First impressions were good and the friendly staff at reception made one feel very welcome. There seem to be rooms of different standards/quality which is hard to accept if they are rated 'four-star' - one reasonably expects all the rooms to be of a high standard. My first room had urine on the toilet seat and on the floor next... More

My third review for the lodge, and this time I am not coming back. Previous time I was very upset, but I had enough. Front desk service was good. She even agreed on late check out, so I cant complain about her. The room was ok. At least clean this time. Breakfast was the disaster this time. I had a... More

Terrible attitude. Substandard Rooms. Irrational no-alcohol policy. Unprofessional staff. Overinflated (tripled) rates. Dirty pool. Unfriendly staff. Difficult booking process. Non-communicated three-night booking policy. d

Must have been in better shape before slip-sliding into grubby and dated. Carpets stained and splotchy. Ceilings, walls and furniture grubby and stained. Courtesy coffee and tea has only two sachets of sugar and no rooibos tea. After a sleepless night went for a walk around the gardens back and front of lodge at 2h00 in the early hours for... More

I stayed here so many times. Never had any problems. Everytime it was clean, good service, decent breakfast. But this time, when I checked in 10.30 pm, I had to move rooms, because the room was not made. It was probably a huge misunderstanding or something from the hotel, but it was not funny. not that time of the vening.... More

Stayed while attending a course. Comfortable bed in spacious room. Bathroom difficult to use. Nowhere to put your clothes? Good breakfast. Friendly service although a bit impersonal. Liked the radio in the room.

I had a lovely room that walked out on the garden. Big bath and confortable shower. Nice bed, and the heating worked well. There were some very noisy guests in the restaurant with breakfast, that spoiled it a little.
