Warm reception! Excellent room. With an amazing view of the lily ponds which give the Hotel its name. We had a peaceful stroll and then sat on a bench watching the lilies. The evening meal was very good. A vegetarian option for me. Breakfast was an excellent buffet with a freshly cooked hot meal of choice. We enjoyed our stay...

It's an exceptional Guest Lodge set in wonderfully tranquil surroundings. Maria and Tony (who manage the property) have put together a great team (special thanks to...

We spent a delightful week at Lilyponds last month. After travelling around the country it was a great place to relax . Our room overlooked the eponymous ponds - it really is a beautiful setting. The buildings are modern but ambience is achieved by a light airiness and local artefacts. The managers, Tony and Maria , are charming, informative and...

The Lily Pond Country Lodge is just what the doctor ordered - all rooms opening out onto their own patio area over looking the lily pond and surrounded by native bush. The decor is contemporary and the carefully chosen African artifacts on the walls a delight. We had a 'basic' garden room, which was better than many hotels superior rooms....

Our first lovely room had a roof leak during a downpour so we were upgraded at no additional expense. We loved Faith, Joseph, Jonathan, and Carol. Tony and Maria (managers) were helpful and informative. We had dinner at Lily Pond every night. Delicious and elegant. The level of service was so good it included washing our car at night.
