    Thank you for your great review of our lodge. The 2 days were full of humour. We very much enjoyed the evening where your trout had centre place. :)

    We stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent in England. Our hosts, Michael and Heather Johnson, where wonderfully friendly and engaging and the facilities were first rate. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom facilities were excellent, and the breakfast first class. Highly recommended.
