Property badly signposted. The hedge has grown over sign. To enter from Keurboom Road as one has to half enter then make a further turn and only then can one turn into the property.And the same on the way out. The Shower was good but it is impossible to stand in front of the basin and shave. One has to stand side on. Just not enough space. There is no table to speak of to eat at. The present table is only big enough for one person.The gardener urinated outside our window and on complaining I was told that he does it often.!!!!!!The bed was good but Keurboom road is very busy all the time. If you leave the window open then you cannot sleep for the noise.The price paid was far to high for what we got.

Drey Lodge is a large house a few minutes walk from Newlands. It is divided into four separate letting areas, some of which can be joined together to make room for larger parties. Ours was the largest of these four areas. The kitchen had plenty of pans and utensils. There was just about everything you could want for a self-catering unit with the possible exception of AC and a dishwasher. There is another review which says that the suite needs an upgrade. It is true that it has seen better days, however the crucial thing is that it is there and it works. There is a 10m saltwater pool. Wifi slow but ok. Attitude of staff quite excellent. Nothing too much trouble.

The Suite was very dark and dingy. It smelled musty and was in need of an upgrade. I realize we were there over a long weekend however, they never emptied our dustbin or replenished the complimentary coffee. In fact they didn't even give us enough toilet paper. The plugs tripped and there was no-one there to switch the power back on. A very disappointing place to stay.
