To whom it may concern,
Our recent stay at Stornoway Lodge was exceptional. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and roomy, equipped with everything you would need.
The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating, going out of their way to assist were they could and to make us feel comfortable. I think the friendly nature of the manager on duty uplifts the staff as well.
We are also extremely impressed at how the lodge takes care of the animals on site.
We would definitely return for a stay and a meal.

Have very mixed feelings about our stay. The place is beautiful, peaceful and the Tent was well appointed, comfortable and clean.
My only complaints would be that the tent did not appear to have been checked before we arrived, we had no running water and no towels. The advert clearly stated that breakfast was included which was not the case, when I pointed this out to the girl at reception she just shrugged and stated that breakfast was not included, she did not seem overly concerned.
Thank heavens for Kholofelo who was a shining light in our trip and assisted us both quickly and in a friendly manner with all the niggles and she organized breakfast for us which was greatly appreciated as we had not brought anything with for breakfast.
Honestly, as beautiful as the place is and despite Kholofelo's speedy and friendly assistance, I am not sure we will come again.

Second time back here and it’s still as nice. Very peaceful and relaxing. Only issue is the Jacuzzi - it was dirty and we had to empty it, clean it and fill it with water from the outside tap. This was not worth it. They need to work on the service as there was no one around to assist with anything - otherwise good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I can highly recommend Stornoway Lodge. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated.

We enjoyed our stay very much on Valentine’s Day. The spacious living area and self-catering facilities makes it a home away from home after a long day's work.

Tranquil and yet so close to the city.
Just what we needed!

We booked Stornoway as it is close to Rhenosterspruit Nature Reserve where our son was having his wedding on a private farm. The accommodation is most spacious and very comfortable. We had booked a superior room and a silo for two couples. Unfortunately the power in the superior room went out on the Friday night, but Paula, the owner, was very quickly on the scene and when the problem was not quickly rectified she moved us into the adjacent unit which was the Executive Suite with Jacuzzi bath, which we then enjoyed for the rest of our stay. Most definitely value for money and highly recommended!

Thank you for having us. Your place was absolutely beautiful and a pleasure to stay at. The rooms are more than spacious with all the necessary amenities for comfortable self catering. A really enjoyable stay.
Terrific hospitality a stone's throw from the action

We thoroughly enjoyed a family reunion at Stornoway Lodge, in a very comfortable spacious accommodation and a delightful setting. Drinks on the verandah with Paula, Alan and family, in front of the beautiful thatched home and overlooking the pond, were the highlight for us adults while canoeing on the pond with kids her age was "the best" for our 9-year old daughter. And there was so much to do in the area, we could have spent another 5 days there. Would do it all over again!
One of the best lodges in South Africa

It was a good stay. The lodge was good. The owners knows what they are doing. They just need to add a restaurant for convenience. Otherwise I was more than happy.
