Ger and restaurant were very good. We visited there in September and ger was so warm because using a floor heater. It was comfortable to stay and the door was nice. You could see through outside view and also enjoying sit outside the door because it has something like a balcony. The breakfast and lunch literally food was delicious. Breakfast has so many choices that I like.
The location and scenery was beautiful, food was ok, horse riding was fun but ... we paid our tour company for deluxe accommodations and this was not deluxe. Heat from a stove with firewood service that ends at 11pm is NOT what I expected for deluxe. It was June and the weather was cold, so accommodations with a decent heater was a must--esp. since I caught a cold from the tour guide. Not fun at all. If you need heat, look elsewhere.
Terelj Lodge is the most beautiful and comfortable accommodation during our entire tour of Mongolia. Meals are appetising and widespread. It is surrounded by absolute beauty that displays the glory of our Creator.
Good concierge services upon arrival and staff assisted to get my luggage to my Ger. Restaurants available on site. Breakfast was buffet to fill stomach. Floor heating is available as it was raining during midnight. Have basketball. Volleyball Court on site. Toilet and shower was shared and located in the middle of the campsite with male and female separated. Good view of horses cows and sheep's roaming outside the camp as the security will chase them out.
It would be inappropriate to compare ger camps in Mongolia to hotels or motels elsewhere. We stayed in a total of 10 on a tour of the country and have rated them against each other. As a point of reference ger camps are somewhere between camping and ‘glamping’, far more comfortable than just groundsheet and canvas but also far from the luxury of the ‘camps’ in Botswana or South Africa. What the ger (never call them yurts!) camps had in common was safety, spotless cleanliness (truly amazing given their remote locations), spacious gers and comfortable beds. Food was usually plentiful, edible but bland. Most breakfasts were buffet style and both lunch and dinner were three or four courses - typically salad, a meat course with a vegetarian option and canned fruit or cake for dessert. Terelj Lodge is near the capital UB and is therefore inevitably larger and busier than more remote camps. It attracts many tour groups and is consequently more crowded, nosier and less than an authentic ger experience. That said, the gers themselves are comfortable and have the bonus of a balcony. The camp has electricity and sometimes hot showers. The restaurant service is breakneck speed - 4 courses in 20 minutes - in a dining room that feels like a hotel. There is no wiFi.…
