Great place- location was good (10min walk to waterfront) and there is a tour operator office within the lodge which is great for advice/info. Aaron was a great host & made us feel very much at home. Although we were the only guests at the time, I can only imagine the more people hear about this place, the more popularity... More

Stayed at the lodge as part of a medical elective. Was only 10 minutes walk from the centre, very clean room and Aaron was very helpful and friendly with us! Would stay again and recommend it. Was quiet with no other guests, but did not take away from the experience. Tom

Friendly home from home. A spacious guest house, we had a large room, big enough for all 5 of us, plus bags. Shared bathroom wasn't an issue as we were the only people staying.
