      Beware!!!!”
      The place is a dump, dont be fooled by the reception area. The staff was pleasant enough but they never warned us of the dump we were actually booking into for our overnight stay. We could hardly wait for the morning. by 8am were out of the place.

      THE PLACE WAS NOT CLEAN AT ALL”
      They booked us in into a cabin and the tv did not work, then they moved us to another cabin where the tv worked but the cabin was not clean at all, the shower were not nice to shower in and the fridge was not cleaned since I don't know when. We went out the Sunday evening and when we got back our parking place was occupied by another vehicle and in from of the cabin was another vehicle parked, that is unacceptable!!! We would certainly not recommend this to other people and we will not stay there again!!

      We booked online and the pics on the net is by far Not what you get. The cabin was awful and had a bad smell. Lucky for us Bernice phoned Sangiro Lodge and booked us in a bachelor unit there. This was amazing and had a great stay there. Will book Sangiro again and again. Bernice was awesome and very helpfull

      The permanent residents are loud all night long. Hotel parking not safe. It's not a restaurant op premises, it's pubs! Food is disgusting. They don't even offer milk for the coffee. Really not worth it. They might as well make the hotel part of the flats they have because that is what it is.

      We have stayed here many times over the years and sad to see how badly the place has gone downhill. There was no hot water at night and very loud music played till about 3am. The bathrooms were very grubby. We stayed in a chalet and a standard room in an annex. Beds and bedding in the standard room were terrible.

      Absolute terrible place, overrated, very dirty, very noisy, horrible place. Would not recommend it.”
      First chalet we were booked in was extremely dirty and falling apart. I booked for two adults and 1 small kid, no way we could sleep in that dirty place. At reception I complained, they give me the keys of the only place left according to them, it was a room with two single beds. Still very dirty, we slept very uncomfortable. The whole ''game'' lodge consisted of bars/shebeens, the only game there were the drunk people who kept everybody awake. On Sunday morning whe decided to leave and look for better place to sleep. They reacted as if I am a idiot and replied that they did not no that it was that bad at night. I would definitely not recommend this place at all. False advertising, photos are definitely not the true story. There are no game to be seen. This is a one star and definitely not a 3 star.

      Terrible venue, UNHAPPY Customer”
      Where to start?? The location of the 'lodge' is directly next to a main road, so very noisy all hours of the day and not the place to stay for a peaceful getaway as one might expect from a placed called a "lodge". On arrival our room was not ready, sheets were still being changed. There was no coffees or teas replenished and the unit was not adequately cleaned. Furthermore staff have keys to access the room at any stage and late in the afternoon whilst my wife was changing, a staff member just entered the unit without notice, knocking or warning. The beds are hard and uncomfortable and curtains can barely open properly. We had also earlier requested an early/ier check in which was not possible. But then the next day, check out is 09:30am, so dont bank on a slow morning either. The on-site pub goes till all hours of the night and we had loud noises, music and drunk people revving cars and motorbikes till early hours of the morning. Not a great experience by any stretch of the imagination. If you are up for a wild night of drinking and no sleep, you've found the perfect place. UNHAPPY CUSTOMER.

      The walls and floor were all dirty, only the linen was clean. The shower tiles were dirty and the cement between the tiles are mouldy. This was not value for money. There is a problem with the quality of the water thus making it impossible to drink the coffee or tea. In general the service made that I left after only one night, so not even bothering about having paid for two nights. When I spoke to the staff at reception they gave me answers that indicated a lack of professionalism and interest.
