What an amazing time we are having! The staff are incredible: friendly, helpful and genuine. We had to change our booking a number of times, owing to unforseen circumstances. There was not a problem at any stage, and plans were always made to accommodate us. The setting is tranquil and romantic, heightened by the fact that we have the entire... More

Cleanliness of the rooms are good. Rooms are comfortable, but can be updated (Aircon will be a welcome addition). Facilities may need some updating & staff knowledge regarding out of order facilities needs to be heightened. But if you are looking to relax around the pool, catch a tan & enjoy sun-downers, Hulala Lakeside Lodge is definitely the place for... More

We were booked at Hazyriver Country Estate Unit 1 (Starling) from 3-8 January. We arrived at the Hulala Lakeside Lodge to have lunch at 13:00 as our room was still being cleaned! The lodge has an interesting view but not well maintained. Nobody showed us a table when we arrived for lunch. We had to find a table ourselves on... More

Beautiful establishment but poorly mantained. They advertise a sparkling pool which we found the water was very murky. Worst was the lack of service - some of the staff that was so rude and we had to leave the restaurant and opted to drive and eat out for the rest of the days we were there. It was such a... More

We stayed in one of the self-catering units at the Lodge, a three bedroom, six sleeper. The self-catering units are all well-situated with good views of the dam. Each unit had its own splash pool, which is a carefree way to cool down right on your own patio. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We did wish that the kitchen... More

We stayed in the honeymoon suite with private jacuzzi and large pool This was excellent! Better than the photos. Meals better than normal with some personal touch from the chef! Thanks to all the staff we enjoyed a super stay

Nice hotel but now well maintained. The pool needed a good clean...the water was very cloudy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food wasn't bad however we didn't care much for the preset menus for dinner...coffee was however great.

If you want a few relaxing days, away from home, with excellent food and very friendly staff, then Hulala Lakeside Lodge is your place. From the moment you are greeted by Walter,at the main gate, with his 'stepping march' routine, you know you are in for something special. We have just come back from our fifth visit and have enjoyed... More

We spent a few days here with the groupon deal. The lodge is very well maintained. Food is excellent. Service inconsistent - some staff were fantastic - some shockingly bad! Nice extra touches like your car being washed without asking, a waitress on board to serve drinks at the sunset cruise and the very entertaining gate guard. Easy drive to... More

Our second time around at Hulala, and it was the same good service as the first time around. We could relax and unwind. Includes dinner and breakfast. Food is great! Well prepared and well presented and the restaurant staff is very efficient.. No nasty dirty plates. Old country feeling with character. Can definitely recommend.
