Outeniqua Travel Lodge is well-loved for it's affordable (never cheap!) accommodation. Clean, cosy and convivial it has become a well known meeting place for independent travellers from all over the world. 

The style is like spotting your professor in his t-shirt. You will encounter professionalism and taste where it matters, but in a very gentle and laid-back atmosphere.

Be warned, they are unashamedly snobbish. They won't ask you for a lot of money but will require a lot of attitude, values and intellect! Ignore the grumpy owner (who is capable of faking a friendly smile now and again) and rather mix with the adventurous young guests.

Of course it is a huge risk to be the most affordable accommodation in George. Instead of interesting (No! They do not find weed smoking drunks interesting), adventurous, articulate, intelligent, civilized, well educated, responsible, well read, eccentric, soft spoken, budget travellers that they try to attract they might end up with the 'cheap-accommodation-seekers-squad' (people throwing empty coke tins from their car windows).

Since the focus in a travel lodge is on the communal areas (TV room, kitchen and braai) where all the guests can meet, socialise and philosophise about sophisticated topics the 'cheap-squad' will hopefully soon feel out of touch. Outeniqua Travel Lodge is meant for people who are willing to lose the chocolate on the bed and rather spend money on a bottle of quality wine and happy laughter.
