This is a lovely property, well looked after, in a wonderful garden next to a lake. The staff and management is very friendly and helpful. It was great, that they had a specific kids menu to choose from, so that the kids do not have to have a 3 course meal. The food was very, very good.

Overal we enjoyed our stay at Hulala. Accommodation was as expected. The following were small issues that we had: 1. As the visit was during winter time, heating provided was not assisting much in heating up the room. 2. Tv was a bit blurry and not easy to watch. 3. We had limited choice with food since it was a set menu. As mentioned, these were small issue which we didnt bother reporting as we had plan B however, we would like to recommend that these be looked at. We would like to come back during summer to enjoy the outdoors more. Security guard for morning shift give us a 20sec entertaining show which we didnt expect to see. We appreciate his efforts.

The Lodge was initially quite difficult to find, but we were relieved to finally get to it by late evening. Had a lovely dinner provided by the hotel and then went to our room at about 9.30PM and despite all our efforts could not get any hot water in the shower and it was a chilly night. We used the kettle to have a bit of hot water to have a basin and face cloth rub down. I could not raise anyone at Reception as it was closed up for the night. The Manager apologised the next morning. but we were not happy customers!!

Last stop of our road trip 28-30 April. It is a beautiful place to relax but also close to bustling towns. Because of the road it almost forces you to stay on the property for dinner which we did. Dinners were okay...set menu. Breakfast was better. Lunch we went to town. The towns offer nice options for lunch or day activities. On the property you can do a boat trip or walk around the garden The rooms are spacious with views of the lake..,some better than others. Maintenance could be better specially toilet plumbing. Decor in public areas is lush like the gardens and the interior has a colonial feel to it. Love the big rocks in dining room and bar. Furniture could use a bit of maintenance as well or a makeover. Old does not need to be broken specially chairs, tables and sun beds. We are happy to hear that there are plans for sprucing up the place. Staff in general are friendly but could be more attentive.
