  • 8.0.Very good

    This property is lovely but it was too far out of George. When I booked it I thought it was in George. But it is a lively place!

    A breath of serenity.

    The lodge is a long way out of town and not suitable as a destination if you are wanting to do business in George. It is however an amazing location for a peaceful, country break that has beautiful moments of serenity and beauty. The bathroom was under construction and so breakfast was a little noisy.

    Super break along the Garden Route

    I travelled from PE to CT with my mother and daughter. We broke the journey at Arendsrus and were pleasantly surprised by the facilities. My daughter (under 2 yrs) loved the play area and feeding the horses. Had it been warmer she would have been in the pool too! The accommodation was cosy but comfortable and the breakfast was enormous and varied... fruit juice, coffee, cold meats, cheeses, various breads, figs, yoghurt, jams and a cooked breakfast in addition.

    Very good value for money

    Atmosphere was relaxed. We felt safe and at home. The environment is beautiful,secluded, quiet but not too far from shops and the sea

    Phenomenal

    Phenomenal!!!!!!! My range of vocabulary can not do this place justice. The lodge itself is set in a beautiful picturesque location at the foot of a mountain. The staff were so accommodating as I made an error of booking 2 single beds by mistake but the host gave us the honeymoon suite for no extra charge as well as carrying my suitcase to the room. The room it self is beautifully decorated throughout with wood and the bathroom has a separate shower and bath. It has the added bonus of some complementary sherry and chocolates. Breakfast was cooked perfectly and there is a large choice of fresh and cooked products. This room is easily 5 star and such good value for money that I would gladly have paid more and would thoroughly recommend to anyone with anyone without hesitation. My only regret is only staying 1 night

    Ruhig gelegene Lodge mir traumhaftem Ausblick

    Wer Ruhe sucht ist hier absolut richtig! Etwas außerhalb von George am Berg gelegen, kommt man über einen Schotterweg zu einem traumhaftem Anwesen mit Rosengarten, Brunnen und kleinen Holzcottages. Von deren Balkon hat man einen atemberaubenden Ausblick auf das Tal. Die Mitarbeiter sind nett und erfüllen auch schon mal einen Sonderwunsch (zum Frühstück bereiteten sie ein selbst mitgebrachtes Straußenei). Ohne Einschränkungen weiter zu empfehlen.

    Wunderschöne Lodge in ruhiger Lage

    Wer es gemütlich mag, ist hier genau richtig. Top Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Wir hatten eine geschmackvoll eingerichtete gemütliche Holzhütte mit Balkon. Das war eine der schönsten Unterkünfte auf unserer 3-wöchigen Reise. Hier würden wir sofort wieder übernachten und gern länger als nur eine Nacht ! Hier passt einfach alles.
