Thornycroft is situated on the banks of the Nahoon River on a country estate and offers good value, budget conscious accommodation for a relaxing stay. Designed for outdoor living , all our guest suites and rooms open onto a lush inner garden courtyard with abundant bird life, creating a tranquil setting.

Not bad, rooms clean. One room had a portable fan with no plug on it, did request a plug got no response. Dinner over cooked. Did not realize it was a dirt road to lodge no good for small car with four adults in it.
Elsa and team were very pleasant and welcoming of our group of 17 and even made certain we were accommodated when we decided to extend our stay for another day. The food was good and constructive criticism was gladly taken. overall a very relaxing haven for any traveller.
Thank you for a very pleasant stay with warm hospitality and good food.
