Booked 5 nights here and never regretted it. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and set in a very nice garden with mountain views. We booked the honeymoon suite which was actually a slightly bigger room than the other rooms available and was nicely furnished with bar fridge TV etc Internet here was fine and better than other areas in South...

This was overall a nice experience. Driving into the lodge is a bit of a hassle - there is a somewhat lengthy (5-10 minutes) process to get through the security gate. We were warmly welcomed with a drink and promptly shown our room. We were in the cottage which was quite nice and....huge! There is an upstairs bedroom, complete with...

Enjoyed two nights here in November. Our hosts, a lovely Australian couple, created a warm and friendly atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable, attractive and well appointed. Breakfast was generous and delicious, and the hotel restaurant is open for dinners. The menu is varied and interesting, and very tasty, my compliments to the chef. Not only did we enjoy delicious food...

Our group of six stayed for four nights at the Lodge's Hillside House - we had it to ourselves with the most excellent .... "Excellent and Lizbeth", the live-in staff who catered to our needs. At first 10kms seems far away from the lodge, but in fact, it is a straight and simple road, not even 10 minutes away and...

We stayed here for 2 nights so we could do the boat trip around the dam which was well worth doing and allowed us to see the scenery from a different angle. Although the accommodation was nice and the place was in a lovely location with zebra wandering around the grounds there were one or two niggles that made my...

This is a very nice hotel, especially for our last few days in South Africa. It is like a fairy book. It is everything you want an African Hotel to be. The Lodge and rooms are great, the cottage that we have is beautiful. Thatched roof and beautiful furniture. The food and drinks are awesome too. This is very relaxing....

Excellent and relaxing stay, thoroughly enjoyed the pool especially when the Zebra's visited. The food was excellent and all the staff could not have been more helpful. They were very happy to organise all our trips and we especially enjoyed our visit to the waterfalls which they recommended.

We only got to spend two nights here but what a beautiful place! It is a little way from other civilisation so we chose to have our meals here also and that turned out to be a great decision, fantastic food in a stunning setting. The local Zebra paying you a visit in the evenings is an added bonus. Comfortable,...

Very nice place in the middle of the wild. We could observe zebra from the pool of the lodge. The service is also great: I've left some clothes in this lodge and Vicky M. (from the staff) sent them out through the post so that I can get them back in Cape Town at another hotel. Very helpful and dedicated!...

Used as a stop off en route to our game reserve stay as part of visiting along the panoramic route. We only booked it as we were struggling to find something that met our timetable but what a great find it was. Nestled in a secluded secure hideaway, it was like immersing yourself in another world full of calm. The...
