Nice lodge with very friendly owners (speaks German and English). swell has more attractions than expected.
Good welcome, great dogs, very clean and well maintained. Cooked breakfast sparse, plenty of toast and cereal plus coffee.
Absolutely fantastic stay! Filip and Marion are fabulous hosts and we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.
We have enjoyed our stay at Marula lodge. The owners have been very friendly, helpful and have given a lot of tips to make the stay joyfully. Thank You Marion and Filip.
Booked here on a whim, not expecting much, and was blown away! Had a fantastic stay for three nights, good breakfast in the mornings, nicely decorated place; but the best parts were the gorgeous well cared for garden (including pool) and friendly hosts. Decent room with all the expected amenities; comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Highly recommended!
