Very friendly welcome on a beautiful spot and with a nice view over the hills. It is very closely located to Hazyview and the Panorama route and they serve an excellent dinner on the terrace with a nice view over the surrounding hills and valley. Breakfast is greAt as well and the rooms are very specious and clean.

Very nice lodge, beautiful rooms, they also offer very good meals which is great if you don't want to go looking for restaurants (and drive back on unpaved roads at night). That said, the road though unpaved is in good condition. It's a great place to get away from busy city life, relax and enjoy the beautiful views from the...

We stayed there for two nights in Feb 2013. A bit outside the noisy traffic and splendid views on the valley. Very friendly owners and excellent meal. Spacious room. We had a suite with an outside shower. The swimming pool is just what you'd like it to be. Thank you once again

Set on 50-hectares of indigenous bush-land, the Lodge has 12 tastefully decorated en-suite rooms or Suites, each with their own patio on which to enjoy the spectacular valley views.
