My wife and I stayed two nights at the Old Thatch Lodge in September. The garden is a pleasant spot with lots of trees. Our room was decorated with lots of interesting artifacts that Karin had collected over the years. The room had a thatched roof and was spacious and quiet. A few more window blinds would have provided more privacy. Karen was entusiastic and very welcoming. She gave us directions for the De Hoop Nature reserve suggesting we take the back roads for an interesting look at the country side. The ferry crossing on the way was a real treat.
Breakfast was ample and we stuggled to finish it.
If you don't like dogs then perhaps this is not the place for you.
