i would never recommend this place to anyone. the rooms full of dampness the curtains never get a change to see a washing machine. the rooms are used seems to be extra storage space. microwave filthy never seen soap or water. if go down to the communal kitchen the tables,stove and fridges dirty. dog bones lays all over the show. and the rooms bedding full of spots and blood marks and who knies what else.. i stayed there 12 days cause for refusing of paying monies back. when this issues was brought up to the owner she started to get funny and last 4 days our full payed stay was raised up with extra 1600 cause of the new year celebration. if we did not pay extra monies we would need to leave... she knew this time of the year everything fully booked so she had us on the short end. i will never advise this place ever. oh and i took photos to show and tell the conditions of the above mentioned

I could not even get a chance to visit the place and would not recommend guests to the place ...i booked a christmas holiday 6000 was paid in and ofcourse there was an outstanding balance..i had 2 cancell my booking a week earlier because of death in the family...when i contacted the lodge 2 cancel i was told there would be no refund first of all they not even sure if im telling the truth.God i just could not believe my ears...then i was told maybe if they get guests to fill up the rooms they will reconsider....now my question is how will i know if the place was booked or not?

A really great place to stay. Liz and Mercy became my family away from home. Beautiful environment, great room, lovely breakfast. Perfect in every way. I couldn't/wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else when back in Durban. I appreciate everything Love Bjorn
