    Bad service ”

    I booked and paid for a family room. However when we checked in, room paid for was not ready. As a result, we were moved to a smaller room. But we were charged the same rate. The downgraded room had no towels. When we asked for towels, we were told the laundry was locked. We could only be given towels the following morning. This room is close to the main entrance - very noisy. There was lots of noise late into the night and early in the morning. We were not accommodated at the African Lodge as we expected (reservation confirmation) but at an establishment said to be affiliated to the African Lodge. We lost time going to the African Lodge and not straight to this other place. No explanation was given for this change. Most disappointing is that not one single person - from the owner, the manager and the person on duty when we checked I, took responsibility for the mess up. They didn't care. I will never book there again. And I will also warn all I care about from making the same mistake

    Service and attitude is awful! ”

    Would not stay at this place. We arrived at the lodge at 9:30 pm, the gate was closed. I called the after hours line and their regular line, could not get anybody to answer the phone. Tried honking banking on at the gate. After an hour hoping to get someone we finally gave up and decided to purchase more minutes for the local SIMM card we had just used up on the calls and call customer service at Agoda. Unfortunately customer service at Agoda drop the call. A few minutes I got a call from a gentleman who told me he was from the lodge. We turned around went back to the hotel only to find out that they did not have room for us at the property, he suggested we follow him to their sister property. The whole time he was on the other phone to his girlfriend while I assume he was trying to find a room for us. I end up paying extra for a third room because they did not have a room with two beds. The place was freezing and no towels at all in the room.

    Disappointing”

    Two days of international travel were met with a two-night stay where the close proximity of guest rooms meant that we would not sleep well at night because of noise from other guests. It would have been less problematic if all guests weren’t required to sign an agreement, which included quiet hours from 10pm. When I called to complain past midnight on our second night because our toddler had been awakened, we were offered complementary breakfast the next morning - perhaps a reasonable gesture had our reservation not already included breakfast. We were grateful to not have booked at African Lodge for our second stint in Bloemfontein later this month.

    Very expensive for quality of accommodation. Doesn't accomodate 5 adults (single bunk beds r small) ”

    There was a lot of noise into the early hours of the morning - patrons hooting to get out the gate. Not sure if they rent rooms by the hour for......(you can guess what) ....activities.

    Our stay was pleasant for a one-night stop over. My only complaint is that the rooms are very, very dark with poor lighting and no dining options.
