Only very slight drawback - may be dangerous to get out into fast moving traffic - solved by advice to turn left and turn around in wide gateway a bit further on the right. A beautiful place, gardens are spectacular. Very quiet.
Beautiful view, peaceful location, very clean and comfortable accommodation.
Rainbow Lodge is easy to find and central to a range of facilities and locations.
The accommodation is comfortable and has all you need. The view over the upper Sandspit harbour is magnificent
I enjoyed the beautiful views from my room, and found the location to be ideal for visiting nearby attractions.
