The vision for Chappys Cushion is to give everyone the opportunity to experience the outdoors, relax, refresh and enjoy the beautiful Savannah bushveld surroundings. With the lodge situated about 28Km from Grahamstown and Port Alfred, we offer 3-star en-suite accommodation in our main-lodge and 4 star backpacker accommodation in the bunk-house.
We cater for team-building, accommodation for the Grahamstown National Arts & Jazz Festival, Science Festival accommodation, Eco-educational hikes, conferencing, Grahamstown's Rhodes University orientation, Rhodes graduation or any of our on-site activities (wellness spa, quad biking, fishing, weddings and fun). With breathtaking views all around for guests to enjoy and experience the tranquillity.
We would also like to attract the business traveller and families wanting a getaway during holidays or to visit the nearby festivals. Our serene surroundings are a guaranteed attraction for the busy mind to relax and unwind. You can relax in the bar pool patio area overlooking rolling hills covered in Savannah bushveld as you watch the sun rise or set or enjoy game viewing at the sun downer viewpoint with lots of species of fauna and flora to explore.
Our vision is for every individual to walk away feeling refreshed and energised. For the young and the young at heart to experience tranquillity in its best form or to be hypnotised by our boma fire in the evening where you can relax and discuss the day’s events.
