Private and very quiet place. Could serve as a good hide out. Enthusiastic kitchen staff
Always a pleasure coming to stay at the lodge - have been for years and will continue to enjoy every trip and stay. Thanks for the friendliest staff that always greet us with a smile and put in that extra effort to ensure our stay is always homely. Look forward to seeing you all again soon! Pete, Management & All staff! :) All the way from Cape Town!
Arrived at airport to be met on time & taken to the lodge ... The welcome & baggage assistance was instantaneous. The room was spotless! My stay was incredible ! Service - top class, nothing was ever an effort ... Owner was hands on & would recommend it to anyone wanting to be spoilt during their stay. Thank you Peter & all staff for making our holiday that much more enjoyable !!
Staff are inconsistent and dishonest. Rooms are stinky and management prefer to defend and listen to the pathetic staff instead of sorting out the issues.
Rooms are great spaces and clean, pool woderfull, that much sead. Untill you get to dinner and breakfast, dining area smell's like mold stickie tabls and dirty serving area. dinner was dry pap like it was made early afternoon, dry chicken that smelled off some sort off bean/chakalaca sauce and salled with not even one survette, breakfast was fine
"Warn welcoming receptionist"
The room was nice and spacious, but please the rooms need more air circulation, they have a very stuffy smell or damp smell.
The place is nice and enjoyable,our room had a lil bit of dust if they can work on that everything will be 100 ...will definitely visit again
We stayed for 6 days & excellent place for relaxing. Service is great will definitely visit again
The rooms are clean staff very friendly the area quite and nice i will visit again
Beautiful manicured gardens, relaxing pool area, beautician on site, friendly staff. Great stay. An escape from the everyday hustle and bustle, a real local hidden gem. Looking forward to going back
We arrived well after check in and upon opening our room, everything was a mess. The bed wasn't made up, used towels on the floor and empty food packets- this was we were welcomed to after confirmation that our room was 'ready'. First impressions count, worse when allocating rooms to people who arrived 2 hours after check-in. This needs to be attended to. The pool was dirty and there was absolutely no network reception in our room unless you stepped outside. I'm not even talking about the wifi limited only to the dining area. Other guests on motorbikes could have been more considerate and accomodating to the fact that there were other people using the same place of leisure regarding the noise levels they made with their motor vehicles, yet management didn't intervene.
