                                  We loved the warm beds and fires on a very cold weekend with snow on the Cederberg

                                  It was extremely warm in the room with no airconditioning, fan or window to open.Establishment Response: Dear Johan en Alida Thank you very much for your review which is much appreciated. As promoted on our website all our rooms are equipped with a fan. We are very sorry that we could not fulfill our quality standards and there was no fan in your room for once. We are glad you enjoyed all other aspects of your stay and wish you a wonderful trip back home. Kind regards,Stephan & Team

                                  Our stay at the Darling Lodge was a very pleasant experience! We really enjoyed Stephan's quiet, not intrusive but warm and friendly approach. There is an honesty bar as well as a decanter of port as a welcome drink or late at night. The breakfast was done to perfection. Our host also recommended and booked a restaurant for the evening in town and is knowledgeable about the surrounding areas.
