Although we visited SA during Winter when StFrancis Bay was very quiet, our stay in Thatchwood was a success. We experienced a warm welcome by its friendly staff. The rooms were charming, clean and up to date. The lodge had a pleasant fireplace around which we could make ourselves comfortable. Especially the personal dedication by the owners was exceptional.

The room was very good except we had a problem with the DSTV reception. They did try to fix it but it was the weekend. Breakfast in the morning was good and the service from the staff was excellent.

The location was convenient but there is a short walk (10 minutes) to get down to the main shopping area.

What a pleasant stay! Friendly staff, beautiful rooms and a great breakfast. We enjoyed having drinks by the pool overlooking the beautiful golf course while a troop of baboons kept us entertained! The lodge is well situated and located right at the entrance which is great for coming and going throughout the day. Will recommend this place to everyone going to St Francis bay.

Staff were welcoming but we found the accommodation tired and in need of maintenance. The bathroom in particular had a rusty shower pole, dirty curtain and the sliding door wouldn't work and the timber pelmet fell off. Towels in need of replacement.
The upstairs room was noisy as exposed thatch and no internal boarding.
Separate garden area not attractive and in need of some attention esp the large tree.
Communal areas okay but very dark and in need of updating.
Good breakfast. Nice pool.

GOOD MORNING

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay.
We have had a very busy year and maintenance was not done in time. Especially the family room you stayed in. No excuse but we are working hard now to catch up with maintenance.
We are closing for 3 weeks to do all the maintenance needed.
I apologies again, and hope we will see you again so you can have a relaxing enjoyable stay with us

Kind regards

I think this is a quirky B&B rather than a 4star lodge. Our room was a reasonable size but in need of some updating. We felt it was not as clean as it might have been. Breakfast was OK. The owners are enthusiastic and offer good local knowledge

Thank you for your review.
I see what you say about maintenance, we have had a very busy year and only now we are getting a bit quieter. So now it is our time to do some maintenance like painting and fixing . Specially in your room also the carpet will be replaced.

We hope that you will visit is in the near future so you can see the improvements

Kind regards
