Great facilities and friendly staff! Ideal location if you want to visit some of the game farms in the area or overnight on your way back home or down to the coast. We enjoyed the food. Do not play golf so cannot comment on quality of golf course.

The place was great, nice and quiet for a relaxing stay. The restaurant served really good food and the staff was very warm and welcoming. It would be nice to have other outdoor activities around the area and not just golf . Overall we had a pleasant stay, thank you.

We needed a quick stop over on our way to our business destination in Kleinpoort. We loved the cleanliness, friendly staff and well appointed rooms and facilities. Definitely worth a stop over if you are travelling or want an inexpensive golf weekend.

We stayed at this lodge for 5 days and were delighted with our room which turned out to be an open plan suite with hallway, sitting area, double shower room, double basin, as well as a walk-in dressing area. This hotel was once quite upmarket but was hit by the recession and shows some need of refurbishment: mainly carpets and...

A brilliant trip - staff were friendly, the accommodation was comfortable and affordable. the round of golf was good with the course sufficiently challenging. The entire experience was a pleasure and the entire group enjoyed themselves.

A nice hotel that is unfortunately a bit run down, however, fine if you want to stay over in Alicedale for a game of golf. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and generally clean. However, do not expect great food, or enhanced services.
