Clothing & Accessories:
As we are in a mist belt it can get very cool in the evenings so bring a tracksuit or jacket.
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.
Everything was spotlessly clean, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely go back again.
Friendly staff, clean & comfortable accommodation, good food, good prices. Well worth the stop over.
