Reviews for Namakwari Lodge
My only advice don't live here longer than a week cuz you'll get tired of the place
A really good guest lodge in Kathu, huge rooms, good restaurant and well priced.
We ordered a pizza for takeaway and were so impressed with its taste and quality - toppings were not at all neglected; it was stacked and worth the price.
Not much one can find wrong at Namakwari, good food, lovely rooms and friendly service
Although the food is usually very good, service is unfortunately not. Steak nor prepared as requested and took really long.Acommodation, although comfortable, is very noisy due to music played at the restaurant and big road next to the lodge.
Liked the food. Good service. Lovely atmosphere.
Noizy. ... always a mix up with food and terrible service. Other items are added to bill which constitutes dishonesty
Excellent food. Had steak two days in a row. Friendly service. Will definitely visit again when in Kathu
The people who call this place heavenly surely do so for one reason, it feels like you spend an eternity... waiting for your food. Never in my life have I endured worse service or longer waiting times for less than average food at higher than average prices.
Different seating areas cater for smokers, families and singles. Awesome food and very friendly staff. The room are luxurious.
Love the food at Katexas steakhouse. They have a very welcoming lunch special for R60 270g steak and chips or Mondays 500g T-bone and chips for R75
Beautiful lodge. Food is fantastic. Staff is friendly and willing to help.
It was a great weekend I had in namakwari Lodge kathu.... The food Was delicious
Really a great place to stay. Perfect thatch cottages in a lovely garden. Nice restaurant
Enjoyed the warm bath and air conditioning in the room. Rooms are neat and nice. The food was not that great. Excellent play area for the kids. No swimming pool.
The outward appearance of the lodge is very "pleasing to the eye" but as the well coined-phrase suggests "the Devil Rests in the Detail". Upon arrival we were assigned to the "larger family room that has a bath & a shower" that being "Fam1". Well, after an exhausting journey "shock & horror" was to be confronted for immediately outside the bedroom door is a "Jumping Inflatable Castle" with a large & noisy inflation pump thumping away! Upon inquiry, only to be told "well it is turned off at 21:00hrs"!!! Apparantly parents with young children love the noise? Anyway, we were reassigned to Room 21, pleasant & clean on the inside but with the wood-laminate floors lifting on the corners on about 25% of the floor, just "inviting a large toe to impale itself".!! Safety hazard.....ummm, I think so! And for R1900 for the two of us, no shampoo just liquid soap that dehydrates ones hair.
Given we were in beef country, the two Rump steaks were near impossible to cut. Breakfast .....arrival at 07:30, suggested it was well "time-expired" in the steamers. Value for money, very poor!
Very vriendly and professional.
Buildings and premises beautiful.
Easy to find.
