                                              It was comfortable accommodation and suited our overnight needs.

                                              Clean and comfortable. Grill staff could do with training. Website directions ridiculous.

                                              Loved sitting on the Deck and having dinner and wine, the mornings are the best as the setting is beautiful and peaceful and quite. The rooms are comfortable, neat and clean.The service of the next door restaurant can be improved.All in all it was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.

                                              Accommodation was neat and clean but far over priced for the type of accommodation offered. Very basic accommodation and very small rooms. No extras provided. We had to stay out of necessity as there were no alternative options in Aliwal North available. Food options is very limited and the Lodge Restaurant did not offer dinner option. Small pub next to lodge which was poor quality. We will not certainly not make use of this lodge again. Aliwal North is in poor state and is not a good option for staying over. Some of the smaller towns close to Aliwal offered much better options.
