Lily Pond combined for us fantastic service in a special location. Our three teenage children were welcomed just as much as everybody else, despite the fact that all other visitors were couples. The Garden Room was delightful, the food and wine met our exacting standards and we recommend it highly.

We were really impressed with the lodge. The surroundings and the facilities were all faultless. The staff were friendly and incredibly helfpul, helping us to plan our days activities. We felt thoroughly pampered throughout our stay. Dinner was well prepared and served in lovely surroundings starting with drinks in front of a roaring fire.A really nice touch was on chilly evenings to find a hot water bottle warming the bed.Cannot recommend it highly enough - and such good value.

The best stay we found on our Garden Route Trip. Wished to have booked more than just one night, to have a chance to get deeper into the Lily Pond mode. Ambiance, interior, kitchen, hosts - everything top class. We will come again - longer.

We spent two nights here to chill out after a hectic but enjoyable few days on safari. It was much better than our wildest dreams and the setting, accommodation, welcome and culinary delights were above the norm.We would happily recommend Lily Pond to anyone.
