Perfection, beautiful rooms, wonderful views, especially of sunrise and sunset. Take your binoculars, lake, bird life ... away from everything. Wellness spa if you are so inclined, close to the Wilderness, the beach, holiday magic ... beautiful breakfast with a view. Entrance hall takes your breath away - pool that seems to end in the lake. Highly recommended.

The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful with a special mention of the manager ,Marilise ,who organised our taxi into town, spa treatments and even called our room... More

Our stay at Lodge on the Lake was a birthday getaway for my girlfriend. We were blown away by the room (honeymoon suite) and even more so by the views from the patio. The spa treatments were relaxing and revitalised us for the weekend ahead. Breakfasts were simple yet tasty and well prepared. Overall, Marilise and the rest of the... More

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at the Lodge on the Lake. It was the most romantic and peaceful accommodation we have ever stayed at. The room was stunning! The couples retreat spa treatment was 2 hours of absolute bliss and relaxation! We will go back there any day! It is the perfect place to rekindle the romance of... More

My new husband and I booked 4 nights for our honeymoon. At first we were booked in room number 1. The room is lovely with a stunning view over the lake, but this room will be perfect for business travellers (I just think the tv needs an upgrade). After two nights we upgraded to the honeymoon suite, wow, this room... More

I was a little apprehensive booking here after reading the reviews, but they were offering a good deal, so we snapped it up. My husband and I were on honeymoon and this was a lovely place to be booked in. Our room had an awesome view, the breakfast was good, room was cleaned daily during our stay and the staff... More

Had a great stay, Marilise could not have been more helpful and view is superb. Very convenient for Wilderness, thoroughly recommended. Stayed in the honeymoon suit which was lovely big room; believe all rooms had the same superb view of the lake

Booked into the honeymoon suite over 3 months before we went, our room was subsequently given to another couple and we were given the difference saying they double booked (even though we booked first). We were put into a room that was dirty, dusty, and had a broken toilet seat - even though they were expecting us they did not... More
