“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

We had our wedding anniversary at the lodge. The setting is nice as you think you are far away from the city and actually you are only 20minutes from Randburg. It is a 3star which is correct. The Hotel is old but has recently refurbished the rooms. There is no mini bar and I found the price high for the space you received. I can get an excellent deal in europe in a hotel with much more.
The hotel has also got conference facilities and many other activities can be planed such as trout fishing, balloning hking horse riding and experiencing the cradle of human kind.
It is also has a new Spa which is well equipped to cater for all needs.
The service was the best about the hotel. We got spoilt and pampered by the well trained staff.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2009

My wife and I stayed 3 nights (long weekend) having been here some 10 yrs previously. It's location in the bush just beyond the suburbia of northern Johannesburg is fantastic - you feel you are right away from everything and to get to N.suburbs of Jhb is about 10-20 mins.
Generally, the place is looking tatty - it is positioned now as a conference centre, so most guests are corporate visitors, in for a night or two. We stayed in chalet #9 which whilst adequate was dark and basic. The TV didn't work. I personally reported it to the front desk 3 times. No action...I ended up swopping it myself with the chalet next door. Despite "no smoking" signs, the pub was a haze of blue smoke when a big sports event was shown on the big screen. Furnishings in the dining room are from the 70's.
We paid approx R560 per person incl breakfast - not great as there are better internet prices available at other similar hotels.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2009

We had a great and relaxing experience. Lots of other young families also guests during the time. Family rooms are spacious and clean. Great rock pool with beautiful green gardens and play areas. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Can improve: signage from family rooms to restaurants, more garden furniture around the pool and dinner menu need more variety.
