                              I enjoyed the room I got. I would just like to express my disappointment in the actions of the owner, I had invited my relatives over for a braai as my sister was about to get married the next day and the owner was standing by the braai area reminding me of what time guests must leave, and the time was a little over 8 pm. We did not make noise, I played did not play any music, all we did was have conversations and eat. I had a couple of beers but last I checked its allowed at a bnb? If this lodge does not want guests to invite people why is there a braai area and why did they not make it know...

                              Very nice place to stay.  Great people!  The bathroom in the Pool Suite just needs a serious upgrade.  New suite is very nice and modern.
