Lala Dene Lodge
Ranked #99 of 163 Bloemfontein B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Booked for 2 nights during Feb and, according to my judgement and experience, this is not a 4 star place (having stayed in a numer of gusthouses/lodges). My room was neat and clean, the shower a decent size, the aircon was working well, quiet area and the the tv was a decent size flatscreen. However, my room's floor was sloping to one side, there was only one channel of M-Net, NO BAR FRIDGE?? (a standard item I have found in most 3 star lodges), no toilet odour spray and single ply toilet paper.

We stayed at Lala Dene Lodge during June and had a good stay. The curtains in the room are of very high quality and allowed us to sleep in the next morning without realising the new day has begun.

One thing we found lacking was the bathrooms. Lala Dene Lodge is marketed as a 4 star establishment, but there was no sign of that when looking at the bathrooms. There was only one towel per person, no bath sheets or face cloths. We also didn't receive any personal amenities except for a wrapped soap.

The lodge is ideally located for access to the waterfront mall as well as the Freestate stadium.

Spend three nights at Lala Dene at the beginning of May and find it difficult to believe that this lodge is really 4 star rated. I would have expected more of a 4 star rated lodge. Our bathroom had mildew on the ceiling, the floor was sloping to the one side and there was no waste bin or bar fridge. Although you have DSTV the TV unit is old and there is maybe 4 channels. Not the best place where I have been.
