We had dinner at Donkin Country Lodge. The food was absolutely excellent. Lekker 'boere kos'. The lamb chops, bobotie and soet pampoen were to die for. Our next stop will include a sleep over as well.

We stayed in the flat - it was clean and had all we required. We had dinner and breakfast at the Resturant and the food was good home style cooking. Definitely adequate for a night stop over whilst traveling.

Stayed over our 2nd time in 20 years brought back many memories. Will recommend as the best in town. Reception was quick, rooms average, parking onsite. Teenage boys enjoyed the onsite gym. We had a relaxing time next to pool the afternoon after a long drive.
