  • What an amazing 4-day holiday we were privileged to have at this lodge. The ambience was so relaxed and understated yet fine-tuned for perfect service at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely and uniquely decorated rooms with the finest quality furnishings. Common areas encouraged being sociable and also provided for private spaces. The food with silver service was truly sublime and the fabulous cocktails must have their own mention. Excellent location by the beach. We will be back!. 5

  • From the beautifully manicured gardens to the delightful hosts and the welcome of tea/coffee and home made biscuits, our stay was a pleasure. The rooms were well laid out and beautifully furnished. This, topped off, with very low key but personal service made the visit a true pleasure. 5
