We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. We thought that the rooms were excellent - massive with traditional furniture in them that felt very much in line with the area.
There were very nice gardens and swimming pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The lodge is out of the main town but just a short drive away.
My only complaint was the food, the breakfast was OK but below par of all the other places we have stayed at. Evening meal was below average e.g soggy veg, and so I would not reccomend eating there. We went to a cocktail bar and restaurant in Oudtshoorn that the hotel reccommeded and that was great (can't remember the name but it had advocado in the title).
