After our arrival in Johannesburg, we rented a car and drove approx. 2 hours to Bethal.We stayed in The Lodge for one night. For us all was perfect. It was no problem, that we arrive a little bit late. And we were happy toget a meal in the evening in the house. The people and staff were very fiendly. We ordered the room without breakfast, but it was alsolute no problem toorder breakfast when we check-in in the evening. We can fully recommend The Lodge and would stay there again, when we will be in South Africa.Gisela, 53 from Germany
