This lodge is a rather quaint place. Great for a break from the hussel and bassel of life... perfect place to get in touch with the inner YOU... The most spectacular views not forgetting the most pleasant night skies Staff are extremely friendly and helpful...I will definitely recommend this place and most certainly will be making another holiday to Earthrise Mountain lodge

I felt very much at home. Wanita and staff are a pleasure to stay with. Discussed the road with Wanita, my Merc Sedan is not made for this road, did it 8 times=210km!Some self-help like draining the water puddles, filling the worst bumps with sand/gravel/building rubble would help visitors, the farmers as well, there is enough labour force available, R 100 for a day"s work with supervision by a pensioner would help!

Great spot i enjoyed it. Just what i think they could do a bit better is is to have a dustbin in the room and also a fan in the room and our bed light didnt work.They must just invest a bit of money in maintenance. But it was a great place to be and the staff were friendly.
