Darling Lodge Guest House - a beautiful hideaway to relax and enjoy life with a romantic garden. Everyday a fresh breakfast buffet with a warm eggs-selection individualy prepared. Very clean rooms, and brand new large pool suites! The lodge is in easy reach from Capetown, the coastline and is a point on the Darling Wine Route. Don’t miss a visit of the close by Ormonde Wine Estate (in walking distance from the lodge) - beautiful setting, tasty food and premium wines! The hosts Oli and Stefan are taking full care of all the guests, truly a wonderful place to enjoy the warm hospitality of South Africa!

Our stay at The Darling Lodge was the best choice ever. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home. Beautiful, serene garden setting, swimming pool, tastefully decorated rooms and a wonderful breakfast. Once in the room or cottage, one feels extremely private. I highly recommend this Guest Lodge.
