Score from 21 reviews Wonderful
non was available and when I did get a signal it was aweful. This needs to be seriously looked at if you are catering for business people.
Stayed in suite. Big room, big bathroom and double balcony. Beautiful views of the garden.
Not warned at check-in that a music event was being held that weekend at the property. Noisy and disruptive to paying guests (e.g. bar area reserved for the event day). Stayed in suite and found it quite 'empty'. No premium amenities or treatment. Just another room in the hotel. Room-service menu a photo copy of a typed up list with spelling mistakes and unprofessional layout. Cancellation fee through booking.com is excessive. 50% even if you cancel 60+ days in advance!
The gardens The excellent food Friendly staff
Service is a bit slow
Room, Gardens, Restaurant and general ambience. Thank you!
Having to leave!
The rooms were in a lovely setting.
Things in the room were broken and should have been checked and repaired. The chain lock on the door was broken. The aircon remote didnt work so I had to swap batteries from the tv remote into the aircon remote to make it work. That kind of thing should be checked by room keeping daily!!! Also, it wasnt warm on the dates I travelled and when I got into my room the balcony door was open on both days! Pretty silly.
Comfortable bed, nice sized room and bathroom, friendly staff, good food, excellent continental breakfast.
Room heater not good. Remote control batteries for heating/aircon dead, could be checked by staff. Poor picture quality on most TV channels. Bathroom looking dated. Guest in next (interconnecting) room (9) smoking in room and smell of smoke coming into my room (10).
The rooms were outstanding, service excellent. Enjoyed everything especially the wonderful gardens. A not to be missed experience.
Everything was excellent.
The sirene natural environment...great stuff
I was made to pay double because we did our booking via booking.com and the other couple did not make it. This is absolute rip off considering that the lodge is in control to giveaway a room if the guest doesnt pitch. I was disgusted but i understand better now!
Cozy calm atmosphere, friendly. Fabulous garden feels as if you are on another planet!
Not enough time to stay longer!
Beautiful gardens, lovely big rooms, still had a homely feel to the place - food great!
Poor internet connection which is not great when a business visitor
Close to Business destination
-Booking had not been processed by bookings.com -Admin took ages -TV not working properly
bathrooms need a revamp
The staff were good. Rooms very comfortable, beds amazing. And the wonderful gardens were out of this world!
Staff in restaurant were slow. Breakfast took 1 hour to serve. Need a buffet breakfast to speed up process.
What a lovely place this is. Set in the most beautiful gardens, this is an exceptional place to stay. We couldn't find fault with anything at Makaranga - staff were accommodating and food and service extremely good as were the bedrooms and public areas. We certainly wouldn't hesitate in recommending Makaranga to anyone looking for a short or longer stay.
Can't think of anything
Reception Desk Service needs attention. Very Average
Wonderful gardens and spa
Staff were not as welcoming as they could be, but no serious issues!
it was peaceful. I would recommend the place to anyone.
the special pricing was so great. please let me know when the pricing is the same or better. I would love to stay there again.
The service from reception staff on check in and check out
For the money I paid it was awful. I went to my Sister in law's wedding and the admin staff tried to charge me for the drinks at the wedding. When I arrived I was exhausted after the long drive, I am 72, and my supper was awful. They told me that there wasn't any potato left, (on the menu) because the table beside mine had taken it all!!! Altogether it was an unprofessional disaster. After the wedding, my sister in law and her new husband went to ask to be shown to their room which came with the package they had booked. No room was prepared for them. They had to wait about an hour!!
