Our host at Ironwood Lodge could not have been more helpful during our two visits to Ironwood once in April and again during May. We were attending a friends wedding in Pennington so finding this accommodation was perfect for us. The view from our room and balcony over the gardens and ocean were a bonus. Our balcony ws also an excellent spot to view the various visitors to the garden such as birds, butterflies and even monkies.
Jim offers meals at night and whilst the wine list is limited, the food is freshly caught by him and he is an excellent cook.
The accommodation is unique as much of the furniture has been made by Jim himself and there is a story behind each piece. Our room had some interesting aspects and provided everything that we needed and a unique experience that we would not have missed.
Jim provided us with invaluable information on some interesting sights for when we travelled south from Pennington to the Garden Route. He is informative, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
If you want friendly, genuine and personal hospitality then do try Ironwood Lodge.
