My partner and I have been travelling for two months, and have stayed at over twenty places. After each stay, we have ranked the accommodation, giving a score out of 10. Amber Guest Lodge is only the second place we stayed at that scored a perfect 10.
The guest house is beautiful - the rooms spacious and nicely decorated, in a simple, modern style. Our room had a king size bed, which was very comfortable. The room had a fridge, a safe, a fan, a tv and DVD player, and the hosts had DVDs that you could borrow (which we did). There was free wifi which worked perfectly. Each room opens up to a lovely patio area, with a pool and incredible view.
The host was great, and gave us lots of useful advise for things to while we were there, restaurants to go to, etc.
The breakfast was amazing - especially the fruit salad that was prepared each morning. Best breakfast of our trip for sure.
The only thing that is lacking is AC in the rooms - but this wasn't a problem at all, as even the very hot days cooled down a lot at night. Our room never felt too warm.
A car is basically needed, as it is a 5-10 minute driving distance to the centre of town. This wasn't a problem for us, and presumably wouldn't be for most people, travelling along the Garden Route.
Overall, the place is incredible, and the value excellent. We loved it so much that we added a third night. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.
