Obesa Lodge lies just off the main street of Graaf-Reinet, which is an attractive town with over 250 buildings of National Monument status and importance. The Lodge consists of a number of houses along one street, all separate from each other, and each one coloured brightly. We had 'Sundowner', which was a glorious shade of pink, but equally we could have been sleeping in lilac, orange or blue, etc.
Our room was large, airy, and spotlessly clean. The bed was huge, and we had a sitting room area, and a small kitchenette should we have needed it. We looked out over the pool area, and sat out in beautiful sunshine admiring the view.
Breakfast is delivered to your room the next morning by a maid, but that system doesn't work too well - the cooked breakfast was less than hot, and the fried eggs were well and truly cooked to solidity by the time they reached us!
The staff were friendly, and value for money was terrific. If you stay there, do make sure you visit the cactus garden opposite - a fantastic range of cacti, owned by an ex-lawyer for whom cacti is a passion rather than a hobby.
