The rooms at the Lodge were modern and well appointed. They were compact but adequate and comfortable. Tap water was drinkable. A wine tasting was offered as part of the booking. A home cooked BBQ was the evening meal. A great place to spend a night.

Stayed here for one night as part of Tucan tour group. Lodges are 5 or 6 years old and are built in a row. Clean and ver6 adequate but clearly not luxurious. Small but adequate bathrooms and good A/C. Lovely pool and bar area. Our group enjoyed a lively wine tasting of 6 of their local wines which was v enjoyable. They also provided a very tasty and filling dinner - chicken , rice and veg followed by ice cream and chocolate sauce. Very friendly staff. You can take a short walk along the aqueduct which is used for irrigation. Fabulous views from the lodges as you are on the side of a hill (they also do camping) and nice starry sky at night. As others have pointed out walls are thin and you can hear voices/alarms etc from your neighbours. Would recommend as long as you are not

One of the best places to camp I visited in Namibia and South Africa. They also offer a wine tasting experience for just 100ZAR per person. That includes some cheese too and 6 different wines of the area. I totally recommend it.

We stayed here during an overland trip with Intrepid, therefore tents were provided as accommodation, although the weather was good enough to sleep under the stars. Facilities at the site were good: the toilet and shower areas were clean, the swimming pool was a real treat, and the bar was well stocked. The manager on the day could have been friendlier, and was all too keen to provide a list of rules to adults on a wine tasting tour. That said, the stay was still decent overall.

Beautiful property, excellent staff and service, great atmosphere, good food, but the walls and the ceiling of the rooms are paper thin. You can hear full conversations from your neighbors, so even in the bathroom you can't get any privacy.
