Excellent stay. Very very helpful and caring managing team. No problem was too much for them in spite of Eskom power failure for 3 days. I thank Neil and William for their perseverance to solve my vehicle problems. Food was excellent and plentiful.

My partner and I visited during the first snowfall of the winter. What a lovely magical place! The welcome was warm, the food delicious, the rooms decorated with attention to detail and the views and walks were spectacular! The road is best managed with a 4x4 (given that it had snowed) - but I'd imagine that in good weather a...

My husband and I stayed at Tenahead Lodge for 2 nights, but wished we had booked for longer. We had a large and very comfortable room with full en suite, which was made all the more cosy at night by a welcoming fire. There are magnificent views throughout the lodge, the food was excellent and the service outstanding. My horse...

What a amazing awesome experience traveling along not only the highest pass in RSA but undoubtedly most beautiful views you can imagine, to reach probably one of the top five boutique Hotels in the country. An experience to remember for the rest of my life!

We were once again very happy to visit Tenahead Lodge! Superb location that might be a bit of a challenge to reach with a normal sedan. Excellent food and wonderful service throughout our stay! Highly recommended!

Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent house keeping. Beautiful location. We will return for sure. The road is rough but that that adds to the attraction. You will not get better anywhere else. We rate it 10 out of 10.

The whole overnight stay was great. We loved the setting and after doing some epic 4X4 mountain passes it was a wonderful indulging experience. The heartening fire in the bedroom after a delightful dinner was a wonderful surprise. We would highly recommend staying here.

As remote as you can get - an excellent lodge with spectacular views. Well worth the drive to Tenahead. The service was great, staff friendly and competent. Do the walk up to the Cape Vulture kitchen, more than worth it! Fishing was excellent as well.

The service we received was not great - rather a mediocre welcome. The room was lovely, but we were unable to read in bed as the bedside lamps were totally inadequate to do so. The log fire was most welcome on the chilly night. The food was average but very nicely presented. Strange though, that the room rate included breakfast...

Tenahead mountain modge is placed in an idyllic setting, with fantastic staff. And, it is definitely lots of fun getting there. We will definitely be back when we need an escape from city life. A true gem of a retreat hidden away in the Eastern Cape Highlands.
