As the owners told us they were selling we did notice that the rooms and grounds were looking tired and we hope that Willem & Ingrid get there long deserved break and that the new can inject some fresh life into this wonderful venue. Thank you for taking care of us this weekend

Nothing could come close to the view from Willinga Lodge, overlooking Hartbeespoort Dam. Will and Ingrid are charming and helpful hosts, and the quirky suites and beautiful gardens made for a relaxing and memorable experience - by far our favourite place we've stayed in South Africa. It is all built on an incredibly steep hill, so it is not for...

I booked the stay via travel ground specifically requesting a ground floor or at least easily assessable room with a shower. After all this and a terrible search we found it only to find a very steep very narrow driveway which our Audi really struggled with as we as the one behind us. We could not stay there at all...

Me and the Wife, stayed over for 1 night. Nice fire place in room, relaxing, solid bed, warm shower, birds chirping, we had a nice view of the damn, friendly owners, nice breakfast. No issues. Its a nice getaway slot if you want a break from technology, no tv, wifi etc. Just good ol'fashioned relax and talk to each other...

Absolutely amazing stay at Bali at Willinga Lodge. The hosts are FANTASTIC, helpful and so friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a lovely, quiet and romantic weekend away. The views are stunning, the place is quiet, the rooms are clean and beautifully decorated and I would say it is definitely value for money,

Just what we needed for our anniversary. Will and Ingrid are great hosts and see to just about everything personally. The rooms are clean and tidy, but the beds do need replacing. The view from the Jacuzzi bath is gorgeous and makes one want to stay in the bath with a glass of red wine all day. Breakfast is a...

For our 25th wedding anniversary, we really just needed a special weekend away and after much researching, we settled on Willinga Lodge. From the first phone call until our goodbyes, Will & Ingrid were exceptional hosts. The Palm Suite, with built-in Spa Bath overlooking the Hartesbeespoort Dam is a couple's paradise and the peace & tranquility coupled with the outdoor...
