The area is both crime-free and malaria-free so you won`t get stung either way!

Rooms and Units Available at The Armagh

The Armagh offers five rooms, each with its own en suite bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, lounge area and superb views of the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range.

Each room has private and direct access to the gardens, which flow unobstructed to the nature conservation areas of forest and fynbos which surround the guesthouse.

All the rooms have been uniquely and tastefully decorated - many items of furniture and decoration having been crafted on the premises.
Johan is a bit of a "fundi" (or expert) on the eco systems and conservation of the area and both Marion and Johan love sharing their experiences in South Africa's development over the past years with anyone interested in such matters!

Downstairs from the mezzanine lounge you will find The Armagh's restaurant, RAFTERS. Here you will be served truly South African cuisine of exceptional quality. The four course meal is served by your hosts, who will take care in explaining the history and preparation of each dish to you.

A comfortable lounge provides a cozy environment for relaxing and perhaps sharing special moments of your holiday with your fellow guests.

Here you may avail yourself of a selection of excellent South African wines whilst browsing through our collection of books, magazines and nature reference works.
You will find information to plan the rest of your trip with your hosts always willing to help with advice, bookings etc, if required.

Again, the collection of fine South African wines, ports, sherries and liqueurs, together with imported cigars is designed to complement the meal and complete a truly unique African experience!
Breakfast is served either in the restaurant or on the patio. Again, a unique experience with a bountiful breakfast catering for both Continental and English tastes.

I had a very nice stay. I like that all the guests meet and have breakfast together. The lady in charge is very kind and service minded.

We loved this B and B. The room was lovely and the dinner and breakfast wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here on your visit to Storms River.

This was the best lodge - value for money - we stayed in during our travels in South Africa. Beautiful setting, lovely restaurant, great spa and spacious rooms. We were three generations travelling together and everbody - from young to old - just loved it!
