We stayed at the Lodge last July when the weather was extremely hot. Room very good, nice shower room. Only draw-back was that the window did not open very wide and no air conditioning in the room, so I found it very uncomfortable to sleep. Had to walk across the courtyard to breakfast which was no problem. Breakfast extremely good. Evening meals also good.
