Thank you for another great stopover. What a beautiful place to enjoy the Harkerville area. Staff is friendly as always. Affordable, neat log cabins with safe areas for kids to run around and have fun while adults take a bit of a breather on the deck.

Had an enjoyable stay. Staff very welcoming and helpful. We were on tour with 15 teens and they were able to relax and enjoy their stay with minimal supervision. Facilities are great for group events.

We had a great stay, staff were friendly and efficient and very accommodating. We left at 2am on the morning of our departure and your kitchen staff kindly made us padkos instead of the breakfast! Its these little things that will make us return. Overall the lodge was great value, was clean and comfortable.

Great place to stay :) ... Second time staying at this place and both times impressed by their service and great venue. It is only 20km away from Knysna which is awesome and very close to a Sasol if you need a quick evenin snack. They have a nice tuckshop at the location which also sells beers and other beverages....

Would never book here again. We were not given what we were promised at booking. The rooms are small, the beds uncomfortable and overall the joined wooden cabins are very noisy. Did not get much rest or peace.

What a great great place. Enjoyed a one night stay over at this relaxing lodge. Friendly staff members. Close to everything. The cabin we stayed in was neat and clean. Prices include a delicious breakfast with a great view. Compared to what of the other places close by charges for a overnight stay, this is definitely worthwhile.

Was nice to stay there, just i think they can upgrade the safety, especially at the bar entrace by the stairs, also the way white campers treats colourd campers with disrespect and thinks the place is only for them.

The whole area is secure and safe. Great grassed sites with some shade, electricity and braai facilities. Sites and bins cleaned daily. Good amenities, pool, lapa braai area, small shop / bar / games room. Plenty of space for the kids to play.
