From the moment we arrived the attention to detail was extraordinary. A welcoming drink, a cheery chat and all the help we needed with bags etc. The hilltop Lodge is beautiful with very private thatched cabins equipped with everything you could need, except -thank Heavens - phones and TVs. Our Room (2) had balconies on both sides, with a truly magnificent view over the orange groves and mountains that stretched as far as the eye could see. There is even an outside shower you can enjoy under the hot, African sun (it is all very private). The room had a large bed, beautifully netted (although we found no sign of mosquitos here), and the bathroom had a cast-iron-style bath in the middle of the room where you could lie and look out over the scenery. Owner Archie and his staff could not have done more. They were courteous, helpful and yet great fun. No stuffy nonsense here, just quality. And the restaurant was superb - they certainly know what they are doing. Our advice, go for 2 days and make some time just to chill out at the Lodge. It is wonderful.
