Is there free WiFi in By Bush Telegraph Lodge?
As part of our complimentary guest services, we offer a free, 10 MB/s optical fibre wireless internet connection throughout our guest house. We found that the service is quite reliable with minor downtime.

Is there a swimming pool at your guest house?
We have got a rather large swimming pool at our guest house, which is available 24/7. It is not a heated pool and therefore, it is the most ideal to use during summer.
