Superb experience
Booked two rooms for two nights. It was absolutely fantastic, and the team couldn't have been more friendly. The lodge is in a very convenient location, is beautifully appointed and I will definitely stay there on my return to Cape Town. Highly recommended .

Amazing stay
We stayed for 10nts and never wanted to leave! Wayne & D are brilliant nothing is too much for them. Any issues are dealt with promptly without hesitation. They’re turning the place into something amazing. It’s a clean bright modern place, well kept by the staff. Rooms are cleaned daily. It’s a peaceful area, nice & quiet all day. The honesty bar is a great idea I’d never heard of one before but it made us feel so relaxed and at home we settled in so easy as everything is so laidback. The prices of the food & drinks are very affordable, free still/sparkling/flavoured water available 24/7. My only criticisms are that they need a few more sunbeds at the bottom pool, a full length mirror in the bedroom and breakfast needs to be a bit more varied. We loved our stay and don’t want to stay in hotels anymore when you have places like this to stay instead!
