The lodge is very centrally located. Very spacious and clean rooms. They serve a really great breakfast. Service is outstanding from the checkin to the house service to management supervision. Will definitely visit again.

This is a unique peaceful boutique hotel, consisting of only 16 luxurious rooms, each one named after a famous race horse. Each room and bathroom is really spacious. I stayed in one, which looked out over a polo field, where horses were trained each morning. First class service in every aspect of the hotel, from the reception to the restaurant...

The place looks amazing. Absolutely amazing. The whole stable concept of the rooms is quite charming. Breakfast was on point and the views, wonderful. I would definitely go back. The check-in took a bit too long though. But overall, I'm happy with my stay at this place.
