The service was excellent. Everything was ready when we came, the owner made us feel welcome from the first moment. The waiters are well trained and very helpful. Lovely clean spacious room and bathroom, with everything and more, than you need in the kitchenette. I just loved the peaceful atmosphere where you can venture around on the scenic property, truly...

It is always unfortunate to hear that any of our guests did not enjoy their visit at Hornbill Lodge. Unfortunately when guests use our facilities for more than 4 hours, swim and eat and we receive empty plates back, it is then normal protocol to call our Security and Police to attend to the matter lawfully if our guests refuse...

Very nice & shady campsites. Owner checked on our wellbeing every night. Abblutions modern and clean. Good value for money restaurant. Dogs on site are excellent on alarming you about unwanted visitors in the campsite and chasing them away. Overall stay was very pleasant.

We stayed at the resort for three nights on bed & breakfast basis. Our room had a double bed, on suite bathroom (bath/shower combination), aircon, coffee making facilities & satelite TV. No fridge. Neat room. Plenty of animals on property: staffies, Jack Russells, worshonde, pot belly pig and rabbit, Turkey, peacock and chickens in a cage. We enjoyed the animals.... More

The owners are very helpful and attentive to the good upkeep of this naturally beautiful resort. Camping in this tranquil environment is exactly what we were looking for, however, we were harassed throughout the weekend with bad elements from a hidden Shack across the road who eventually robbed us of our cellphone and binoculars. This after many attempts to chase... More

Stay was comfortable and with all the necessary requirements in the lodge. Though some areas in lodge required repairs. Owner was extremely friendly and helpful. Outdoors of Lodge is great - allows for hiking near river. Only thing was the loud sound of the water reticulation or heating device next to main bedroom could keep one up at night.

This place to say the least was one of the most outdated hotels I have ever stayed at. I walked into the room and felt like I walked back into the 70's. Seriously in need of updates!! The water was cold even after trying to run it for a little while but still keep an eye on water usage. We... More

I couldn't possibly have been in any worser state then when I arrived at Hornbill. The stress from the break of my marriage had been too much and starting to effect me physically.
