The host and the staff are very efficient, and highly hospitable. That made our stay a memorable one. Not to mention the scrumptious breakfast.
Thank you so much Louise and your team. We will definitely see you all soon.

I recommend the Lookout to everyone. In fact my whole family wants to live at The Lookout permanently!

We wish we could have stayed longer but unfortunately our time was limited. The owner was extremely friendly and the accommodation is very well appointed. We had the larger of the 3 available rooms and it was more than adequately furnished and very comfortable. There were even cookies to go with the supplied coffee and fresh milk. A lovely welcoming decanter of sherry and sweet goodies. We will most definitely be returning in the near future for a much longer stay. Thanks again for a short but comfortable stay.

We've had a perfect stay in The Lookout. Breakfast every morning was a party. Served by Louise herself. We had al three apartments in use. So it feel like it was our own home. The braai and the Pub was used every evening. With the perfect view it became a perfect evening. If you are looking for a very cosy place this is it. Best regards and all the best.

The traveller I booked the venue for, commented & thanked me for organizing such a beautiful place.Our technicians travel around the country and we constantly seek accommodation for them to stay at.This was the very first time I have received such feedback. The rooms were stunning for the rate, best value for money.
