Very good 8,0
Great potential close to Gordon's Bay but ...
The venue is just off N2 which is convenient yet rather noisy due to road traffic. Staff and setting were pleasant yet our prefab room was an all in one bed, kitchenette counter, shower & loo which was a little awkward. Neighbouring room is divided by single panneled wall leaving little privacy with movement and conversation all heard. Venue is great with a lovely feel and super pool. Not what we were expecting though. Will not repeat.

Great surroundings, great value, highly recommende
A stone’s throw from picturesque Gordon’s Bay, this is a wonderful place to use as a halfway house en route to the Garden Route, or to stay for a few days. We stayed in a two-bedroom lodge, which had its own kitchen. Fireplaces inside and outside created a lovely ambience. It felt like we were out in nature, given the lovely surroundings. Michelle was the perfect host, giving information and advice on everything from food to family activities. Chelaya vomes HIGHLY recommended.
