We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lorraine's place. Our accommodation was very comfortable and served as the perfect base for a weekend pf sport at Michaelhouse and evening visits to local eateries. We certainly recommend it to other Midlands visitors.

This is a difficult review to write as there was so much beauty and potential, the grounds, trees and space, the children loved riding their bikes around and playing outside, Room 5 needs a full bathroom upgrade, or at least a new toilet seat and the basin scrubbed clean. There is borer in a beam over a bed in one of the self catering cottages, proof on the carpets above the beam. .Most distressing was the owner shouting out something about "rude guests" as we left. In this very competitive market, surely an owner should be able to take positive feed back?

Though the bed was rather soft as I'm used to a hard bed, the pillows were too soft. The room was very cozy, great walk in shower, there was cell reception thanks to the wifi. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and Breakfast was great with a variety of different options.

We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon, beautiful tranquil venue with absolutely scrumptious breakfasts daily! Watched sunsets and super close to many of the midlands activities. Wonderful hosts and personal touches :) WiFi incredible and generator excellent (worked wonderfully during our stay when there was stage 6 loadshedding)

We booked 3 rooms as a family for the weekend. Our hosts Lorraine and Koos were amazing. Made use of the lounge area on the Friday night. Nice fire place which makes it really cosy. Rooms were very confortable and clean. The breakfast in the mornings were superb. Definitely worth a vist, if you in the area.

My wife and I stayed at Notting Hill for my birthday. It was amazing. Beautiful setting that is central for meandering. The hosts Koos and Lorraine are wonderful and made us feel right at home. They serve a yummy full english breakfast to set you up for the day. An overall awesome experience.

It is a nice cosy place to stay, the staff is very friendly and attentive, they were welcoming. It is a bit outside of town but manageable drive if you want to get to shops. The rooms were comfortable.

Notting Hill Lodge is definitely a place that i will return to. The hosts made our stay extra special, the rooms were so comfortable and warm, the breakfast on the verandah was excellent. We had brilliant wifi connection in our rooms as well as in the communal areas of this Lodge. Would highly recommend this place for a tranquil break away or a stopover.
