The workers at the lodge were also very friendly and polite and the breakfast was fantastic with great views of the rock. The Rock is within walking distance as are some restaurants down the road.

Everything was good ! The staff is really friendly and helpful ! Very close from the Lion Rock (about 10mn walking from the path - 20mn from the entrance) and ... what a breakfast ! Very nice to eat it in front of the big Rock you're about to climb ;)
