“Superb and Proffesional!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My Husband and I got married on the 1st of September, and not knowing what he was planning for our very special Honeymoon, I was really excited!! After arriving at Lodge on the Lake on Tuesday afternoon, we were welcomed by extremely friendly staff!! We had a three night stay in this breathtaking Lodge, with great service and the most amazing views!! (Vicky, Chantal, Carolise, as well as the rest of the staff - you can tap yourselfs on the shoulder for treating us proffesional and made us feel at home!! ) We had Spa treatments, as included in their spectacular packages .... Girls!! You were SUPERB in the Spa area! I can truly advise you to visit this incredible Lodge in a very beautiful part of our country!! Spoiled with unbelievable breakfasts, champagne and true royalty!!

Room Tip: Middle Suite is nice and big!!

We had a wonderful day of spoiling at the Lodge on the Lake Spa. Chantal and Carolise looked after us like royalty, the treatments were generous and lovely, and the food well presented and tasty. The setting is superb, overlooking the lake and mountains, such tranquillity. Value for money excellent. We missed the slippers, and a hair-drier.

We stayed 2 nights, took a package that includes a massage, dinner and a welcome bottle of "Champagne". The massage was really good, dinner not up to standard, food was made probably earlier the day, the fish tasted like rubber .....I suppose they don't specialize in food and more in accommodation and spa treatments. The accommodation is really good and the views is stunning from you room!! It was an overall great experience, just next time I would eat at the many excellent restaurants nearby. Oh, and the "champagne" could be better than a cheap sparkling, any South African MCC will be sufficient.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Lodge on the Lake near Wilderness in the Western Cape. Arriving at about 4pm we were greeted by Shayne who proved not only to be incredibly friendly but helpful,pleasant and did everything from mixing cocktails, serving supper and setting the table.
We had a fantastic time and the view of the lake is incredible - being able to watch an amazing array of birdlife from the balcony whilst sharing a stunning sun set made my wife and I feel special. This was followed by a romantic supper on the patio - a 3 course meal that was great.
I therefore would have no hesitation in recommending this Lodge - which I also think was value for money. In addition and because we were leaving early, we wern't able to experienece their breakfast however they then went to the extra trouble of making sandwiches in lieu thereof. Clea, good value, beautiful with large, clean rooms and fantastic staff sums it up. We will definitly return.

Room Tip: All rooms are upstairs with a view so anyone will do.

We only stayed 1 night, but what a fantastic stay ! Together with our stay in Oudtshoorn, the best lodges we did stay in during this vacation.
The view was superb ! The nice room and manager on duty did finish everything up nicely.

Hi,

My husband and I had the greatest pleasure in spending our honeymoon at your lodge.

I would just like to say that we have enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
We were assisted without hesitance by Patrick.
I firmly believe that Patrick and Nomsa are a great asset to the Lodge.

We could not have spent our honeymoon at a better place.
The service is of the highest standards and it definitely left an impression.

The rooms are stunning and I would definitely visit you again. I would definately recommend you to anybody looking for a wonderful holiday.

Kindest Regards.

Aneeka Jacobs

Lodge on the lake was a fantastic experience all round. We spent our honeymoon there and the service was excellent. Corne in particular was really helpful and friendly and we got plenty of assistance locating things to do in the area. Wilderness is a beautiful and intimate little town less than 10min drive away from the hotel and has a vibrant night life.

Our room was spacious and well serviced for the two nights we stayed. We initially had a problem with a broken knob on our balcony door but this was fixed within a few hours. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and we would highly recommend a stay there!
