“Perfect mini-honeymoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here on our 3 day mini-honeymoon. We stayed in Mackenzie suite and were welcomed with complimentary sparkling wine and rose petals decorating the room. The breakfasts were a treat every morning and spending a whole day poolside drinking the delicious local wines was just what we needed. Colin, the owner, was completely attentive to all our needs and made our stay extra special. The restaurants food was top-class too.
This lodge is excellent in all spheres and great value for money too!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

It was twilight when our vehicle slowly wound up the steep rain sodden road on a wet Cape winter’s evening. Glimmering lights from magnificent thatched stone buildings on top of the hill immediately ignited a sense of magical expectation in us.
The Lord’s Guest Lodge is an authentic Scottish-styled establishment set in the rugged Robertson Karroo landscape. The buildings complete with chapel and plush conference facilities convey a charming village atmosphere. The cottages are stylishly decorated and luxurious comfort best describes the ambiance. The dining room, pub and all cottages comprise generously sized open fireplaces which provide pleasing warmth to the areas.
We were made feeling welcome from the moment we arrived and the service throughout was impeccable. Our dinner was exceptional, made even more memorable by the accompanying wines from the Lord’s own award-winning winery. The Lord’s Shiraz 2009 is well worth mentioning. Breakfast was equally good and I cannot wait to come back and try out some more of the chef’s sumptuous offerings.
Nature lovers will find this region remarkable. The lodge is situated in an area where three major vegetation types merge. Elements of Succulent Karroo, Fynbos and Renosterveld vegetation types are represented here and bring with it a melting pot of very high biodiversity and endemicity. This transition zone also supports many threatened species, both faunal and floral.
I have recommended The Lord’s Guest Lodge to many people and will definitely be back soon.
