I booked this accommodation on behalf of invited guests who were running an equine bitting clinic in Randjesfontein, and stayed there two nights and enjoyed every moment from the home cooked meals to the comfortable rooms and friendliness of their hosts.

I love the architecture of the buildings. It is always an enjoyable walk around the property. I also love the outdoor patio by the pool. There are tables and chairs where I can do my work, enjoying the sun, listening to chirping/cooing of the birds, watching them build their nests. Cool... The room is spacious, although a little too dim for work, I have to stay close to the bedside lamp. Bed is soft with so many pillows (I am not complaining). It comes with electric mat, so don't worry about getting cold at night. Complimentary cookies everyday ;-) Antal and Angela are the best hosts I have met, always smiling and concern whether I am comfortable with my stay. And they are fast to respond when there are issues. Absolute peace-of-mind!

The Lodge has wonderful grounds, a nice lobby, and a pub and restaurant. The rooms are huge (the size of a studio apartment) with all the amenities you could think of, from refrigerator to microwave. The beds were comfortable and the staff was extremely attentive.
