I stayed here earlier this year and was very impressed. However, this visit was not so good. The Lodge gives the impression of now being run "on the cheap". There was only soap in both rooms with no shampoo at all. The 1 ply toilet paper is the thinnest I have ever come across and there is only enough white...

Excellent overnight stay. Cats wandering around definitely gives it a homely feel. Would have given it a 5* if there was 2 prong adapters in the rooms, had been given the WiFi password and the curtains should have been a little thicker. Light outside the room was very bright. Otherwise excellent value for money. Small swimming pools dotted around the...

The rooms are very new and are nice and large. There is a walk in cupboard and powerful aircon. The bathroom is very big and is open plan. The desk is a very nice granite top and the furnishings tasteful. The room was immaculate and clean. The only two minor irritants were the one ply toilet paper and limited wall...

We stayed for 5 nights as a friend was getting married in Nelspruit. The rooms are nice and our children loved the dogs. The beds were very comfortable. Sadly we had lots of small issues - when booking said we were a family of 4, but when we arrived there were only 3 beds - when we informed them they...

A beautiful establishment, well appointed rooms. Stayed there for a weekend and service was ok. Owners should pay attention to the small and finer details and this place can easily be a 4 star establishment. Let down was security gate which was not functioning well

When we were (finally) let in through the electric operated fences, we were shown our room which was small, bare and had no atmosphere at all. The shower was having pressure problems, hot, cold hot cold. That said: The mattrasses on the beds were excellent. In addition a 9 am check out time, when you are on holiday does not...

We were on a long road trip in South Africa. We stayed here; as a launchpad for Kruger Park. We opted for a self-catering unit. Picked groceries from 'Spar' which is nearby & cook your own stuff. The owners are very warm & friendly. You can 'braai' by the pool. There's nice little bar adjoining the reception. The construction of...
