We were really impressed, Gunner & Rosemary were perfect hosts. The room was airy, clean & cool (travelling in December). The bathroom was a treat especially the loo with a view! Although they were closed for dinner the evening we stayed they booked us into a really great restaurant right across the street where we had the best pizza ever!”

We deserved a weekend away? A tranquil, peaceful, fun weekend in a country atmosphere? A weekend where you can relax in a beautiful setting that is comforting and homely? Where the people are friendly and know your name? No question about it . . . . . . . Gunners is the place to go! We have been going there for four years now and have to drag ourselves away each time. We look forward to our next visit there again soon!!”

“Very clean, excellent value for money. We spent 2 nights with our very friendly and helpful hosts in a big, clean room with an en-suite shower, washbasin and toilet. Will return there any time! Super view from stoep on neat plots with horses and sheep.”

“LOCAL MUY ACOGEDOR. Pequeña población situada en Napier, importante zona agrícola y antaño minera. Es un pueblo muy tranquilo para pasear por sus calles y alrededores. El dueño del lodge y restaurante de lo más amable que vimos por la zona.”

“Coffee and rusks generously placed in bedroom was my ideal breakfast, as well as the nearness of many interesting places to visit. I plan to go back in the next 2 months.”

“Gunners Lodge was more than I had anticipated. Our hosts were super friendly and had stories about Napiers history. We were free to come and go, and had a wonderful stay. We will probably book the entire lodge next year for the PATAT FEES. Thanks, it was great.”


“We had an absolute great time. The location was convenient for where we needed to be and the staff was very pleasant.”


“The owners, the gunner himself, really welcome you into their lodge. It is very clean, quiet and good value for money. It is ideally situated with guest parking. Very safe. I really enjoyed my stay and the fact that after you check in you are left alone to relax.Rooms serviced daily. Thanks for the stay.”

“I had a good stay at Gunners Lodge & Mess. It was clean and the people were really friendly. I wasn’t at the lodge often as I was out most of the day.”
