The rooms are in desperate need of a major overhaul. We have stayed in a variety of accomodation and are prepared for rough standards but this place tested our endurance!! The rooms are very very average. Linen had lint balls on it, towels were threadbare and there was no fridge. The lights were almost non existent and we were lucky... More

This place blew us away. The setting is remarkable, particularly the main communal areas which are built into the red cliffs. The food was excellent, especially considering it is in the middle of nowhere. The room was quite basic but clean. There is a refurbishment programme under way. Both the bar and the dining room were spectacular because of the... More

This is a fantastically looking lodge clinging to the desert mountains. The main building is large with comfortable lounges, bars and dining rooms. However, the management does not seem to be up to the standard expected, and the rooms are very basic. Staff are very nice, but inadequately trained. Food is average.

As many mention the location and the surroundings are exceptional, the main building blends in well. However the rooms are dreadful, small and very basic. Bathroom was not clean and the shower curtain full of stains. I don't mind something to be simple but it has to be clean. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good and offering substantial....

We stayed overnight and were very impressed with the natural surroundings and the architectural design of the building that suited the location. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. It is quite a busy lodge so the meals are buffet style with lots of variety available and all delicious. The rooms were clean and comfortable... More

We decided to stay overnight only because of the beautiful surroundings. The lodge forms part of all the natural rocks and is awesome. I was however not at all impress with the rooms, definitely not value for money, quite expensive and only equipped with a rattling fan, there was not even coffee/tea facilities in the room. It was not what... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group of 16 from UK. Our room facing the mountain was quite dark and most of the rooms are a long walk from the main building i.e. bar and restaurant. There is a problem with the hot water as it is not always available even though we were told that the... More

The lodge is beautifully situated in front of a mountain but still pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The highlight is the bar and restaurant area. We had amazing buffet dinner which also included delicious meat such as crocodile. Some of the rooms are a bit of a walk from the main building but we did not find this... More

Okay be warned its a fair drive from anywhere, so make sure you have planned your snacks and lunch and drinks. The drive is spectacular and you can stop at several land marks along the way. The lodge is tucked up into the rocky outcrop and it is a very welcome sight to see as you approach it. The main... More
