They should install alternative energy. There was no electricity on the Sunday from 6am to 9pm. So the day was not enjoyable at all. This means one could not enjoy being at the facility at all on the day.

very nice resort, we do not play golf but enjoyed watching what was going on. Staff are very friendly and helpful. l Would say that you could do with an extra small plate at breakfast for the toast. And at times the grass cutting when you were trying to have a rest went on for quite sometime, but having said...

Our stay was fairly good, I loved our time there. Only one issue: The kitchen staff not so friendly, breakfast not entirely enjoyable. Some sort of formal kitchen wear will also do - they were poorly dressed, not reflective of the stature and ambiance of Matumi Golf Lodge. Otherwise, our room and the rest of the facilities are top class.

The staff reception needs a wakeup call. Those two men are unwelcoming, not helpful at all. They do not portray the professionalism we are accustomed to at most hotels through our travels. They give the impression of not taking their job very seriously and that is not good. The estate and room was nice though.

Terrrible service. Breakfast took 2 hours to prepare. Stains on bedding. Rooms dirty. TV not working. Broken shower doors. I have been to many 5 star lodges and this is not 5 star. This is 2 maybe 3 at best. Do not pay to stay at Matumi

Stunning and so peaceful, with the best staff! Very accommodating. Good breakfast and room very clean. Location is good and are safe to go for a jog. Would like the club house to be open later than 18h00 to have dinner close to the guesthouse.

It is very quite safe place. The view around it is very beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. I asked them to prepare my breakfast 45 min before the scheduled time and they kindly arranged it. The only suggestion I would propose is to give the guest an access card to enter the security gate.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Matumi Golf Lodge is a 5 Star bed & breakfast establishment, situated in the tranquil and secure environment of the Matumi Golf Estate in Nelspruit in Mpumalanga, province of the Rising Sun. Just 25 km from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, the Lodge is situated close to the world-renowned Kruger National Park, with the nearest entrance gate to the park being less than one hour’s drive away. Matumi Golf Lodge is the perfect place for quiet weekend breaks, energetic golf trips or a more luxurious, comfortable setting for the travelling professional. The lodge is ideally positioned midway up the 9th fairway of the Nelspruit Golf course (Home of the annual “Jock Open” golf tournament) with magnificent views over the golf course and the Crocodile River Valley. The lodge boasts 7 spacious, luxuriously furnished rooms, tastefully decorated to create a relaxed, sophisticated yet homely atmosphere after a long day for the travelling professional, aspiring golfer or international holidaymaker alike. The rooms are comprised of three different categories, i.e. “Deluxe / Luxury Rooms,” and the “Executive / Honeymoon Suite,” each catering for the individual requirements of residing guests. These differences are mainly attributed to bathroom fixtures and fittings, bed types and overall room size. The reception desk will be pleased to assist you in planning your visits to the numerous tourist attractions the region has to offer. The bar area provides a warm environment in which to relax around the fire stove on cold winter evenings, while during warmer weather, watching the sun set over the fairways from the outside patio is the ideal way to end one’s day. Breakfast at Matumi Golf Lodge is undoubtedly the highlight of the day. The full breakfast is included in the room rate and special dietary requirements will gladly be cater for; these can be stipulated during reservations. Lunch and dinner are available on request. ... more   less
