We were at the lodge for the weekend and did experience slight dissapointment. Lodge need some detail maintenance and the staff was much more involved with themselves than attention to guests. Had to ask more than once for items for example ice for cool drinks and our room to be serviced.

We were invited to a 60th birthday party. The lodge is ok. It is situated in the most amazing location, beautiful sunsets etc. The food for the event was lovely. There was plentiful and tasty options. However, the breakfast was poor. The omelette was like a stiff board and tasteless! The staff are ok but do not radiate enthusiasm... just...

What I liked most is the staff good personality. The service is good but the food needs a good touch of a good chef. We enjoyed having breakfast in the garden with a view of the dam. That was beautiful. The turn-off from the main road is not clearly marked.

We had a lovely 'twice as nice' spa special! It was certainly a treat! Great therapists, beautiful view and nice clean rooms. It's definitely the right spot to force you to wind down and after the first day spa treatments you are relaxed to the max! Will definitely come back!

We spent the weekend in the Vaalview lodge with a whole bunch of friends for a 40th birthday. The lodge itself is very impressive and is an ideal location for a big group booking. The quality of food was also very good - especially the pizzas. Unfortunately the entire experience was ruined by the poor level of service which was...

Had sundowners and dinner at the Waterfront Lodge on Saturday the 3rd December. Our waiter was very attentive and ensured that everything our large group ordered arrived quickly. We were pleasantly surprised by the unusual and delicious toppings on the pizza, the chips my son ordered were huge, crispy and delicious and the fish and chips was also very tasty....

Being right next to the river the views on offer while dining are stunning. Despite several visits we have always enjoyed the delicious food and we love how involved management is. The accommodation is very comfortable and peaceful and with the spa it is a wonderful venue for a weekend away.

Stayed in a Family room which was lovely and very big. Bed was comfortable. Room and bathroom was clean. While the lodge itself is beautiful with stunning views, the pool has no deck chairs and is quite small so not really comfortable to sit around if you are wanting a lazy poolside day. Food was ok but the service levels...
