As a tour Operator it is essential for us that we can recommend places like St. Francis Golf Lodge. Elma, the Manager takes care of the premises as it would be her own. Thjis is always the best sign for Service Quality. We are happy to work together with Elma and her Team.

Just brilliant: lovely rooms, well appointed and modern feel to them, a lovely eating and sitting area and a manager, Elma, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Would rush back if my wife had not found the golf course a tad on the tough side!

The play and stay was excellent. The service great. Only the rooms are too small for two persons. Not enough cupboard space and no privacy for bathroom. Just a wall with no ceiling separating the room and the bathroom/toilet area. Even married couples would find this uncomfortable.

Loved the stay, and to wake up to the view over the course and St. Francis on a windless day, was spectacular. Great accommodation, and very friendly and caring service. Will definitely be back, to relax and unwind, around the on-site swimming pool.

The property is situated in thr St Francis Links Golf Estate. From the rooms you have views onto the golf course and out to the sea, with the whole of St Francis Bay stretching out before you. The rooms are of a high standard and the service from all staff is 5 star. Highly recommended and good value for money

I will recommend this place to everyone I know! Golfer or non. The food is excellent - especially the SANTA BURGER. Highly recommended to all food lovers. The staff will literally bend over backwards to accommodate any request.
