The place we were originally booked at had messed up our reservation, so it was Elna to the rescue. We couldn't have asked for better! Everything about the place was perfect! We will definitely be back. Thanks Elna!

A wonderful place to stay over on our trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Green gardens and lovely pool. We and our dogs had a very warm welcome & we spent a lovely evening on the stoep of our cottage.

We had a wonderful stay at Elna's Country lodge in the Schoemanspoort area. She was helpful and the place was perfect. There's everything one needs, including aircon and a fan. Very neat, nice pool, beautiful location and more. Thank you Elna! We will Definitely come back if we're in the area.

Very nice place, with a beautiful swimming pool and a nice braai. The host was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Although the road was nearby our lodge, there was no traffic at night and we had a good sleep.

We stayed at De Poort for a night while we took a pit stop on the Garden Route. When we first walked in, we were absolutely mesmerised by the beauty of this guest house. And then.. we met Elma, one of the owners. What an amazing woman she is! Elma constantly went out of her way to make our stay...

We stayed one night at De Poort Country Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the outset Elna was efficient and helpful, and assisted us in securing bookings at nearby restaurants and tourist attractions. Our room was simple and very clean, and was equipped with everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. De Poort is a great place to use as...
