Good day Please ensure that the keys to the rooms works and one of the room does not have hot water The rooms are too hot makes it difficult for one to sleep, the reception we received was the best if you can work on the above mentioned we will surely come back

My Technician raised the concern that there was no security as our Bakkie had a lot of tools in, they also did not know about the dinner and Breakfast that was booked with them. The person at the counter did not know what... More

The place is cool and very quite and is ideal for somone wanting to get away for a while from the busy hectic urban life. I thoroughly enjoyed my three nights there the staff was very friendly and helpful and the room very clean, thoroughly impressed. One suggestion I have is the inclusion of a swimming pool on site.

The location,service and the rooms of the lodge was excellent. The only problem was that at times there was either no water or at some times there was only hot water. The staff was very friendly and helpful - especialy when confronted with the water problem. I will definitely stay at Machate in future and will recommend anybody to stay... More

i say it was average because the room did not have a door to divide the bathroom and the bedroom. the water was cold 90 percent of the time but i think things will improve as time goes on so we'll see
