After reading all the good reviews on tripadvisor, I was looking forward to my stay at Ikhaya Lodge- and I was bitterly disappointed, mainly for two reasons: Firstly, while the rooms are very nicely furnished and decorated, the walls are really thin and you can hear absolutely everything that your next door neighbour is doing. Mine got up at 6.30 a.m. every day and switched on the tv at sufficient volume to wake me up every morning. Not a great start into my holiday in South Africa. Secondly, the service at reception and at the restaurant was extremely slow and not very helpful. The service suddenly reached previously unseen levels on my last day here, when apparently the manager, who was absolutely lovely and full of knowledge about the city and the country, had arrived back at the lodge- but unfortunately, as soon as she had left the building that night, her employees were as inattentive as before.
I am sorry to say this, because the place is beautiful and the location on Dunkley Square is just superb- but I would not recommend this as a holiday location. The best part of my stay here were the dinners in the lovely Greek restaurant, Maria, on the other side of that square!
