We really liked this lodge. We stayed there 3 nights.it was clean and everything was functioning. We stayed in the floor heated ger with toilet and shower. I tottally recommend this resort. One of the best lodges in terelj. The breakfast was very well and they have their freshly backed bread and cookies

We loved this lodge, situated in a lovely scenic valley in Gorkhi-Terelj National Park. Even though there were things that could be improved, overall we loved our stay.

We were met by a driver at the airport. The transfer to the lodge seemed overpriced, but we were too lazy to seek out an independent driver, and it got the job done. We arrived close to 9pm and were whisked off to our ger; then we returned to the main restaurant building for a hot meal. The food was all-around tasty, and the meals were surprisingly varied; all our lunches and dinners were different. We were served mostly western food (generally very well executed). If you are foreign and want to try Mongolian food, let them know--we had that on our last night and it was a nice change of pace. Also try the tasty Mongolian beer.

Our ger was pretty much what we expected. Since ours was a deluxe ger, it had a queen-sized bed and an attached western-style bathroom (since by early September it was already quite cold, this was key in the middle of the night). Overall, few frills, but we enjoyed the lack of wifi and the cozy fireplace--it really felt like a break. If you don't want to spring for the deluxe, the main shared bathroom was actually very, very nice and generally better maintained than the bathrooms attached to the deluxe gers (our shower drain was a bit clogged, and little bugs kept getting into our private bathroom).

Service was perhaps the weak point; staff members are not really friendly and speak little English. It was difficult to get anyone to do any basic cleaning in our ger over our three-day stay (mostly we just wanted trash taken out), and the person who was supposed to come start up our fireplace in the (cold) early morning only turned up on time one of the three days. On the plus side, they gave us directions to hike to Turtle Rock and set up horseback riding for us, which was nice.

International credit cards are not accepted; we paid for the stay by bank transfer, and paid for incidentals in US dollars (you can also use Mongolian currency).

Don't come here expecting four-star amenities, but it is a beautiful place to escape from everyday life, breathe fresh air, and unwind. We really loved it.

We stayed in Terelj Lodge for 2 nights in a traditional ger after doing the trans Siberian from Russia. It was definitely worth it. I felt so relaxed and happy, I'd like to have spent more time there. The staff are lovely and very accommodating, especially with starting the fires in the gers which made it really cosy in the evenings.

We loved our taste of Mongolia, and would definitely come back based on this visit. Our tour guide, Bat-Orgil, was brilliant too; very good local knowledge and also keen to make sure we had a nice time.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather as it rained heavily on our 2nd day so we couldn't do a few things on our itinerary, but this was unforeseeable so no-ones fault. Perhaps some indoor activities would be good, like local crafts or something.

Definitely recommend!!

This campo is very noisy at night, many of the visitors like to spend the night drinking and partying through the night with no respect for others who may prefer a good night sleep in the nature. If you are not the 'party' type, this camp should be avoided as staff does not enforce silence after 10 pm as in many other camps.

About 60 km from Ulaanbaatar. Nice view and professional team waiting you. I liked their food. Breakfast, lunch were great. Shower, toilets are nice and new. Little bit expensive for average people. You can ride a horse, visit nomad family.

You can stay in either an 100% authentic ger, an updated ger with a bathroom attached, or a cabin. The food is spectacular. The bathrooms are clean and easily accessible. Email them and they'll connect you with a great English speaking tour guide

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.

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.

"Ask for a ger to the right rear of the camp. This will be as far from the restaurant and bar as you can get, and it should be quieter."
