Well, I wish I could tell people not to stay here so I would be able to easily make a booking for my next trip. I made a last minute booking and was fortunate to get a room. This hotel is popular with good reason. There is nothing I could see that is negative about the Country Lodge. I was able to get an economy room, and that is all I needed.
Internet wi-fi was good, room was clean and cheerful. Bed was large enough. The shower was nice and big. The hotel staff were all very friendly and accomodating.
The good thing is that the owners of the Country Lodge, who also own Fairview Lodge next to Country Lodge, are building a large extention to Country Lodge. Although short-notice bookings have been difficult, perhaps after August when the extention is complete, more people can stay here, and last-minute bookings may not be a problem.
The hotel uses the Fairview Lodge restaurants. I tried the padio restaurant and Atrium. Both were very good and at very reasonable prices. Great food at a great price, a winning combination.
The Country Lodge has taxi drivers on standby. These guys are really friendly. I had kept my original driver (Karoki) throughout my stay. A very wonderful person.
My trip was made much nicer thanks to Country Lodge!
