A Boutique Bush Lodge in the City

Congratulations to our ‘2nd Birthday’ Competition Winner

Congratulations to our ‘2nd Birthday’ Competition Winner

Aloe Lane Guest Lodge Giant TortoiseDuring August, we ran a competition to celebrate Aloe Lane’s 2nd birthday – offering a prize of two nights in our Presidential suite for two people, with dinner, bed and breakfast included, plus a one hour treatment each in our Wellness Suite. Entrants had to correctly name the Lodge Mascot, our very own Giant Tortoise – which of course is Napoleon . . .

We had a great response to the competition, with entries from around the world, and we’re delighted to confirm that our lucky winner – whose winning entry was drawn from the sealed box on 1st September – was Mr Neil McDougall from the UK. Mr McDougall originally visited us on business and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back soon with his family. Thank you to everyone who entered, and who has wished us a Happy 2nd Birthday!
