“Service at Sha-Mani Lodge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights at the lodge end of April 2014. The room was large, bedding and towels clean and enough blankets. Unfortunately the cupboard is in the bathroom. No hooks to hang gown or clothes in bathroom. Only one small rail. The other one was broken and not replaced. Door to bathroom door couldn't open all the way-basin in the way. No coffee, tea, milk on arrival. Had buffet lunch for family birthday and the food and service was good. On last morning the breakfast buffet was taken away before we had breakfast although we were not late for breakfast. They did service us breakfast though. Hardly any hot water! No tissues in tissue box for duration of stay, although we complained. Room has fridge, microwave and kettle but no utensils to eat with - only mugs, 2 glasses and 3 teaspoons. Forces one to eat out. Although a bar is available on the premises the person manning the bar was absent when we wanted a drink before lunch. We had to go to Dros which is, fortunately, just about 2 blocks away. The reception was closed, and we had to phone a cell phone number every time we needed the Manager. Location is great - quite near a shopping centre with restaurants. Owner didn't reply to my e-mail when I complained.
