If you want to stay central of the city, you must chose an other place. It is an 45-60min walk + bussride in to the city. Only negative...

We stayed for 6 lovely nights. The pick up from the airport was very convenient. We had our own room, it was pretty crammed with so many pieces of furniture, but otherwise nice. Room had a fridge and our own bathroom. The staff was super helpful in everyway. We had a tour-package, so we went to a lovely wine tour...

The place has an amazing atmosphere. Really enjoyed it there. The people are awesome and they are not afraid to assist when needed. Loved the greenery! The linen had a stain on it and the parking is the best, but overall I will definitely be back.

The surfers lodge is very relaxed atmosphere that is bery welcoming to guests. Lovely and welcoming reception. Our room was not big. No aircon, just little fan to cool room. No coffee in rooms, must go to kitchen that is not been kept clean by guests and house occupants. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

“They have dorm style rooms and more private rooms. I suggest a private room because it has it's own bathroom but the dorm style rooms are also loads of fun because you get to meet new people!”
