The Lodge
Ranked #1 of 7 Bethal B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 March 2017

The Lodge is exceptionally well maintained. Friendly staff and good management. The food exceeded all expectations. This was a last minute booking which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. A perfect place for an overnight stay.

Our last night after spending 5 weeks in Southern Africa was spent at The Lodge. We were welcomed by the proprietor Kevin to the perfect place to rest before making our final approach to O. R. Rambo Airport for our return flights home.

This was a sanctuary for us after our weeks of travel in some pretty gritty places. The location allowed us the advantage of being a short distance (only 2 hrs..)from the airport thus avoiding Johannesburg. the room was beautifully decorated and the restaurant was superb. The proprietor Kevin put together an insightful itinerary for us which allowed us to check our rental car in and fill our day with some final sightseeing using public transportation rather than waiting around the airport all day. We could not have possibly come up without such a plan.

Thank you Kevin. We appreciate you efforts. What a great host.

Room Tip: The two rooms we looked at were both impeccable and I have no doubt that all the room are great.

The whole set up is great with beautiful surrounds and great rooms which are designed with privacy in mind. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a large flat screen TV screen. All facilities are supplied in the rooms and I can certainly recommend this establishment
