My partner and I came here for the weekend and booked the "Luxury Suite". There was nothing luxury about it. Aside from the fact the room was outdated and very worn, it was also filthy! Our towels had a horrible smell of sweat and clearly had not been replaced for our arrival. There were old rusk wrappers in my bedside...

Business trips require me to stay over in PLZ on a regular basis. I have visited this guest lodge twice in recent months. The lodge is comfortable and the rooms are airconditioned Beds are comfortable. Food in the restaurant is fair to good. I would certainly recommend the lodge.

Very nice stay between all the greenery and good service. The location is close to nearby shopping malls and easy accessible. The shuttle service from the lodge to the plantation is a good addition and gives the lodge a big thumbs up with regards to driving.

This beautifull compound lays a bit out of town. The staff is very gentle and helpfull and every request or remark is immediately addressed. The breakfast is nearly perfect with a big choice. The lodges are perfect. One remark : more seats at the swimmingpool

Lovely room with crisp white linen was very welcome after a car-journey from Cape Town. Staff very helpful. The tropical gardens at the lodge beautiful. Breakfast scrumptious. Perhaps more choices in the mini-bar in the room i.e. Castle Lite beer would have been great.
