              The water supply for showering is pathetic and one can hardly shower. Otherwise very pleasant.

              As the Lodge operates only from solar heating there is no heating or hot water facilities in the rooms - this was not clear when I booked.

              Really nice rooms and very clean and well prepared for our stay. Zelda went the extra mile to assist us. I will not hesitate to make use of this place again... It was money well spent.

              The lodge was clean and convenient. Staff were attentive and polite, making it a great place to stop on our trip.
