We spent one night, on our way down the Garden Route, and was pleased to find accommodation at this very busy time of the year. The Lodge is located right in the heart of Storms River Village, but its large, gorgeous gardens, set it back just enough from the hustle and bustle, to give privacy and peace. The hosts were...

We just spent a single night here during a trip to Port Elizabeth but Sophie and Debbie made a lasting impression with their thoughtfulness. Arriving well before normal check in time did not bother them in the least. We wanted to work in a bit of hiking so they quickly grabbed our bags and sent us out on a trail....

My 2 boys and I stayed over for 2 nights, for an adventure weekend. We stayed in the Otter room. It had more than enough space and 2 bathrooms was great. The room is very well layed out and clean.

We were on a road trip and arrived in Storms river late and tired looking for accomodation. We came across the Village Lodge by chance and we're very lucky to find an excellent self catering lodge in beautiful surroundings with everything we could want and extremely helpful staff.
