Not the most pleasant stay at all. The wire connections in the rooms were suspect! Turning the kettle on meant the bedside lamp going off! The electricity tripped eventually. Breakfast was terrible. I ordered mince on toast and it was literally boiled mince. When I sent it back the management were clearly unimpressed and disbelieving......Need I say more.

Dear Guest It always amazes me how people leave comments about an establishment and how terrible it was, but sadly they omit to mention the part how badly they treat the staff and how rude they were. I am not even going to waste my breathe on commenting on your interpretation of the rooms, as you were dissatisfied with the... More

No-One to assist with luggage up stairs, showers in baths old fashioned, rooms are noisy (you can hear others in their rooms) - rooms downstairs have no blockout on curtains so the light from outside shines in all the time. Breakfast was disgusting.

Friendly staff. Room smelled of urine. TV remote was nowhere to be found & eventually discovered on the floor behind the curtain. Obviously, the cleaners had not done a thorough job! I needed to attend a course at 8am, but was late as the chef had not yet arrived to cook my breakfast.

Dear Guest I am sorry to see that you had a disappointing experience at our Lodge, unfortunately nothing was mentioned by you on departure, so that i can investigate the smell that you refer to.

Dear Guest Thank you for your positive feedback, unfortunately I think there was a bit of miscommunication about the breakfast, maybe the lady who took the order should have explained it to you.

1. We had no reservation, however when I called the receptionist(Shani) was excellent in explaining to us the rate, the type of room available and she even assisted us with directions as we are not familiar with the area. 2.
