    Photos are deceiving”
    Initially the first perception is great. When you arrive at the reception the staff was helpful and it is very clean and beautiful giving a good Africa feel to the place. It is when you get to the room that everything turns South. Based only on the room we stayed in: Firstly the carpets are very dirty and old. The place had a stench hanging in the air which we think was coming from the drains in the bathroom. The basin was loose. Overall the room's impression was that it was lacking some basic maintenance and hygiene. Breakfast was great tough. We travel allot and I am very disappointed in what we got for what we paid.

    Dissapointling”
    Really not what we were hoping and paying for. Pictures are deceiving. Room that we stayed in smelled like mold, carpets are so dirty you cannot walk barefoot over it. Two single beds pushed together with only a sheet over does not equal a comfy bed, please do invest in some decent mattress toppers! Honestly one of the worst places I have stayed in and would not recommend this to anyone.

    GPS directions from mokopane are not correct, we ended up in some gravel road and car got stuck for over 1hr30min because of sand. Soo traumatising for someone travelling with kids. That needs to be reviewed, for peoples safery please.

    Lovely Country Hotel”
    The room we were in is not large, but for a one night which we stayed (Or even a weekend) it was more than sufficient. Bed was comfortable and clean. The room had a bath/shower, toilet and basin. Coffee making facilities. Aircon & TV. Breakfast the next morning was a buffet, and would rate it 10/10. Overall a great spot.

    Stunning gardens and scenery. Bathrooms were a bit dated but clean. Unfortunately the carpets are very dusty and could do with a deep suction clean. A problem when you have children that are allergic to dust. All round, wonderful stay!

    Wonderful setting!”
    The surroundings and set up were delightful and obviously a huge amount of imagination had gone in to creating the ambience of the place - wonderful lot of old and interesting objects, paintings, furniture etc around and they were even kind enough to let my husband have a book from the "library". We had an evening meal that was very tasty sitting outside on a beautiful warm evening. Even though there was a wedding on and families it was amazingly quiet. Just a note regarding our bathroom though - could do with extra maintenance but probably a re fitting with a shower would probably be a better option as it looked more than a little tired around the edges - that said - we know it all costs money and not every thing can be done - it is obvious they have not been sitting on their laurels and evidence of that is the lovely spa which I partook of at 7.30 am! A great place and thank you to the kind attention of the staff.

    Quite and relaxing”
    Hotel and Facilities: Very elegantly styled and well maintained grounds and buildings. Very nice decor with a lot of history behind them. Friendly staff and great anemeties. Room: Dissapointing. We booked one of the family rooms. On arrival several light bulbs were missing or not working, Aircon was not working and TV picture quality is basically not watchable. I reported the issues (response below). The rooms are great, but the experience is sullied by the problems not being fixed. For a 4 Star Hotel I also extected at least a fridge in the room. No Fridge + the No AC meant no way to keep cool as we could not keep cold water to drink. Hotel Reponse: They replaced the lights, TV unchanged and the Aircon they just replced the remote which did not solve the problem as the AC still did not work. This meant for a uncomfortable night in hot summer room.

    Even not close to "fantastic"! Much closer to "awful"!”
    I have arrived on Friday evening. The lodge is difficult to find in the darkness. I had to phone the reception and ask how far it is on the Erstbewoon Road from the Bela-Bela to Madimolle Road. The information was "c. 7 km" the true distance was 15 km! The lodge makes a nice impression at the beginning but seeing the Rondawel from inside was disappointing, bulbs had to be replaced immediately (was done well) carpets and furniture were at least 20 years old, the bathroom clean, but at least 40 years old, no shower, no mixed water taps, no hooks to hang towels, etc.... The restaurant is well placed and there is a nice bar, but after having a drink and ordering a fillet, it took the kitchen one hour to deliver a rare-medium steak that came medium to well done, with disgusting veggies of t few carrot and green been stripes, no seasoning (ever heard of black pepper, thyme or something, olive oil?) and the fillet was dry, I assume from frozen beef, really not testy. I think, for the first time in my life I left half steak untouched. This is not acceptable and considering that no mare than 3 couples were in the restaurant at that time also not understandable. Next morning I saw the swimming pool first, hoping for a dive. But, I found a dark green cloak, just algae, good for frogs, otherwise absolutely disgusting! The lodge prepared for a large wedding event and all were busy, the service during the day suffered from it, but I can excuse that. They were all friendly and trying their best, which however, is just not enough. The evening was busy because of the wedding and crowds of Afrikaners, drinking too much and being very loud. I ordered a pizza, it was better than the steak but far from crisp and well baked. Nevertheless, it came faster than the steak. The entire menu only contains lamb or pork neck, 3 varieties of steaks, one variety of chicken pasta, and 3 or 4 pizzas. How is this a 4 star "fantastic" hotel? I wanted to have matches to light my cigar, no ma

    We needed a over night stay , the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The food (breakfast) was out of this world. Air-con help to break the cold and we had a lovely rest in a family room. Bathrooms were very clean and tidy , but may need some dating.

    The airconditioner did not work properly. This was brought to the attention of the staff when we moved into the room. We were told that a technician will check on it the next day. We spent the whole night in an extremely heated room and waited till 4pm the next day, complained to the staff again of the same problem and then only were we placed in another room with a fully functional airconditioner.

    Great value for money ( in the more luxury class)”
    Stunning Bedroom, Privacy, Bautiful dining room and bar.
    The hotel is easily accessible to the highway. The Hotel main building is beautiful and leaves a renaissance feeling in the bushveld. The room we stayed in definitely needs refurbishing in the bathroom as it was not on par with the rest of the room. The shower is still old style with only a curtain infront. Tiles old, broken and door cannot close. The Jacuzzi is leaking and needs some attention with the bathroom. We will definitely visit the hotel again as it was very good value for money. Had we paid more I would have expected no mosquitos in the suite and a better bathroom. The best cuppuchino's and pot bread!
