About Us…


Monkey Thorn Guest Lodge is a privately owned 5 star lodge run and managed by Cathy & George.

Being in the hospitality industry for many years we bring our wealth of experience to make your stay unforgettable.

The lodge was built new in 2018 and finished ready for opening in 2019. A space of complete tranquility was achieved yet close enough to the town, so locals would be able to enjoy the restaurant, which is rustic and traditional and perfect for a romantic night out.

Achieving a five star grading was always the aim and by aiming for this it enabled the suites and the lodge to meet five star international standards which we were delighted to be awarded in March 2020.

We look forward to welcoming you to the lodge.
