The pro's: Great rooms - well designed, spacious, clean, new and extra long beds (with excellent mattresses), quiet aircon, fantastic shower (and bathroom in general). Lord Caledon is located in a very beautiful neighbourhood close to the local botanical garden and less than 15 minutes walking distance from all the good local restaurants (e.g. the supreme restaurant "The Old Townhouse" max 1.5 km away).
The con's: A pool with no trace of chlorine (water beetles were actually living quite well in the pool). And the pool was occupied daily by the owner's 6 year old kid and her friends.
The small dogs are barking whenever something passes the front gate (or any gate) at any time of the day.
Non-transparent pricing. The asked for a price quote. We got a price per person being 25 ZAR lower per person than stated on their web site, BUT after breakfast the first morning the owner demanded an additional fee of 75 ZAR/person/day for the breakfast thus bringing the price well above the price published on their website (where breakfast is included in the room price)... VERY unpleasant experience!!! So get your quote specified in every detail!
