Every now and then the accommodation you’ve booked doesn’t turn out to be the little haven that was promised. What’s described as a “rustic, lively and friendly B&B” could translate to: there is a hole in the ceiling; the bedsprings sound like they’re made of mice and watch out for the creepy man in the bushes with binoculars. Get value for money and spend a night somewhere pleasant with today’s Groupon: One night’s accommodation for two, including a continental breakfast at the beautiful Calissa Lodge for R299.
Nestled amongst glorious old trees like a diamond in the rough; Calissa Lodge is a luxury guest house that is both gorgeous and homely. With stylish living areas stocked with interesting reads and crisp and clean white furniture, Calissa Lodge whispers French country décor without looking like a cheesy themed guest house. Each bedroom is lavishly decorated and boasts unique little touches that make each and every one unique. Stretch out and relax on the 100% cotton linen in a fluffy bathrobe and enjoy the absence of noise, strange neighbours and bug-related woes.
After a snooze so peaceful that it rivals a certain sedated princess; enjoy a scrumptious continental breakfast in the beautiful dining hall or if weather permits, under the shady trees by the swimming pool.
Say cheerio to morbid motels and guest houses which have the exterminator on speed dial and make Calissa Lodge your one and only option.
Check-in fact: When the Birds of a Feather lodge hosted the annual pillow fight of 1999; one contestant got carried away and used a toaster to knock out her opponent. There were no more annual pillow fights, nor guests.
