A very goo night stay in a lovely town. The accomodation was what we expected. Comfortable and clean. We fell in with the water restrictions. Places to eat are many. Sonja was very helpful. The old town is interesting and ha some grand old buildings.

We had a wonderful stay at Obesa Lodge after a long drive. A beautiful, colourful lodge with all the amenities (ice in the fridge) and Aircons. We enjoyed the afternoon just relaxing in the garden and enjoying the tranqility. It was also safe and secure.
