Basic and comfortable accommodation at a very good price. Spotless. Personally, I would have liked thicker toilet paper, a bigger towel, and a shower head that moved! A socket extension for the light, kettle and microwave would make life brighter.....Overall, a good experience.

This place is awesome, quiet and the house we stayed in had everything we needed. With the windstorm that we had there, took the power out, we did not find it at all a problem. The owner tried to find a place for us, but we where happy and managed fine. I was so surprised that the wait for power was not even log. Staff was friendly and will definitely be visiting here again.

We stayed over at Obesa Lodge on 1 April 2021 and enjoyed every minute. The lodge was clean and comfortable. It is very central and reception gave us very good advice on safety and the brochures were informative and helpful. We will definitely recommend Obesa Lodge to friends and family.

Had a great stay in Dotty one of the rooms at Obesa Lodge. Rooms were clean on arrival and serviced every day with fresh towels provided daily Kettle, microwave and air conditioner ensured a comfortable stay especially on hot days . There is a nice braai facility and a pool to kick back after a long days sight seeing. The outside was as clean and litter free as the inside and it is obvious the hostess prides herself on a well run establishment. Well worth the money, and it was not expensive . Parking was safe and secure and ample Amenities close by garages shops and restaurants .So all in all I would most certainly make Obesa a must stay base in future visits
