This charming home from home is absolutely spot on and not just in the obvious things like comfortable beds, crisp linen, spotless modern bathrooms, the latest TV and stereo systems, elegant decor etc. They also got it dead right in the details - such as fresh flowers, beach towels and bag, insect repellent, fresh daily biscuits and chocolates, and even...

Comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated lodge with some special extra touches like fresh flowers, chocolates, ground coffee and real milk. The elevated position means that the views are lovely too.

Keep it simple. That's what we learn as we grow up. Brenton Lodge is truly a grown up in the business of 'guest housing'. Beautifully appointed chalets, with all the little things taken care of: great amenities, serviceable bathroom, real milk in the fridge, real coffee in the jar, tasty breakfast and that bed. Oh that bed. I did not... More

Superb place to stay. The accommodation was excellent and attention to detail, such as providing sun block in the bathrooms for guests and other small touches was very thoughtful. Spacious accommodation, and breakfast provided was second to none would not hesitate to recommend.
