Noizy. ... always a mix up with food and terrible service. Other items are added to bill which constitutes dishonesty

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.

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!
