My brother-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at this lovely lodge. We embraced the friendliness of the owners, the location, and our rooms were both very comfortable. Returning from dinner to a crackling fire was a highlight of the day. Staff were charming and very efficient. The breakfast was very enjoyable, overlooking the golf course.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, and there are 2 budget rooms for travellers watching their pennies.

Set in the picturesque Eastern Cape, This is the ideal getaway spot. Our room was very spacious and modern with all the necessary facilities. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed the excellent breakfast every morning. The guest house is close to the shops and restaurants and the view of the golf course is breathtaking. We will definitely be back!

the staff was very helpfull and friendly. The room is beautifull with a king size bed. The bathroom is enormous. The breakfast was very tasty, and to much to eat. Ideal for golfers. St Francis Links are just across the road.

A very friendly Steffie welcomed us with coffee and cake. The room she showed us was spacious and well equiped. Our room had a fridge, en suite bathroom and private terrace. So far we should have rated Thatchwood Country Lodge as a good average guesthouse.
But it is when you get in trouble that one can discover the extra quality of the house. As we would go to the golfcourse we found our car with a flat tyre. Harry spontaneously brought us to the golf with his own car and took care of the administration with our car rental company.
This kind of extra service is not what we expect from every host, but it is very much appreciated in this case.
