  • Facilities
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.

The thatched poolside bar and restaurant has a big screen, pool table, table tennis and darts. Our spa offers massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. Steam in the sauna or soak in the Jacuzzi, followed by a splash in the pool. All bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

Enjoy nature walks and fishing on the property or enjoy an adrenalin rush at paintball and go-kart racing nearby.
Our 120-seater function hall is an ideal venue for your wedding or conference.

Thornycroft Camp is just behind the lodge and caters for budget conscious large groups, accommodating a maximum of 80 people in 20-bed dorms.

We are 5 kms from the N2 Amalinda exit, 2 kms of which is well maintained gravel road with concrete slabs for most of the way. Quick and easy access to the highway for most of East London’s main attractions and about 30 minutes from the airport. The nearest beach is about 20 minutes away.

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.
