I have been to the lodge on a few occasions for meals and drinks at the restaurant. I always wondered when and where they were putting up the accomodation area because I thought it was going to be a lovely place to have a get away.
I found out while browsing that they had actually set up the lodge and had cottages available.
Arrived late afternoon after making a call early in the week to check availability.
The rooms are just lovely. Set up on raised wooden cottages. They are tastefully decorated, the bathroom beautiful, with twin rain showers and claw foot bathtub.
They have an option of a fire being lit for you if the room gets too cold. There is a little kitchenette that allows for coffee making and a small fridge too. Each has a small verandah that one can sit out in and relax while reading, having a drink or just napping.
The cottages are arranged in a way that there are those that are closer to the dam, and those a level higher. There are beautiful glass decorations along the path to the accomodation area, Dan I believe they are going to keep changing the place with new ideas.
The only problem I noted was the stench from the dam, and the mosquitoes. Yes, each cottage has an electric trap and insect repellant spray but I believe a net would be very useful in preventing the mozzie nuisance.
The breakie was served by polite staff, and on being received during check in, the service was commendable.
Noted that we didn't get a clear indication of check out time, but the staff were so accommodating it was refreshing.
I would definitely recommend the lodge and would also definitely make another visit.
They have special rates for residents, great plus for that!!!!,
