Our accommodation(s)

Peppers on the Point is a classic lodge with irresistible charm. The two-story mansion has been lovingly refurbished to retain its timeless appeal and character. Each suite has an inviting lounge area, ensuite bathroom and spa bath. Part of its charm is a large communal lounge with open fireplace, a timber-panelled dining room and elegant billiard room. Formerly a family home, many of the antiques remain which combined with modern luxury furnishings provide a comfortable and relaxing retreat.

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

We spent two nights here with our 8month old son and absolutely loved it! What was originally planned for our babymoon, due to COVID, became a family escape and we loved every minute. Nothing was too difficult for the staff, they even set up a private dinner for us in the library close to our room. The food was great, the rooms unique and lovely, and the property was beautiful to stroll around. And ABSOLUTELY amazing views!! Thank you so much.

Lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time with us at Peppers on the Point. Congratulations on your 8 month old! I will pass on your lovely comments to the team. Kind regards Ann

New Ownership

I heard there is new ownership. Same fantastic great host on-site manager, who is well-mannered, down-to-earth, and professional. My rating reflects the current value and customer experience compared to older reviews. Breakfast was a large portion and high quality. The spa was in-service and needs to be a couple of degrees hotter, but a nice outdoor evening setting. Room and boutique decor was beautiful and comfortable. Beats a boring hotel room! Looked like new owners(?) were looking at remodeling... I suggest not to and keep prices similar.

Hi Joseph. No new ownership. The owner is the same since the 70's. Her name is Jamie Main and she opened the lodge for visitors in 2004 where we have been welcoming guests ever since. Good to read your enjoyed the property and have noted the spa could have been hotter, we could have rectified this with a call to reception, the spas have a control to easily increase the heat. We are always making improvements to the property with soft refurbishments but we are not looking at this stage for any major remodeling. I hope we can welcome you back. Kind regards Ann

I stayed 2 nights at Peppers for two nights to celebrate my 60th birthday, along with my sister and 4 very close friends. We had purchased a luxury escape and it certainly lived up to every minute. We were welcomed very warmly by Anne, starting our visit with a tour of the hotel before heading to our suites for the weekend. Teresa and me had the main suite, which didn't disappoint! The welcome gift of chocolates, as well as a birthday gift of hand cream, was really appreciated. The views were amazing and we were blessed with clear blue skies for our visit. The hotel had split the super king into two king singles which were extremely comfortable. The chandelier over the beds was spectacular. The main suite is very large and elegantly furnished, with a separate lounge and dining area, as was the large outdoor terrace off the room. The double spa bath and spa shower in the spacious bathroom were also put to use over the weekend. The suites that our friends were in were also large and very well appointed. One couple had Room 3, the garden suite, while the other was next door in Room 2, which had a great lake view as well. Our luxury escape came with a three course meal, which we had in a private dining room off the entrance. It was superb. We chose to have this on our first night, and then made good use of the Main Suite on our second night, and dined in with platters. Breakfast didn't disappoint either. I felt very spoilt throughout the weekend and intend returning!

What a beautiful review and thank you so much for taking time to write. I am so pleased to read that you had a wonderful 60th birthday along with your sister and 4 of your close friends. Great that you have made such lovely memories. I will be sure to pass on to the team your comments, especially the kitchen team. I am glad you felt spoilt and look forward to your return one day. Kind regards Ann Gregor.

Very causy, good view and bouge food

This was my second time here both with my family. This place is always great and never disappoints. The rooms there are very nice and spacious with very few tables per room. Very good ambiance with jazz music in the background. Ian our server was very nice and welcoming. The plates were presented well and the food was tasty. The carte was very complete with various choice and many drinks were available. Overall would definetly recommend peppers on point as a venue for big occasions as it is quite pricey.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about our service and thank you for your continued support. I will be sure to pass on your comments to Ian and to our kitchen team. Many thanks Ann
