Restaurant and food very good. Service very pleasant. Chalet accommodation very average. The one shower did not work. The bedding and the bed linen could be updated. Coffee and tea etc should be included in the rooms.

The concept of Marloth park itself is great. Having lodges in such location adds value to visitors' money. Phumula is an excellent lodge with relaxing and good facilities. In our case, only one disappointing factor was the fact that there was no shower (only bathtub, with non mixing taps) in the upper level which had the bigger bed. This forced... More

The environment was the perfect bush experience that helps you detach from daily life. All the workers were very accommodating and helpful when we needed items or bookings. The restaurant was a great place to enjoy a social evening! Definitely would come back.

Accommodation is clean and comfortable, dinner options are varied and very good. Maria runs a good establishment and keen to please. Festive pub for sports games, etc. Location a little removed but this is also good sometimes.

I have stayed in a number of lodges in Marloth Park and this is by far the best service and experience I have received up to date. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Really friendly personnel.

From the moment you phone Phumula lodge you experience that the staff are extremely friendly, and that they put in effort in being pleasant and helpful. Marloth park is a very dry place with dead heat, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the aircons in the rooms worked and that they have a bar/pool area. You get to see... More

Don't even know where to start with all the awful things that I have experienced. When I demanded to speak to the owner a young girl came and made it out to be my problem and not hers. I thought for a moment that she was the client and that I was the one that should please her. Their restaurant... More
