Grahamstown, Frontier Country - Accommodation
Coombs Lodge in Grahamstown
The main complex is a stone and thatch bush lodge, with two bedrooms set adjacent to the main Lounge and Living area, connected by thatched walk-ways. Nestled in amongst Eastern Cape valley-bushveld the Lodge teems with a variety of bird species and small game. The core living area has a comfortable lounge and dining-room, an open-plan kitchen, a sheltered braai area and a shaded deck looking onto the Lodge pool.
Accommodation comprises a twin and double room with en suite showers and toilets at the main Lodge.
The lodge is set on 80 ha and is stocked with small game. We are not a Big 5 type reserve with lions snapping at your heels, champagne game drives and the like - it's do-it-yourself territory. We are self-catering only, and guests are responsible for all their own cooking and entertainment around the pool and braai.
The Lodge is easily accessible to Grahamstown and its schools and University and it is an ideal venue for hosting small special functions and family gatherings.

Reviews for Coombs Lodge
"What a fantastic place. "
Full marks to the team. We had an Australian visitor with us and has still not stopped talking about it.The Lodge is out of this world as is the Housekeeper, Angel and the sleeping accommodation. Our Australian guest loved his "Tree House" as he called it. If you want peace and quite, no cellphones, internet, TV or radio this is the place for you. In the bush away from everything.Jeremy your host is really great.
Coombs Lodge was a pleasant surprise to us.(3 archers) I can not understand how one can stay in a reserve and such a beautiful environment for the price. Coombs Lodge served all my needs and I will stay there for all my sports tournaments in Grahams Town in future. Special thanks to Jeremy Allan whom made us feel welcome. The tranquility of Coombs lodge and the Archery targets provided by Jeremy contributed to the Gold and Silver medals taken by us in the Senior Mens Recurve Archery Division.(National Indoors Archery Tournament)Thank you very much! "We'll be back...soon"RegardsJohan Steyn
