We spent a few nights here on a tour of the Garden Route. The lodge is an old Victorian building so is not all polished chrome and fine fittings. It is in a quiet area and just a short taxi ride to downtown Capetown. Staff were very helpful (especially Juan who tried to help us with sorting out Avis Car Rental) and friendly. Ok. The pool and garden area are very small but let's face it, you've not flown all the way to Capetown to lounge by a pool (have you?).
Would I stay here again? Definitely.
