Stayed at Jozini Tiger Lodge for 2 nights at the end of September. The hotel and guest rooms are absolutely gorgeous and very modern, clean and spacious. However if you struggle with stairs etc it may be a bit of a problem as lots of stairs to get to the rooms etc. Amazing view of the dam from the hotel room balcony. Also loved the shutters from the bathroom so you could sit and admire the view from the bath if you wanted to!
Staff were very helpful. However the food quality I thought varied drastically. On the first day we were there our group ordered a simple lunch of sandwiches, wraps, burgers etc all of which were very nice. However the food that was on the buffet on the evening, if you did not eat red meat there wasn't much of a selection! My friend that does eat red meat said that it was ok but she wouldn't have it again and I ended up eating bread rolls and cheese for my evening meal. The desserts were also not great.
Breakfast had the usual offerings but again if you weren't the first to breakfast a lot of things were not there (however when the head chef saw one morning that something I wanted was missing he went into the kitchen and replenished straight away).
The hotel is at the bottom of a dusty hill and apart from organised trips etc you cannot just get out of the hotel complex and walk around.
Whilst we were there the pool was also under renovation work so could not use this and there were several parties using the hotel who liked to shout loudly outside our room in the corridor amongst themselves in the early hours of the morning!
Even though the food was hit and miss I would stay here again because of the hotel generally and the hotel rooms.
