Wow, this place is fanstastic. Nested in a very green, safe and clean neighborhood. Has a quiet beautiful yard with swimming pool. About 10-15mins drive from downtown on the N2, perfect if you have a car to stay out of the city in the pleasant suburbs. Very large rooms at very reasonable price. And the food... ah... the food was reeeally good, both breakfast and dinner! Highly recommended!

It was PERFECT. I stayed there for three days, the rooms were neat, the service excellent and the ladies were very helpful when it came to getting a taxi. The bed sheets and the beds were clean and the pillows soft. I was very happy.

Excellent accommodation, great facilities and extremely friendly and helpful staff. It was not a bother to Leon that we arrived after midnight. The breakfast was sumptuous and the evening meal was delicious. We even used the braii one evening and sat beside the pool eating our steak dinner by candlelight. We want to go there again.

We had a very pleasant apartment which was clean and had a wonderful bathroom. The childrens room was separate and without air con so maybe too hot for adults in summer time. Pinelands is a nice area about 9 km from waterfront. But you can travel around very easily and we were well placed. Breakfasts and evening meals were very good at Forest Drive Lodge. They are very accomdating and friendly at the Lodge and thanks for all the small touches that made the stay so pleasant.
