My wife and I are a young, recently married couple who are into our mountain biking and love the 'great outdoors'.
We initially chose Top Lodge because it was close to All Out Adventures and to be honest because it was really well priced. We were not expecting much, we just wanted a cheap weekend away in the berg where we could get on our mountain bikes.
What we found at Top Lodge completely blew us away and exceeded all our expectations.
Fantastic views, superbly clean, cozy indoor fireplace, spatious, romatically secluded. Wonderful. To add, the owner Gavin is a gracious host, knowledgable of the surrounding area and history and went out of his way to help us in anyway he could.
Top Lodge must be the best kept secret in the berg and a part of me didnt want to write this review, so that we could keep it our little hidden gem. We will be back !
