We arrived to check in..were asked to pay the outstanding amount on our credit cards..only to be told the credit card machine did not work..after 10 minutes the receptionist "made a plan".
We asked if there was someone who could help us carry our luggage to the chalet the response was "no". So after 5 trips between the car and the chalet we opened a bottle of wine only to find 2 odd wine glasses in the chalet.
There were many other incidents like a resident rat.
To summarize..I would not book this lodge again the "gym" is filthy, the pool table is locked away and we were told we need R250 cash to unlock the room...there was no fire in the eating area..the couches were dirty and the facilities meet the minimum only.
