We booked the honeymoon suite and was a little bit disapointed of the condition of this cottage. It still had is old world charm, but the pool was not clean and the gardens around it unkept.

The setting is absolutely stunning, the food excellent and the room definitely worth mentioning. The rooms have a private lounge with the most beautiful timber beams. Unfortunately the rooms don't have bar-fridges but the management were quick to supply one on request. The main building has the most beautiful seating areas and a very cosy little library were one can...

Stayed overnight and the views of the lake were totally amazing. The accommodation is beautiful and very comfortable beds too. We missed the sunset cruise but will definitely be back there for a longer stay.

My husband and I spent a night at Hulala on our way home after a visit to Thornybush. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the main lodge building is charming. However the rooms are rather tired and in need of a facelift.
