The property is situated in thr St Francis Links Golf Estate. From the rooms you have views onto the golf course and out to the sea, with the whole of St Francis Bay stretching out before you. The rooms are of a high standard and the service from all staff is 5 star. Highly recommended and good value for money

I will recommend this place to everyone I know! Golfer or non. The food is excellent - especially the SANTA BURGER. Highly recommended to all food lovers. The staff will literally bend over backwards to accommodate any request.

We spent two nights at the lodge. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but not large. Great views from the lodge over the golf course and the sea. Sunrise and sunset were spectacular. Excellent breakfasts. We had the one lodge to ourselves, which was great. The staff were super friendly and helpful, particularly the manager, Elma, who organised our golf... More

The room was beautiful and great service was given. It was however presented as a honeymoon suite, which it is definitely not and over priced compared to similar places we have stayed. The room is quite small. The staff did accomadate us at a very early arrival time which was very kind. The view from the dining area is superb

I'm sorry to hear that you were under the impression that we had a honeymoon suite at the lodge, because this is definitely not the case. We cater for golfers and are not a honeymoon destination. However we've had many brides getting ready at the lodge and couples staying over on their wedding night because of the lodge been conveniently... More

The St. Francis Golf Lodge is right next to the first tee of the St. Francis Golf Links. As a guest you will enjoy old-school hotel hospitality. You will even have your golf cart delivered right to your room, and picked up after the round. The rate for a round is reduced considerably for hotel guests. Breakfast is a delightful... More

Clean, quiet, secure, good breakfast and comfortable bedroom. Lovely sitting by the pool when the sun was shining. The golf launch is also located not too far from the shops and restaurants in St Francis Bay. Didn't play golf so can't comment on that aspect ( i'm not a golfer).
