We've stayed for four nights and liked it very much. Rooms and breakfast are good and staff is very friendly! The location is OK. it is on a big avenue, but there was no noise in the room. The house is also very charming.

Thanks for the great review. I am delighted you feel that way about us at Head South Lodge. There will be some changes to some of the rooms and public areas, so hopefully you will get to enjoy those new changes soon. We do try and maintain good standards, and hopefully we don't slip up too often.

Excellent service and rooms ! The 1920s Deco and furniture choices make the environment unique , welcoming and as though you are staying at a friends house rather than a hotel .

Me and my partner spent couple of days in this place. Well located, clean room, really helpful staff. However, for the price it could have been better.

Thanks for posting this review. I don't understand why you didn't get eggs. We have farm fresh, free range eggs delivered to us every week, and provide scrambled as a matter of course, and most often 'made to order'. Sorry you weren't made aware of this.

The room was really lovely, very comfy bed. I like that there are 2 curtain option. We chose to use the darker curtains and take advantage of a lie in. The breakfast was delicious . We arrived late at night and the on sight manager was very welcoming.
