Our car club visited Hornbill Lodge on our monthly breakfast run. The setting among the trees is beautiful, with a lovely view of the river from the covered restaurant deck. The breakfast, however, was a disaster characterised by cold food, poorly cooked eggs, cold and soggy and/or burnt toast, burnt carrot cake and service so slow that calling it glacial would be kind. Not to mention the only coffee offerings being instant coffee granules and instant cappuccino from a sachet. Elaborately decorated milkshakes do not make a good restaurant - good food, good coffee and good service do. Any cook who can't make a good omelette or produce a slice of warm toast ought to consider a career change. In fact, the cook and the manager ought to be fired. What a pity - any establishment blessed with a setting like this should be a gold mine. We shan't be returning in the foreseeable future.

This is advertised as a dog friendly venue. However a fat old mongrel staffy attacked our dogs, as his owner (also of the venue) reluctantly pulled him away. We were charged R80 for a beer and a cider. Very overpriced - seaks are over R220 ! The place has a "hillbilly" feel to it, and is tired. You can do much better in the area , give it a miss........

Hornbill Lodge is such a terrible place for one to be, we couldn't even spent the night. We found the rooms to have a terrible, rooms to be extremely cold and old uncomfortable furniture , dirty linen on the bed, dogs all over one would swear those dogs sleep on the beds. To make things worse, unfriendly owners who were not even concerned that we were not willing to spend the night at their horrific place. I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone
