Ingeli Forest Resort Guest Reviews

Average Guest Rating: 
  4.2 out of 5 based on 4 reviews.

The accommodation was very comfortable. Staff are warm, friendly and welcoming. The lodge is easy to find and within a quick trip to nearby Kokstad for business travellers. The food was lovely and the restaurant atmosphere and waitrons were efficient and attentive. A lovely place to stay.
