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...

A nice and clean place next to river and management / staff are cooperative and helpful. We stayed for two nights and stay was very comfortable. Food was fresh and tasty to enjoy. Only one thing was missing, play facilities for kids. Still nice place to stay. Thanks to Management

What a wonderful experience this past weekend at a beautiful venue on the Vaal River. The staff are wonderful and the food is excellent. A family friendly venue that the kids enjoyed. The accommodation is nice, clean and the rooms are well kept. We will be heading back to your venue for sure. Thanks for a great stay.

Being a beautiful today - we wanted to have lunch on the river and away from the crowds. And that is exactly what the Lodge offers - a fantastic deck on the water's edge, lovely shady garden - an easy meal, a cold drink and friendly service. Best burger patty, and nachos we had in a while. And the milkshake...

The lodge was very well located for my needs. It also is located right on the banks of the river which is nice. Sadly however, my room looked and smelled very tired. The room was very dark and the linens looked like they had been there a very long time and used many, many times. I would recommend a facelift...

The photo of the room looks nothing like what we had. The room was VERY dated and dire need of a refurb. The room was depressing. - no terrace to have a drink on nothing. The bathroom absolutely dated and depressing. The curtain in the bathroom window was so filthy it looked yellow and the shower curtain filthy and ancient!...
