        My wife and I stayed here after a busy group tour through Southern Africa and we really enjoyed the comfortable, characterful surroundings and excellent service after what had been a very busy trip. Ideal if you have a car and use this as a comfortable and safe base rather than staying in Johannesburg or you just want a couple of relaxing days away from the city.

        Great Rooms but left us wanting”

        Rooms, Gardens, Cleanliness

        Although we were only there for a night as we had an early flight to catch, I would rate the lodge as satisfactory+. The reasons are, the rooms are great, they are very well maintained, but our flight was at 6:30am and for the first time ever, I have had a hotel refuse to give breakfast 15 minutes earlier, which was a MAJOR down for us. Apart from that the grounds are nice , but we felt that the staff wanted to do the bear minimum to welcome guest. Anyways, would recommend the place as it is good value, although a little out of town.
