We arrived at Lavender Hills at short notice and were warmly greeted by our Host Sharon and shown to our room Augusta...the room was immaculate with all the necessary amenities. The establishment had other bookings from a golfing group which appears to be its target market.Their is a vast array of units to suit all group sizes from couples to a unit which can sleep 23.One constructive criticism would be if DSTV is not available then dont waste time and money putting a TV in the room...it just dosnt get utilised.

Our stay was comfortable, the rooms are clean and neat, and our host friendly. Not bad for the traveller looking for overnight accommodation. There are no restaurant or pub facilities on site making this a strictly self catering venue. The attention to detail is somewhat lacking in terms of equipment and bathroom toiletries however, making this a 2 star venue at a 3 star price.
