Well located, beautiful and the service was great. The self catering chalets have great privacy, are well kitted with plenty of space. The cleaning staff were not very friendly, but did their job efficiently and well!

The lodge is set up 140 or so steps...but its worth it. The views are fabulous from the veranda. The accommodation is lovely quality but it is definitely the view that gives Boardwalk Lodge its value.

This place should be called treehouse up the hill. Parking is a total nightmare, uncomfortably steep. One of the guests parked behind us struggled to get out and complained about the same thing. Linen had stains, just disgusting. We couldn't get the shower to work, once again, fellow guests complained about same thing. We left a day before our scheduled...

We are terribly sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are very open about the fact that we are situated on the side of a hill and that there are many stairs to climb to get to most of our chalets, and therefore parking is at an angle. We appreciate all feedback (good or...

Excellent location, and was probably a great place once, but compared to other places we stayed at on the Garden Route at this price range, the accommodation was somewhat sub par. The breakfast was tasty, but limited selection and the machine coffee again, is not usually encountered at this price point, and was quite poor. Excellent views though, and great,...

The Boardwalk Lodge was ok. Unfortunately My bathroom was smelling very bad. WE had a great support from the staff for finding alternative activities because the weather was bad and we couldn't go to the beach.

We liked our one night stay at the Boardwalk Lodge in a huge duplex house (2 bedrooms with ensuite bathroom), great living room area, 3 balconies and a nice kitchen. The balconies offered great views of the ocean and the valley, and a wonderful sunset.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very good value for money. Breakfast is good. Staff are very helpful, accommodating and friendly. We wanted to braai one afternoon and the staff provided all that was needed. The view is one of the best and the roaring waves at night is calming. Will definitely return.

Excellent location (for those who drive by themselves)!!! Close to many atractions - little and cozy restaurants and bars - with great view from the bedrooms. The staff were efficient, and very friendly!!! Resumindo: tivemos ótimos momentos passeando por essa região, e adoramos ter nos hospedados nessa pousada bem localizada, e agradável. Thank´s a lot!!!!
