French Lodge International

It was very uncomfortable as there was insufficient hot water to run a bath and the airconditioner did not work properly so the room which consisted mostly of bathroom was freezing cold. We were placed in a room contrary to the one we booked, The "honeymoon Suite". There was a vase of dead flowers on the side of the bath and the candle holders had been used as ashtrays and were not cleaned out. The floor dips in two places and feels unsafe.

Should you consider staying over in George, it can only be at the French Lodge. Well furnished, guest friendly rooms.The electric blanket was more than welcome, and added to the comfort, together with a well stocked fridge.

1. The front entrance to the lodge leaves much to be desired. First impressions is important. Putting the reception in the back was bad planning.
2. I specifically asked for a upstairs room in the lodge, but was allocated a chalet. The chalet was freezing. And the wind was VERY noisy in the chalet.
3. The bed was great, but even with the aircon on all night at 30 degrees and the electric blanket, i was still cold.
4. Maintenance seemed behind, and the gardens could be neater. Again, first impressions.
5. The floors in the chalet was very dirty, especially in the bathroom.
6. Wanted to have breakfast at the lodge but was told that the R69 was a rip-off for what you got. That was sad to hear.

I love the comfort and the beauty of the rooms. Every room has its own awesomeness.
The Jacuzzi is a winner after a long and exhausting trip.
The reception at the French Lodge is always so warm and friendly.
PS....and the wine in the fridge....thumbs up

we were there for 1 night (March 16/2014) and very much enjoyed the atmosphere, the room, & the food (breakfast). Thank you so much to the staff for your assistance in also helping us figure out our little itinerary thru the southern part of south Africa! This is a great location and we felt safe, thank you!

The staff were fantastic in terms of friendliness and making us feel at home. We felt safe and secure. All you could want in terms of being situated centrally in George and also along the Garden Route.

We had a wonderful stay at the French Lodge. The setting is beautiful and romantic. Rooms are very nice and to have your own whirlpool is special. The service was excellent and friendly. Breakfast was delicious.
Thank you! Hope to come back soon.
