“Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

We stayed for a couple of days over New Years Eve at Tenahead Lodge. The lodge is beautifully located in a high mountain surrounding. Yet the trip to get there is worth some stops to enjoy the breathtaking views. Although the lodge itself miss these stunning views and once you are there, they can only be reached by a short hike to the top of the surrrounding hilltops (what obviously is only possible when weatherconditions are fine). The rooms are spacious, fantastically furnished and have very beautiful views on the Bell river. All in all we enjoyed our relaxing stay at Tenahead Lodge. Although the advertised "six star cuisine" seemed to have vanished with the new chef. Ok, let us put it in a more positive way: our understanding of high quality cuisine is different. Maybe because we are European. The chef is brilliant in meat and dessert. Don't discuss the rest. But: Other guests liked the offered courses. So, don't let us be too unjust. We simply have to look at other places for food, that meets our expectations when staying at a 5-star-lodge.

We spent the night for our anniversary and it was marvelous! We love 4x4, so it was a great outing to drive to the top of Naudesnek. The hotel is beautiful and built to compliment the area (the walls look like the authentic Basotho hut walls in Lesotho). The room was amazing, huge and very comfortable.
We had the 5 course dinner, which was superb, and the breakfast was equally great. The hosts were friendly, helpful and we felt right at home.
We had a very pleasant stay and will definately return!
