We had a wonderful overnight stay at Esther's. the accommodation was spot on and the dinner was very yummy. We found both Esther and her husband to be very hospitable and friendly. I can highly recommend this Country Lodge.

The food and ambiance are lovely at Esther's and the hosts are always on point. I love my breakfasts and Sunday lunches here. I had one nasty experieince with a badly trained staff member but otherwise quite an oasis in the area

The scenery was stunning, and the staff even more so. Each dish is fantastic, and I have no complaints. Overall, a fabulous dining and getaway experience, with many surrounding activities and a very idyllic atmosphere

We enjoyed our quick stay. The unit was clean and the breakfast the next morning was very nice. The only issue we had with the place that it was right next to the road and therefore hear the traffic on occasion. Other than that, everyone...was very friendly and we'll definitely stay there again.More

This was a lovely place. The owners go beyond to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. I will be coming back with my son because it has space for kids to play, swim and enjoy. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves.

We were at Esther's Country Lodge for a weekend wedding in the area. We were attacked in our rooms around 2am, faced with an armed robbery that got into 4 of the 6 occupied rooms and completely traumuatised us and our friends. While Esther commented...that this never happens, the police confirmed that there have been many break-ins in the area, and at this lodge in particular, and that they have impored her to beef up security. This is not a safe place to stay.More
