Tropicana River Lodge
Reviewed November 22, 2012

I share Herna's comments.We spent the previous weekend there.The room was tacky.The curtains were dirty, as well as the table cloth.There was no kettle , but cups and coffee.There was only a light above the bed and one in the shower , the rest of the light fittings were hanging from the ceiling.No light at the mirror if you wanted to put on make-up.There was no tv or radio in the room.

Nothing positive about our weekend there. Rooms dirty, bedcovers dirty and smelly. Lights not working, lampshades torn and tacky. Cushions on bed, postal stamps are better to sleep on. Every complaint is answered by manager that he has just taken over, only to discover he has been there for 7 months, enough time to fix any problems.
