About Westlodge Bed & Breakfast
“Westlodge” is an architecturally designed, beautifully appointed, Victorian style home situated in the afforested, tranquil surroundings of the village of Graskop in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Whilst “Westlodge” it is our home, it was designed to offer bed and breakfast facilities to discerning travellers and for those seeking above average accommodation in five stylish en-suite bedrooms.
Four of the bedrooms have satellite TV; hospitality trays with rusks/biscuits and a selection of beverages and refreshments on request.
Our rooms also have oil fired heaters with fans in the two first floor bedrooms for the rare occasions when they are needed. Situated at an elevation of 1 400m above sea-level, we have a very mild climate with a constant cool breeze coming to us from the escarpment a mere 750m away
All the rooms have white 100% cotton Percale linen on the beds; white towells with pure silk duvets in our Garden (Fleur-de-Lis) suites.
When we say we offer “luxury” accommodation we back up the claim with a 4 Star grading from the South African Tourism Grading Council whilst the prestigious Portfolio Bed and Breakfast publication have accredited us as “luxury” accommodation.
We offer secure, (electronically controlled main entrance gate) off-street parking under a shade cloth carport.
