An experience at an establishment is always measured by the small stuff. No milk for coffee, no adapter for their hair dryer, bed rather old and held up on blocks of wood, sound travelled between rooms due to the type of ceiling (shadecloth), cups were not cleaned each day, kettle cord was too short so it had to stand on...

What a tasteful little gem out there amidst the citrus orchards! Pretty, spacious rooms, lovely garden and pool, crazy dog (will throw its lemon into the trunk of your car to get your attention so you'll throw it for him). And very kind and helpful owner Diederik made us feel truly at home there. He prepared a lovely dinner (springbok)... More

We had heard a lot about the Lemon3 lodge and the owner Diederik and were really curious to finally get there ourselves. The guesthouse is conveniently located on the way to Addo Elephant National Park. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated and has a modern feel to it. The owner Diederik was very nice and accommodating and has been extremely helpful.... More

A wonderful spot to escape the road. Diederik and his staff welcomed us in and provided great help to find things to do in and around Kirkwood. The township tour is a definite must. These folks are not only great hosts but they are also providing an immense service to the community

One of the major things that makes a good lodge is the effort the owner(s) put(s) in. In Lemon3lodge's case that is well taken care of! Not only did we get a great breakfast (unfortunately we were just 2 so we couldn't sample dinner), but we also got invaluable inside info on the country and where to go to in... More

Beautiful lodges with many different activities within range, for which additional information is provided. Good coffee during breakfast! Rooms are equipped with powerful air conditioning and are large, open and good maintained. A nice private trace is available to relax with a drink you can get from the lounge.

At Kirkwood we had a fantastic stay at Lemon3lodge! Diederik is a very friendly host. He explains what the touristic possibilities in the neighbourhood are. The food he serves is very delicious.
