A warm welcome awaits one at this ideally situated lodge. Accommodation clean, very comfortable and a superb breakfast. Host couldn't do enough to ensure that the stay was memorable. We'd requested twin beds so were upgraded whilst enjoying a complimentary drink. Short walk to the village along the lake. Unfortunately only an overnight stop - would be a good base to explore the Garden Route.
