The location and surroundings are fabulous. The fact that there were 3 cubs made it awesome. Best afternoon spent. The view of the dam is great.
The staff are poorly trained, hardly able to communicate and not welcoming to guests using the restaurant and bar facilities. The food was not cheap (dinner especially) No menus available, no indication as to what to expect for supper. The food was cold and appeared to be the leftovers from the wedding which was held there the previous day.(Dinner was VERY DISAPPOINTING). Canned fruit cocktail for breakfast is not very nice and fresh fruit would have been much better. The juice is artificial and very sweet. Ricoffee is also not nice. No coffee/tea available in rooms. The facilities seems a bit run down and needs some serious maintenance, including the swimming pool, gutters, painting, etc. The rooms are "dusty" and we all had "hay-fever" by 03h00 in the morning. The showers flood the bathrooms. This is a venue with loads of potential if run to its full potential and staff just needs to be trained.
Watching Game and fishing
Noisy aircon fitted in the room and the bedding was not 100% clean.
The stuff are friendly and its a cool place
Balcon door was not closing and fan we're not working
The environment was perfect and everything about the lodge was fantastic.
The first room that they gave me was stuffy and sting. The bed was not change, you could the smell of the previous tenant. Then I was move to another the room was ok, but the bedding was stinking. I wasn't giving a complain/compliment or evaluation form.
1. There was a whasp nesting on the ceilling ofthe room allocated tome. 2. Remarkable dry foam on the shower wall. 3.Long hairnext to the drain in the shower. No breakfast included on the room. 4. Waited fom mre than a minute at reception before someone could come to assist me. Staff attire and apperarance similarto farm worker and not a lodge / hotel worker.
We liked the gardens and the location.
The rooms were very hot with no ventilation or air conditioning. The place needs a revamp. The menu selection was poor. There was no backup power or lighting. The power failed and all we got was candle.
The Garden and outside surroundings. The animals
No coffee/tea facilities in the room Needs a paint and revamp - neglected.
The location is very good. The garden is nice.
Everything was used and torn in the room. the courtain the towel had big holes. The swimming pool was very very dirty, no possibility to get in there at all. There was litter everywhere in the garden, plastic, packaging material etc...
Great facilities, good location, beautiful natural surroundings
Place not properly maintained, rooms not properly cleaned. Cupboards and furniture dusty, spider webs in rooms, there was a big flying cockroach in our room.Our balcony door couldn't close and it was raining throughout the night. Noise. Breakfast not readily available, had to wait for chef to be called out even though we had booked the night before.
Setting and honest staff
Need some attantion on maintenance - very dirty and blocked basin
Excellent location. Animals in the grounds of the resort.
The room provided was nothing like what was booked and the staff were not helpful in resolving the problem The room that was booked had a double bed and a single bed, aircon and a sofa. The room provided had two single beds, no aircon and a single chair. Eventually the staff agreed to put a double bed in the room but this turned out to be the two single beds pushed together. The whole place has an air of neglect about it.
The view is amazing, very relaxing to sit outside by the river, also nice to walk in the bush. There are various animals walking around the lodge and this makes for excellent photography. (Nyala, Impala,Emu's, Peacocks etc). There are lots of interesting places to visit in the area, like the Debengeni Falls, Baobab Tree, Kruger National Park etc. The Fairview Hotel in Tzaneen also offers exceptional food and service. Further down the road, there is the Magoebaskloof Hotel and quant little restaurants and towns like Haenertsburg. The Lodge has a very reasonably priced bar in it and breakfast and dinner are served on request.
The rooms were very hot, no aircon only a fan. There are no fridges or tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The staff are friendly, however they do not seem to be promoting the place. Recommendations would be to advertise the meals served, the bar facilities andthe game drives, as i feel this is a good source to boost the income of the lodge. Whilst the lodge is pretty clean, the rooms were a bit dusty and the linen and towels are in need of replacement.
good feeling - nice atmosphere- excellent breakfast
Lodge does have WIFI! Beautiful place at a lake. Very nice architecture. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We could make a walk early in the morning before breakfast to watch the wild animals around the place. Only one menu for diner which changes every day. Breakfast and diner not included in the price.
Location, friendly and helpful staff, accommodation, excellent accommodation price, breakfast, excellent bar prices, wildlife, great mountain biking trails, decor
Supper quantity insufficient, TV and radio playing, kids' computer game on patio which created far too much noise in what should be a peaceful and relaxing area
