Pretty but smelly”
The experience was marred by uncomfortable damp smell in rooms which made a peaceful nights’ sleep impossible. Beautiful place, great service, very friendly staff. The gardens were to die for!

Dated bedrooms”
Makaranga Garden Lodge has beautiful gardens, but the bedrooms are very dated with cheap and unattractive furnishings. This is a pity because the setting is lovely and the Lodge has such potential. The place just needs a serious make-over.

Acceptable”
Staff definitely not professional. On arrival we had to carry all our lugguage in by ourselves . When we got to the room with all the bags a staff member informed us they've send us to the wrong room. So there we go with all the bags again. The key of one of the rooms we've booked wasnt working and for 4 days the staff couldn't fix it so we were given the master key that the cleaning staff use. So from a security point of view That's a bit dodgy. Noise levels at the hotel is extremely high. Staff members arriving in the mornings make such a noise walking past the rooms and talking as loud as they can. Our room was right next to the restaurant which made it very noisy. If your looking for peace and quiet this is not the place. The food at the restaurant was good and the rooms were clean.

The water in the shower was lukewarm late at night and in the morning. Not for the first time, there was one bath towel and one hand towel. Despite there being 2 guests in the room. In the room it took over 10 minutes to get the housekeeping department to bring the extra towel& she arrived singing...

Disappointed”
The room was large but lacked character. The bathroom was awful- needs to be renovated immediately. I did not ask for a paraplegic friendly room but received one. Very disappointed in the standard.

Stay last weekend”
All good - apart from Internet which packed up on Saturday and then hadn't been fixed even when we left on Monday morning. Not good enough these days to not have technical cover for weekend issues with vital Internet connectivity!!

It was fair. The room was old. The toilet had a smell coming from it. The room was big. The staff were rude and unhelpful. The room service closed at 10pm ridiculous. The front gate was unsafe as had to wait for guard late at night. Felt could be better.

The Hotel itself and all the ammenities superb
The hotel itself is superb, the location, room, bar, pool area, gardens excellent, had a very comfortable stay. The service from the staff was very very poor - everything they did moved at a snails pace, room service, ironing, service at the restaurant the waiting times were extremely long. They really need to improve on that.
