                  I was very impressed with my stay at Lancaster Lodge. The hospitality was great and the lodge is set in a beautiful environment. I will definitely book in again.

                  We found the establishment beyond our expectations. The setting of the lodge in the mountain above the Town of Vryheid add to its charm. From the friendly welcome to the splendid clean and comfortable rooms and the 5star breakfast, you know you are well cared for. Your senses are in for a treat too, as you are close to two waterfalls. The sound of mountain streams and birdsong compete to let you feel relaxed and refreshed. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.
