We arrived at St Lucia Safari Lodge at around 3pm, well after lunch time when rooms are supposed to be ready. Upon check in we were advised that our room key could not be located at that time. We had a boat in tow as upon making the reservation we were advised by their reservations person that we could bring the boat and they had space to park the boat. When they showed us where we should park the boat it was very clear that we would have damaged their driveway and my boat if we ad tried to get the boat into the "open to the street" area that they allocated us for boat parking. I had to pay an additional R 450.00 to park the boat at the KZN parks camp site where items from my boat were eventually stolen while parked at the camp site. We eventually received our key well after 4pm and checked in. The room was small but neat, clean and tidy. Car parking for the rooms was along side the rooms on a narrow drive way and we were often parked in during our 2 night stay. Beds were comfortable, shower pressure was excellent but space was very limited and no areas provided to place toiletry bags etc. No towel rail either. Just 1 2 prong hook near the shower for hanging towels. Pool was nice and large. Breakfasts were good.

Locations very central, could park the car and walk to where we needed to be
All staff very helpful and friendly
Lovely stay
Rooms were very clean, building inside needs a little TLC but nothing that would hinder our stay

Our overall stay was ok. We found the staff very friendly and helpfull. However, on our arrival the geyser was not switched on, the carpets were extreamly dirty and the pattio looked like it had not seen a broom in ages. Also, the lodge was advertised as self-catering yet there was no oven mittens, can opener or sharp knive. Apart from above, we had a very nice holiday, thank you.
