We stayed here before and after our G-adventures trek and despite the bad reviews we found it a sweet quaint place. The animals are sweet, the crazy sheepdog is funny and the facilities are really good and the staff nice. There are a few downsides but if you follow the tips given by reviewers you'll avoid disappointment. Showers... take a shower at a time when you know others probably won't, such as very very early morning, afternoon, or evening. Just before breakfast everyone takes a shower and the water pressure and hot water isn't enough to accommodate every room. A bit annoying but if you take my tips into consideration you won't be disappointed or you'll be the lucky one at breakfast who had a great shower! Second tip is ordering food. The lodge doesn't have a restaurant, and only dinner options is taxi to a restaurant, the lodge's vending machine full of crisps chocolate and beer, or takeaways. So the tip is decide what you want for dinner at lunchtime and order it in the afternoon at least 2/3hrs before you want it because we waited a shocking 3 hours after ordering pizza at 5pm. We had read reviewers to order early as the wait was at least an hour so we thought 4.45-5pm was early, but a 3hour wait! We were starving! We also ordered two nights worth of pizza and the next night used the lodges common room microwave to heat it up. Thankfully we thought ahead and didn't go hungry our second night. Lodge was nice and we also booked a tour through the lodge of j-berg city and apartheid museum and enjoyed it very much.
