We recently spent two nights at Rooderandt Hillside Lodge, it was something totally different, and a real getaway.With very comfortable bed, small lounge area with a lovely fireplace which we used both nights. The views down the valley were wonderful which you can see from your huge balcony area.The hostess was very friendly and gave us a huge farmhouse breakfast both mornings. We would recommend, this as a stop over to anyone.
