Lovely room set within shady garden with small pool. Hosts are very welcoming. Very high standard all round in fact the best we've stayed at in 2 weeks. Highly recommended. Prince Albert is a beautiful town, an oasis in the landscape.

The Lodge is situated in beautiful grounds in the lovely town of Prince Albert. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the hosts very pleasant and helpful and the whole experience was very good. The location of the Lodge means that there is easy and safe access to all the amenities that Prince Albert has to offer.
