I've never had such fantastic time before in my life. Hulala is the best place to be. The place is awesome. We were so intrigued by it. Its a perfect place if you want to escape everything. We are planning our second visit already, for a longer period this time. The service is just as excellent. The people there really... More

I've just returned from a well deserved vacation at Hulala Lakeside Lodge. I must say I really enjoyed my stay in this beautiful lodge. The place is just magnificent and indeed a well deserving 4 star lodge. The staff were very friendly and helpful - the garden staff even offer to wash your car because the road from the main...

We stayed in the self catering unit at the lodge - Hookthorn cottage. We were very impressed with what the unit had to offer for the rates charged. Found the unit to be very clean, spacious, well decorated and we had everything we needed. There were a couple of ceiling lights not working when we arrived, but someone came straight... More

Our rooms were spacoius, beautiful and clean. Issues with globes and warm water were dealt with by the staff as soon as it was reported. The main building has beautiful gardens with a nice pool area and lounges where one can linger whilst enjoying something from the bar. The food was fantastic and the portions very large. Wonderful not to... More

A lovely country setting by a lake. A bit tired looking and the welcome was hardly enthusiastic. Disappointing! We were not told about anything except where to park and no mention of the lake cruise that was supposed to be included in the stay. We found the staff were mostly ignorant of what goes on there and are without basic... More

Visit Hulala's website and under their logo you'll see four stars, VERY misleading as I have stayed in MUCH better three star guesthouses, all around the country. If you want to book using the Groupon special, rather use that money and go to Kruger and do self-catering in the Park's chalets. We booked for three nights and only stayed one.... More

Stayed at this lodge for a weekend with my patner. We arrived on 13 March and were welcomed by friendly staff. we checked into our room which was very dual and had a damp smell to it. The worst thing about the room is the partio which over looks the roof of the dinning hall as well as the reception... More

It is quite a distance off road. Luckily they have placed signs not to give up. Once arrived we found a beautifull chalet near the lake. It was immediately made clear to us that the "cruise" on the lake would not be possible due to a motor problem (but who cares). Dinner was excellent and we choose not to take... More

We booked for 1 night & arrived early on the Saturday morning. Thankfully our room was ready but we were dissappointed. We were charged full rate which includes breakfast & dinner. The room (unit 7) smelt of damp. The bed was comfortable but overall the room is dated & so is the bathroom. Accordingly to the new law, the use... More
