Spacious room with a lovely view of the ocean. The beach is an easy walk from the lodge and the pub and shops are close by. Our hosts were very friendly and inviting. They served breakfast whenever we wanted and even helped us out with late checkout. I'd recommend for couples looking for a quite peaceful retreat.

There is a lovely pool and braai area. The magnificent beach is just a few minutes walk away and is also dog friendly...

Ironwood Lodge is one of the best guest houses we have visited. The staff is super friendly, food is good and its a relaxing kids friendly environment. I will recommend this holiday destination to anyone who visits the South Coast. We were there with 2 kids and everyone had a super time.

We stay at Ironwood annually and are welcomed warmly and treated superbly by Jim and his team. We would always recommend Ironwood to our friends. The location is very convenient to the golf course at Umdoni as well as the Beach

Clean, comfortable, tastefully furnished room. Beautiful panoramic sea views from balcony. Close to a magnificent unspoilt beach, with rock pools and lovely shells. Jim and his family extremely friendly and the delicious breakfasts are fit for a king. We will definitely return to Ironwood Lodge.
