                  My wife and I enjoyed a few days in Darling and surroundings in early January 2014. Darling Lodge Guest House is an ideal location for exploring the exciting Darling area: great artists, delicious food and wines, and beautiful landscapes. Stephan and Oliver are the perfect hosts, knowledgeable and helpful. Don't forget to enjoy the amazing garden and the poolside of the guest house.

                  This was our first night of our roundtrip. Stefan and Oliver are wonderful hosts and care about everything.My highlight was the delightful breakfast in the lovely garden.

                  I have had many short get aways with my 3 sons. Darling Lodge is in a class of it's own and has set the bar high for any other break we have. It is definitely somewhere I would love to stay again. Perfect for a romantic weekend or for a family. Even a conference day could be held here comfortably.The accomodation was beautiful, equipped with all the little things you never think to pack or that you would need. The little touches are what make a place stand out from others.For me the hosts are what makes Darling Lodge stand out from the rest of the pack. They were so accomodating and helpful.... see more

                  Oliver and Stephan were excellent hosts during our stay at Darling Lodge. Their attention to detail both at breakfast and in the presentation of our room was fantastic. They were very helpful with information on where to visit in the area and helping us plan our forward route. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and nothing could have been better.
