very nice and had the most fantastic view from our bed, bath and shower :-) What also impressed us was the attention to small detail. The breakfast was superb with interesting options. I loved the porridge with almonds, banana and... More

The rooms are large and attention to detail was excellent. The only complaint we had was that the owners were aloof and unfriendly - whereas Fish and Wendy couldn't do enough to make our stay wonderful.

We had the most amazing memorable honeymoon ever! even tough my husband is wheelchair bound, the staff made our stay as comfortable as possible and made sure we could do everything on the honeymoon package. The breakfast was the best I have ever tasted and such a big variety! We will definitely come back!

We totally enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the room itself. The views are great, the towels huge, the sheets luxurious, the tub enormous, the two shower heads made for a fun experience, the pool while a bit cold was refreshing, the hosts are delightful,the location convenient, it was very thoughtful and very pleasant in every way.

Everything was lovely - chalet, view, welcome. It's a nice walk to town and easy taxi ride back. However and unfortunately, that stretch of road and the acoustics of the mountains make the traffic so noisy

I had high expectations of the Elephant Hide from what I'd seen on their website, and I was not disappointed! We spent 3 nights in room 3 in February 2014 and enjoyed every minute of it. The hospitality was wonderful, the room was spacious, with all the comforts you could ask for. The views from our balcony were out of... More
