        Peace of mind”

        The white Lizards in the room must be explained to the visitors before hand what their purpose inside. Otherwise a little replacement of old furniture especially the carbat in the shower.

        Change the sleeper couch!”

        After about four years we booked again after a horrible experience. Such a beautiful property and well located. Over-inflated beverage prices. It is all and well giving a package for Dinner and breakfast but does not help to make up on the drinks prices. The sleeper couches are the same as back then (Unsleepable), my 11-year-old had to share our bed with us. Maybe pull a king bed fitting over the two single beds if you never intend to replace the horrible sleeper couches so the kid does not fall through the middle of the two beds. As previously I should not even write this review for there will not be a response, as years ago.

        Good stay, restaurant and front desk needs to be revamped as it is looking shocking. More staff! ”

        Not child friendly at all. No pool net, at the pool at restaurant (kids kept trying to jump in and parents running to stop them!) Reception/restaurant/bar looks terrible needs a revamp. Deck also looking terrible! All balustrade poles are loose and kids can fall off the deck. VERY UNSAFE! Needs more welcome staff and waiters! Food was good Website says there was an indoor pool and there isn’t Tiling in rooms is very outdated, also our room 407 had a major damp issue there is a clear lack of maintenance Location is awesome and is such a pity the staff and lack of maintenance lets it down so much! Really disspapointed. Gardens also look terrible Certain areas need a paint! Not a 4star in my books maybe a 3

        What you see is not what you get, no view over the River from your room, old and no maintenance done, airconditioner did not work and double plug still not working, dishes was in sink when we arrived back at 14:00, floor was only cleaned after I asked for it, no mini fridge stocked as indicated......I see this lodge as a 2 star and not a 4! The view from the not maintained stoep/eating area was spectatcular but the lodge urgently needs attention/maintenance (broken wooden steps)

        The food

        The food was awesome! I mean it. The chef knows what they are doing. When we arrived at 2PM however our room was not clean and after asking reception 3 times, eventually someone came at 6PM to clean . when we were in the bath. There were rats in the ceiling and the thatch fell on us all night due to the rats activity. The sugar mill upstream caused the river to smell like a sewer and steam regularly..... so much for the sign not to swim due to crocodiles whahaa. I reckon even the crocodiles jumped ship. On a positive side though if the ceilings are fixed and the sugar mill cleans up their act this place will definitely be a 4 star establishment

        Nada de bom

        Após efetuar a reserva e pagamento dos dois quartos, para 3 noites, quando cheguei ao hotel não tinham os quartos que paguei. Lá me arranjaram um quarto para a primeira noite. Depois de dormir fui visitar o kruger parque e para meu espanto por volta das 14 horas recebi uma chamada do hotel a dizer que me iam trocar de quarto. Eu disse a eles que estava longe do hotel e para esperarem por mim, pois não autorizava que mexessem nas minhas coisas que estavam nos quartos. Para meu espanto quando chego ao hotel, já estavam outras pessoas no quartos e as minhas coisas estavam na recepção. Sinceramente não aconselho ninguém e nem me devolveram o valor que paguei, pois acabei por ir para outro hotel
