My Husband and I stopped over at White River Lodge Hotel on our way to stay in the Kruger. Not cheap to book at. What an awful experience 1. The room is small and smells of smoke (for non smokers, the smell is really bad) 2. One bed in the room, and it was not a double? Sleeping in two... More

this is one of those awful little hotels with the grandiose names. It might have been OK if there was not this pervasive smell of air freshener, likely labelled as 'pimp oil' or possibly 'eau de phew' it's only redeeming quality is it is near Kruger
