“Absolutely Stunning!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We recently had the privilege of staying at Kloofzicht Lodge in one of their Superior Rooms. What an experience! The staff are very friendly and professional, rooms exquisite and the meals are simply outstanding. Each room has a gas fireplace and a wonderful view of the trout dams and mountain - what a way to wake up!

Thank you to the Management & Staff of Kloofzicht for making our stay a memorable one and we will definitely be returning to experience your pampering sometime soon! Keep up the excellent standards!

Room Tip: We stayed in a Superior Room - absolutely stunning.

Upon arrival, there is something of the 1970s about the small, demi-walled reception and higgledy piggledy rack of leaflets and handouts. First impressions however belie the outstanding comfort and quality of this wonderful retreat. I was welcomed and checked in with friendly efficiency and taken to my room by the gentlemanly Alex who offered to return and accompany me back to the restaurant later (it is a noticeable walk in the dark and would be difficult for someone with mobility problems).

Each lodge is exquisite; an open-look cozy fire, a beautiful bathroom with rainshowers,  a large bath and plenty of space for potions and lotions. The wide, comfortable bed has high quality pillows and bedding, there is a large TV which can be set to the local Classic FM or used to play DVDs if like me you don't  watch a lot of  TV. All tea, coffees, toiletries, water are generously supplied (a welcome relief from the 'rationing' in some establishments) and a chocolate appears each evening.

My lodge was right next to the lake; the tranquility with only the sound of the ducks, birds and other wildlife was soothing and the stresses of the working week lifted quickly. I could have sat on my spacious balcony all day long in the sun (but didn't). There are mapped walks around the park of varying degrees of difficulty and you will see many birds, butterflies and animals. The lady at reception said everything was harmless although one of the large male monkey-like creatures I encountered was a little alarming.

During my first night, I was kept awake for several hours by the most Chaucerian and energetic marital disagreement I have ever heard (I have been married 26 years so have heard one or two). The protagonists had thankfully left by my second night (after a lengthy second round the next morning). The hotel cannot be blamed for the 'anger  issues' suffered by those particular guests  but soundproofing of the lodges may need stepping up in case of noisy neighbours generally.
 
 Food and restaurant service is very good indeed with excellent choice and quality.  There is a nice choice of wines and a friendly 'pub' for a drink after dinner or any other time of day! The spa is outstanding, well appointed, delightful therapists and a very wide range of high quality treatments and products.  You won't be short of things to do to while away your time. 
 
 

Room Tip: Some rooms are a good walk away from the restaurant and bar so take care if you struggle. If you wan...

Kloofzicht Lodge is beautiful, set in a very picturesque location near the Cradle of Humankind.
All staff were warm, friendly and efficient. We had a family room which we shared with our adult daughter. It was very clean, well appointed and beautifully decorated.with more than enough room for the three of us. The only small drawback was the distance from the main lodge to the suites which, for someone with difficulty walking was a chore. A golf cart to transport guests such as myself would definitely be a great asset. Providing room service would also be a welcome addition.

The meals were simply superb, the best we had during our African vacation and the dining service was fantastic.

The front desk staff arranged for a driver for us for a day of sightseeing. . Thanks to Piet, a very knowledgable gentleman for a fabulous day.

Kloofzicht Lodge is a gem.

Kloofzicht is truly AMAZING. We hosted our wedding their last month and it was perfect. Can't fault it. The venue is simply stunning, the setting is so beautiful. The suites are very well appointed, with thatch roofs, balconies, indoor and outdoor showers...everything you could ever need. The service was brilliant, the staff so friendly. As we are living in Ireland we had some overseas guests who stayed here for a few days and all loved it. Special shout out to Ingrid, Lauren and Olice, who all went above and beyond. We will definitely be back. I miss the place already!
Breakfast buffet, lunch buffet and bar menu all EXCELLENT!!

Room Tip: Depending what you like there are rooms overlooking the dams, or rooms looking over the swimming poo...

Kloofzight is set in a very picturesque setting but the service from the waiters are Terrible. After complaining to management, we were assigned a new waiter. His name is Victor. Every one should ask for him, he is excellent. The first waiter should not be working at a 5 star establishment. She should not work at any restaurant.
Kloofzight should better train their waiters or screen them.

The service made it an average experience.

I stayed at Kloofzicht for a weekend getaway, our room was still dirty on arrival, there was broken glass on the carpet, my partner even cut his foot from it. At least management did attend to this once I informed them. Not enough dinning options, and no room service. The room was the main problem for me, 5 star should at least mean clean!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a view of the valley and dam.

Was a very good experience, great rooms with a great view and great food. Dinner was one of the best I've had, and at a very reasonable price (R225 pp for a 3 course meal). Stayed in one of the superior suites, very good view over looking one of the trout dams.
