We visited Spelga House and thought the accommodation was fantastic. It was big, clean & very comfortable. The location was really unique and it was great being so close to the Dam. I’d highly recommend staying here with friends or family. We also did the Land Rover Adventure tour up Pigeon Mountain and had a ball. Edward was a great tour guide. You won’t be disappointed. Great fun!
No one wanted to leave! We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend anyone to stay here, it’s perfect! Thanks, Kathryn for having us.
Great for kids, swing set, games room with pool table and large garden. Perfect for a family holiday with stunning views from Spelga Dam.
Kathryn is a fantastic host and we will certainly be back
