Our visit here has to be the highlight of our trip. A huge "thank you" to Elma & ALL her staff for a truly wonderful stay. The lodge is a haven of peace, beautifully equipped & the service is great. The rooms are lovely with a thatch roof which makes it feel much more authentic. They supply complimentary afternoon tea...

Perfect lodge with perfect services in a small town with pretty houses and lovely beaches. A must for everybody who likes challenging golf courses. The golf course was in perfect shape and not too crowded.

As a tour Operator it is essential for us that we can recommend places like St. Francis Golf Lodge. Elma, the Manager takes care of the premises as it would be her own. Thjis is always the best sign for Service Quality. We are happy to work together with Elma and her Team.

Just brilliant: lovely rooms, well appointed and modern feel to them, a lovely eating and sitting area and a manager, Elma, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Would rush back if my wife had not found the golf course a tad on the tough side!

The play and stay was excellent. The service great. Only the rooms are too small for two persons. Not enough cupboard space and no privacy for bathroom. Just a wall with no ceiling separating the room and the bathroom/toilet area. Even married couples would find this uncomfortable.

Loved the stay, and to wake up to the view over the course and St. Francis on a windless day, was spectacular. Great accommodation, and very friendly and caring service. Will definitely be back, to relax and unwind, around the on-site swimming pool.
