From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Laetitia went out of her way to make sure we had everything. Our room did not have an ensuite bathroom but it was close by. We were able to use the kitchen and lounge. Our hosts were gracious enough to say that they would braai our meat and make roosterbroodjies for dinner. Was a very lekker dinner. Thank you

It's a clean and tidy place, the manager is very friendly and helpful, I got a good night's rest and was on the road again early.

Hollywood lodge is an absolute treasure. I felt incredibly warmly welcomed and learnt so much about the history of the building but also the people of the area from Letitia.

We chose Steinkopf as a convenient place to overnight on the way to Namibia fromCape Town. It enables one to arrive at the border post early the nextday.Our room in Hollywood was very small and basic but did have a fridge, kettle,toilet, basin and shower. The hostess is extremely accommodating, and makes herkitchen, lounge and dining room available to guests and providescrockery and glasses. We had an enjoyable meal using our own ingredientscooked in her kitchen and eaten in her dining room.
