"Draaihoek Lodge - not what it promised to be!"

"We booked and paid deposit for the Room or Unit Info: Luxury Manor House (1) on arrival we where met by Marietjie Basson the owner,and put into one of the luxury double en suite. The room was very good with a fire place(but very little wood and the wood was wet), you also had to buy xtra wood if you wanted more...it is winter at the moment... a bar fridge with only water in it. We had no tv in the room and also no wi-fi or even cell phone reception. There was not a bath only a shower and the floors was very cold. No slippers and no gowns. We pick the manor house special because we wanted luxury and space to enjoy the 3 days and relax as if at home and do some planning for a trip later the year to Italy. We could not do any of this because of no internet connections. Staff was friendly and always helpful. Breakfast was good. We had dinner the Friday night, good selection on the menu and overall a good dining experience. We did not find the manager very friendly and helpful. If you want a break from technology this is you place, no view from rooms but if you go over the sand dunes you have a wonderful view and can go for a long walk on the beach. It just did not meet our needs for the weekend as we did not get what we booked for and was promised...."

"We booked 3 rooms for the family; all very large and comfortable with arm chairs as well as king size beds and soft cotton sheets. spacious and well equipped bathrooms; couldn't have been more comfortable. Big refreshing pool and a short board walk over the dunes to miles of pristine beach with seals, and wide variety of bird life.  food was plentiful from an imaginative menu and freshly cooked, so waiting a little for cooking time was no chore (no kids!).In short everything you would hope for if you are expecting a quiet comfortable rural retreat."

"The setting on the beach is spectacular! The walks on the beach, relaxing pool area and exquisite dining was so relaxing and felt like pure, glorious serendipity! Falling asleep with the sounds of the waves was extraordinary."

"A unique place in every respect. The huge and clean beach behind the dunes is unforgettable. Spacious and charming accommodation in a beautiful coastal environment. The meals are prepared by the host on the spot; you may bring your own wine."

"It was super clean and luxurious. Food was excellent. Service couldn't be better! A jewel outside a town. The wooden path over the dunes was exciting! We are from Gauteng. If we are ever again in that area we will stay there again for sure."

"The accommodation and food is superb, and the staff are all friendly and helpful. The weather wasn't the best, but it was a great excuse to have the fire roaring in our room, which was a great touch. We stayed in many different places on our three week holiday, and this was one of the best. I would definitely recommend it!"
"Draaihoek Lodge Gasvryheid"

By Johan, South Africa
"Wat n rustige atmosfeer met goeie verblyf, lekker kos, goeie wyn en Weskus-gasvryheid! n Lekker wegbreek om jou batterye te herlaai en te vergeet van die stad se gewoel. Heerlike kaggelvuur in die kamers en n skoon strand wat feitlik jou eie is vir 24 uur van die dag."
