Ye Olde House

Review of Old House Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 03 Feb 2018
This was our half way stop en route to Cape Town from East London.
We chose this venue and were most impressed with its location and despite it being just off a main road there was little or no traffic noise. The booking was handled most professionally and we were contacted along the way to enquire if we wanted supper on arrival. We chose to have supper at the Old House and were most impressed with the friendliness and the meal. We had a Lamb Pie and Karoo Lamb Chops all beautifully prepared and served. The wine selection could be slightly improved on. Breakfast was an absolute delight despite the toaster being on the blink. All the guests were impressed and a great atmosphere contributed to that. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the staff smartly attired, friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. A minor issue with what appeared to be a "soiled" top sheet was smartly and efficiently dealt with to our satisfaction. A King Size Bed makes such a difference. We shall most definitely stop over should we pass this way again.
Date of stay: January 2018
Room Tip: Try and stay in the main house to avoid the walk. It also has WiFi
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Stayed over at the Old House Manor in a lovely clean room. Staff were friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was most enjoyable. The best was the lovely rain that fell overnight in this very dry area. Nice garden and swimming pool for gueasts to enjoy.

Having stayed for a night at this establishment a few years ago, our experience has again been a very pleasant one and the friendly staff ensured a warm and hearty welcome that makes this halfway stop-over to Cape Town a home-from home experience especially with a lovely home-cooked dinner we could pre-order with our reservation. A nice little luxury treat at a very reasonable rate for any weary traveller!
