“Excellent service and stunning view”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We stayed for one night. The room was large and nice. Great view from the balcony. And lovely pool and breakfast spot. Breakfast was exactly what we where looking for; healthy and fresh. Charming and professional staff. Good value for money.

We had an absolutely amazing three night stay at Lodge on the Lake. We had a gorgeous room (Room 3 - Honeymoon suite) and the views are breathtaking. The price is absolutely affordable. The laundry service they offer is good, and the breakfasts they served were delicious. The infinity swimming pool was refreshing and clean, and sipping a cider in the pool while looking out onto the lake below made us feel as though we were at an expensive resort.The package we got included a full body scrub and massage at their Wellness Centre and it was out of this world! The mini-bar is not expensive!
The only draw back is that the restaurant only serves breakfast BUT another couple brought food to eat on the balcony for supper and Patrick was serving them, so I assume this is something which guests can do. We were quite happy to eat out in the evenings because the restaurants are very close by, and on our last night we had a picnic on the bed which was absolutely lovely.
We will definitely be back!

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our road trip along the garden route. Our agent had originally booked us somewhere else but they wanted us to change rooms mid stay so we booked here instead, what a good move. It is a very stylish and spacious villa with just five rooms all with balconys and views over the lake. One night it was just us staying and we felt like we were in our own luxury villa. Breakfast on the terrace, sun loungers by the small infinity pool, huge rooms and friendly staff all made for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. if you feel like splashing out book the honeymoon room (3).

We stayed at the Lodge on the Lake en route from Cape Town. Pleasantly surprised at the View and the Size of the room and how the shower was laid out. Arrived in the dark, went for breakfast the next morning, greeted by a healthy buffet sitting overlooking the Lake and at the edge of the pool at the lodge, glorious setting. Big let down was the lack of a flat tv screen in the bedroom, the building and interior is of good quality and the room has an old fashioned thick TV which was difficult to watch programs on being so far away from the bed and couch, it certainly was a disappointment. Went for a spa treatment and they were utterly professional. Met Vicky the Manager and Patrick who helped with our luggage, very friendly and open and attentative. Its a good view, a good venue, relaxing retreat and Spa and the pool looks heavenly (it was in winter so we could not try it out). We had 1 lunch with them of salad and lasagne and was very suprised at how tasty it was and presented so lovely on the plate, cant complain about the food. The entire building is in marble, I felt it was a bit cold, but it looks astonishing, and the furniture is in good taste. Overall a good place for my Daughter and I to stop over en route to visit family, and have a relaxing spa and a good breakfast.

Room Tip: Only has 5 rooms I think, they all face they lake, and are all upstairs, so great views of the lake.

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.
