“Great place”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

Wonderful place, VERY reasonably priced. We unfortunately stayed only one night but will be going back for longer! Travelling with Canadian visitors who had never experienced a backpackers lodge - this one may have been too good to set the standard by. In the double room en-suite - excellent feather pillows and great shower pressure. Tons of information and things to do - could have stayed for a week. Meals on offer looked really great - ostrich eggs for breakfast and ostrich steaks for dinner around an open fire. Unfortunately we arrived too late to book for dinner but had an excellent (higher priced) meal at Jemima's, a short walk away. South Africans of all ages (we are 53 and 62) should get with the program and make use of these great, well priced places to stay!
