Great set up for camping. Super showers and wash facilities. Lovely walk up a hill for an amazing sunrise. The campsite are well equipped with good brai facilities, power and light. Good space between campsites also. Well worth a stay.

This lodge is not so extraordinary because of its rooms or pool, but by its oldtimers standing around everywhere providing very nice foto motives and views. A good point to go to fish river canyon. Recommended

The reception, bar and restaurant has a theme of old vehicles from various countries and vintages. Interesting but does not add to the dining experience. Menu is quite extensive and reasonable quality. Rooms are in courtyard formations and are clean but furniture is tired!! Average!!

Smiling, helpful, efficient staff. Extra service requests such as freezing our cold packs were happily done. Comfortable rooms. Quirky decor with old cars, motorcycles and other machines. We sat beside the Mercedes ambulance in the restaurant. Food was very good. Best croissants ever for breakfast, included

We camped at this facility. The ablutions were clean and modern. The swimming pool is awesome - the pub is absolutely fantastic with so much passion going into the decor. The staff are friendly and the food is good. If you are a motorhead - you'll love this place!
