This is not my style, but I have to share this. We booked a room for the night of the 11th of July. When we made the booking we told them that we are only leaving Cape Town at 8pm. They assured us that it's no problem because they are open 24/7. We arrived there before 11pm, everything was locked.... More

I had the most amazing honeymoon at the lodge. Great service, attention to detail, amazing and creative meals and the lodge owner's interaction with his guests was remarkable. It comes highly recommended if you're looking for a peaceful place, with the hustle and bustle of life being a distant memory. The surrounding farm workers and their children are also trained...

We were received by a very friendly host and taken to our beautifully furnished and very comfortable room. The bath in our room (the "Love" room - all the rooms have happy-themed names such as "Peace" and "Tranquility") was an amazing addition. The breakfast and optional dinners were really good - tasty and interesting combinations. The owner is very friendly... More

We went to Ukholo Lodge for our family vacation. My children said that it was the best holiday they ever had. The rooms was nice and spacious. Nice place for couples to celebrate their anniversary. As it got a cottage that looks out over the mountains. This time of the year you are surrounded by green trees full of oranges.... More

Despite the 2 bad (untrue) reviews below, phenomenal & tranquil are the words that come to mind each time we visit Ukholo Lodge. The perfect 'home away from home' with great food, breath taking scenery & incredible reception from ALL staff. This is the perfect place for a relaxing time away with the most beautiful scenery, ideal for spending with... More

What a wonderful Easter Break with family. A last minute break was greeted by a homely and caring reception and service from the proprietor Benjamin. Not even an unruly group could dampen our weekend, which was handled well by Benjamin. A true home away from home. Highly recommend for any family break away. Thanks Benjamin

False advertisement on their website! This is bad - stay away! Arrived and found nothing is as advertised on their website. Paid R1800.00 deposit for the stay. Decided to cancel the stay and owner committed himself to give our money back. Now that we left he does not want to give our money back - he told us we have... More

Beautiful scenery, good food, relaxing, intimate and very welcoming atmosphere. Beer lovers make sure to take your own! Some renovations are taking place, which may seem untidy to some people, although it did not bother me at all. All the staff are friendly and makes you feel at home.

We stayed for 2 nights. When we arrived Benjamin welcomed us in a relaxing environment. The next day we went for a long hike up to Wolfberg Arch. We needed good food after that. And staff surprised us every meal with great food. The best stop between Cape Town and Noordoewer.
