Beautifully set in the heart of Horseshoe Valley, on the banks of the Nahoon River, and surrounded by lush vegetation, beautiful hills and an abundance of bird and wildlife, the 3-star East London hotel lies only 10 minutes from the center of East London. The Thornycroft Lodge and Spa is located close to the Hemingways Casino, the enormous and brand new Hemingways Shopping Mall, pristine golf courses, East Coast Resorts with beautiful beaches, and the Jikeleza Route.

This is a place where the businessmen can organize conferences and relax in peace after a heavy day in town, for a relaxing weekend getaway, or a perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route, Wild Coast, and the inland jewels of the Eastern Cape.
